Went to this place at the weekend and was great. Long drive but plenty of stop off points where you can view sand and the sea. Make sure you look at comfortable rentals if you are hiring cars but there are plenty of travel operators...More

Today we drove down the Ocean Road as far as Apollo Bay. The road does follow the coastline, and along the route you do find nice beach towns and a nice coastline but nothing particularly iconic. If you have ever driven the California coastline (highway...More
