Surf, fun, sand, waterfalls, adventure and spectacular scenery


The Surf Coast, only 75 kilometres southwest of Melbourne is the start of many a Great Ocean journey.
Surf, fun, sand, adventure and spectacular scenery…it’s a winning combination that ranks Victoria’s Surf Coast as a top Australian holiday destination.

The Surf Coast includes the main towns of Torquay, Anglesea, Aireys Inlet (believed to be one of the Great Ocean Road’s greatest secrets) and Lorne.

Lorne is the final stop along the Surf Coast and one of the more well-known and well-established coastal settlements within the Great Ocean Road region. 
Winchelsea in the Hinterland is a  classic country victorian town; a great break in your journey and an inland gateway to the state’s southwest and the Otways.

You will enjoy meeting the locals who will make you feel so welcome, kick off your shoes and soak up the ambience of your coastal visit.
