What you can’t miss on “The Great Ocean Road”

Hey #Rapunzille babes!

I'm SO happy to hear that you're planning a trip to see The Great Ocean Road here in down under Australia.

If you are planning a trip down the The Great Ocean Road and don’t have a whole lot of time, here are the “TOP” “MUST-SEE” things to do on your trip.

Be prepared to see some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world!

Gibson's Step | Great Ocean Road | Australia

MUST SEE #1 – Gibsons Steps

You must go to Gibsons Steps which will allow you a close up view of one of the 12 Apostles.

You can view all of the remaining apostles from a viewpoint nearby, but being up close and personal is as good as it gets! Just make sure you wear super comfy shoes with a good grip. The hike down the steps can be quiet slippery, especially when you will be too busy dribbling over the jaw dropping view on the way down. You will most certainly be in awe of the majestic and powerful ocean, however be sure you check the tide, as this beach is fierce and beautiful and you do not want to be among the ocean as the tide comes in.

Bells Beach | Great Ocean Road | Australia The iconic Australian summer is spent by the ocean surfing. Don’t be fooled, just because you’re a strong swimmer doesn’t mean you can tackle these oceans! I recommend taking some surf lessons, available in almost any town down the Great Ocean Road! Build up your confidence and then head out yourself! (Remember to never swim alone, aka have someone watching from the beach or swim in between the lifeguard flags at front beaches).

 

MUST SEE #2 – Surf Bells Beach

MUST SEE #3 – Soak up the sun

Grab a beach towel and put on your swimwear, and get ready to soak up the amazing Aussie sun. SLIP, SLOP, SLAP! This is an Aussie saying to put on some sunscreen! Don’t fool yourself. YOU WILL GET BURNT.
Camping | Great Ocean Road | Australia

MUST SEE #4 – Sunrise while Camping

This has to be one of my most memorable experiences down the Great Ocean Road. I camped in Princetown which is close to the 12 Apostles.You can also camp all along the Great Ocean Road. In peak season you usually need a booking, but this particular campsite was a first in best dressed type of system.The image is mist coming off the river at 5am, truly breathtaking.  You can camp at the very same place by clicking HERE.

MUST SEE #5 – 12 Apostles Lookout

This is the place that most tourists come to see the classic views like the photos above. It is BEAUTIFUL and breathtaking, however get an early start to feel like you have the whole place to yourself.
Port Campbell | Great Ocean Road | Australia

MUST SEE #6 – Port Campbell Beach

Port Campbell is an adorable beach that puts on a insane sunset. This is the main town near the 12 Apostles. It has cafes a general store and a few pubs.Most hotels and hostels are located in this area, and is a great place to base yourself if you are exploring the 12 Apostles end of the great ocean road.If you like to go fishing, this is a great spot and you can rub shoulders with the locals.
Lorne | Great Ocean Road | Australia

MUST SEE #7 – Lorne Beach + The Great Otway National Park.

Check out the amazing purple sunsets in mid summer on Lorne Beach. Lorne is a gorgeous town, with lots of trendy cafes and relaxed restaurants.It is a great base to see and hike the Otway’s and explore local waterfalls.
