Take in the scenery

Victoria’s dramatic south-west coastline covers an incredible range of scenery. See the world-famous waves at Bells Beach or laze on the sand at Anglesea. Visit the charming old fishing village of Port Fairy and get among the buzzing arts community in Lorne. Of course, you can’t miss the 12 Apostles. These craggy limestone stacks rising majestically from the Southern Ocean are a must-see. Join a scenic flight with 12 Apostles Helicopters to see the Bay of Islands, London Bridge or the entire Shipwreck Coast all the way to Australia’s oldest lighthouse at Cape Otway.

Get into nature

From rainforests and rivers to old volcanoes and rugged coastlines, the Great Ocean Road showcases nature at its most diverse. In Great Otway National Park you’ll see thundering waterfalls and sparkling gorges and walk through the tops of ancient, mossy trees. The Otway Fly Treetop Walk is a 600-metre (0.4-mile) long elevated treetop walk that ascends at a gentle grade through a magnificent stand of cool temperate rainforest. Thrill seekers can choose the Otway Fly Zipline Tour and zip between “cloud stations” 30 metres (98 feet) above the forest floor. Need to stretch your legs? See deserted sandy beaches, thick forests and some of Australia’s highest sea cliffs on the 91-kilometre (57-mile) Great Ocean Walk.

Sample the local produce

The Great Ocean Road will tempt your tastebuds with sumptuous local produce, great dining and excellent wineries. For seafood, visit the Lorne Fisheries Co-Op to taste the local fishermen’s morning catch (the freshly shucked oysters are a must) or the Apollo Bay Fishermen’s Co-Op for delicious flake and chips. Pick your own raspberries and blackberries from the Pennyroyal Raspberry Farm and blueberries from Shoebridge Blueberry Farm. Or get into the gourmet cheeses at delicatessens in Allansford, Timboon and Cooriemungle. Cool-climate wineries stretch the length of the Great Ocean Road. Stop off at a cellar door, such as the Basalt Vineyard in the Henty wine region, or Bellbrae Estate near Bells Beach. Book well in advance for dinner at upmarket restaurant Brae, which serves a set menu created from the highest quality local ingredients.

Meet the wildlife

The Great Ocean Road is home to an abundance of native wildlife. At Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve, near Warrnambool, you can take a 60-minute tour with an Aboriginal guide who will explain the history of this unique area as you spot emus, kangaroos, koalas and lizards. At nearby Logans Beach you can watch southern right whales calve in a nursery close to shore between May and September. Join a Seals by Sea tour to see hundreds of fur seals at Cape Bridgewater, or swim with dolphins at Queenscliff on the Bellarine Peninsula. See koalas in the wild at Kennett River and in the Great Otway National Park, and enjoy a game of golf alongside grazing kangaroos at Anglesea. For something completely different, canoe alongside platypus on Lake Elizabeth on a guided tour at dawn.

Visit the Brambuk centre in Halls Gap to see fascinating displays of art and artefacts and join a tour to visit some of rock art sites dating back 22,000 years in the Grampians National Park

What is ETA (visa subclass 601)?

The ETA Australia is an online electronic travel authority, similar to the United States ESTA, that allows visas for Australia to be issued electronically, eliminating the need to supply paper applications to an embassy.

The majority of foreign passport holders are required to get one type of visa for Australia before traveling to the country, with the exception of New Zealand citizens. The ETA subclass 601 visa is available for citizens of 8 countries online, while citizens of European states can instead apply for the eVisitor (subclass 651) online.

Before applying for ETA, it’s necessary to meet the Australia visa requirements, which involve having a valid passport from an eligible country valid for at least 3 months upon entry to Australia.
