The Great Ocean Road is one of Australia’s most enchanting drives: a massive stretch of awesome adventures, gorgeous forests, rugged beaches and stunning attractions, all of which combine to create one unforgettable escape!

The price of touring the Great Ocean Road depends on how slowly you want to do it as well as a range of other factors, including:

1. Where do you want to stay?

The Great Ocean Road, being one of Australia’s most gorgeous coastal stretches, is not short of accommodation options! The awesome thing about this is that you have plenty of price options when it comes to deciding where you want to stay.

For example, the awesome tourist towns of Apollo Bay, Lorne and Torquay all offer everything from low-priced hostel dorms to mid-priced cottages and luxury houses (which will obviously cost a decent amount of coin).

The plethora of options is partly what makes the Great Ocean Road so accessible, as you could choose to stay in a top quality hostel for a couple of nights or really luxe it up with your own private pool in a treetop villa!

2. What do you want to do?

You’re going to the Great Ocean Road to get a few awesome experiences in, right? Whether that is learning to surf at Bells Beach, ziplining at the awesome Otway Fly Treetop Adventures, skydiving over the coast’s wondrous expanse or refreshing your senses at one of the region’s uber-chilled day spas, there is plenty to enjoy along this awesome road.

Of course, such experiences have to be factored into your budget. There are free activities like the must-see Port Campbell National Park, but also plenty of paid activities you might want to do so it’s important to take these into account before you hit the road…

3. What do you want to eat?

The Great Ocean Road, as well as being utterly gorgeous, is one of Australia’s culinary hotspots, with delightful seafood in the Bass Strait and delectable produce in the farms and pastures above!

Naturally, this produces a range of dining options, which run anywhere from some of the country’s best fish ‘n’ chips at the Apollo Bay Fishermen’s Co-Op to the famous MoVida Lorne, serving up Australia’s finest Spanish fare outside of Melbourne or Sydney.

Of course, you can always pick up your food from the supermarket and cook for yourself, but you’re on vacay – live a little!
