Sometimes a drive is just a drive, a matter of getting from one place to another. Other times the drive is an experience to be savoured. If you are visiting Australia with Totally Australia, the Great Ocean Road is a beautiful adventure just waiting for you. A car rental in Australia can provide you with the only tools you will need. You just need to bring yourself.

The Great Ocean Road was built by Australian soldiers as a memorial for those killed in World War I and wends its scenic way around 440 kilometres of coastline. As it curves through Southwest Victoria, it passes some of the most incredible scenery in the world. Shipwreck Coast, the rocky coast along the Great Ocean Road, includes the 12 Apostles, enormous stacked limestone formations in the ocean. A short drive west of the 12 Apostles is the Loch Ard Gorge, a tucked in gorge with sheer cliff faces and a certain wild beauty.

The Grotto just west of Port Campbell is a stunning natural arch, and this picturesque stop is followed by Wreck Beach, where you can walk down to see the anchors of the shipwrecked Marie Gabrielle and the Fiji. The Bay of Martyrs is slightly less popular but no less spectacular than the 12 Apostles, with incredible wide, flat rock formations jutting up from the ocean.

There is more than just scenery to attract visitors to the Great Ocean Road, however. This is a great stretch for whale watching, as well as spotting both well- and lesser-known Australian animals. Koalas, wallabies, kangaroos, crocodiles, fairy penguins, wombats, and, a few kilometres off the beaten path, the incredible star-like glow worms at Melba Gully.

The Great Ocean Road is the drive of a lifetime. Take your time travelling and stop for the night at one of seaside villages along the way. Look for hidden treasures as well as the major tourist spots, and you will not be disappointed
