Great Southern Touring Route

The Great Southern Touring Route is regarded as one of the world’s best road trips.

The journey starts in Melbourne and takes in the waterfront city of Geelong, the food and wine region of Bellarine Peninsula and the spectacular Great Ocean Road — including the dramatic rock formation of the Twelve Apostles.

It passes through the seaside city of Warrnambool, the majestic nature and Aboriginal heritage of Grampians National Park, the gold rush history and grandeur of Ballarat and the health-giving waters of Daylesford and spa country.

Spot wildlife lurking in the bush, whales cruising the ocean and throw a boomerang, delving into the ancient Dreamtime.

Taste the gifts of the earth and ocean at the source — mineral springs wellness, fresh seafood and award-winning wines.

This road trip offers an adventure full of experiences that will delight and inspire every traveller.
