Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    One of the issues with the Great Ocean Road is that it's not exactly fun to drive. The scenery is lovely but driving the road itself isn't and if you or your passengers are prone to motion sickness then the twisty and windy road won't be the most fun experience of a lifetime.

    Luckily there are plenty of vantage points along the way such as this particular lookout so that you can break up the drive, get some fresh air and grab some lovely landscape photos.

    Mount Defiance Lookout provides good views - especially to the eastward. It should be doubly noted that stopping regularly allows the driver to enjoy the scenery. Otherwise they are mainly concentrating on the road ahead and missing out on the views! This lookout is most easily accessed if you are doing the Great Ocean Road in a westwards direction.

    We passed this memorial a few times going back and forward from Wye River caravan park. I then decided we should have a look and pleased we did. It looks like a grave site but fear not, it's just a memorial. There is a good pictorial plaque on the small lookout which details the whole event. Check it oput.

    A mildly interesting beach in the tiny town of Wye River. There is decent amounts of parking and a store nearby and facilities. It makes a nice enough place for a quick wander especially if you'd like to stop somewhere that isn't one of the more mandatory Great Ocean Road stops like Lorne or Apollo Bay.

    One of those beaches you probably wouldn't swim at but it has a sort of dark foreboding about it when overcast that might interest photographers.
