The Great Ocean Road is a must-do if you are in Melbourne. To give a disclaimer, it is an all-day commitment. Nevertheless, it is a commitment worthwhile. The scenery is beautiful and breathtaking. My spirit was full seeing the 12 Apostles, Koalas, and Kangaroos. Our driver was full of enthusiasm the entire trip, which is important because half of the trip was in the van! Not to mention, he was extremely patient as I and a few others were late to the bus on a few stops (whoops! When in Australia, am I right?). Overall, this trip is something you will not regret. If you have kids, I would recommend giving them a book to read or something to keep them entertained driving in between destinations. If you are traveling solo, that is fine, too! We had several solo travelers, but by the end, we were all well acquainted. I was in Australia for nearly two and a half weeks and did a lot. However, this was certainly a highlight of my trip. That's how good it was. If you're going to drop some cash, this is where I would do it!
