Folks,  very little needs to be said about the Great Ocean Road.  It’s a pretty straightforward thing – just drive and enjoy the sights.

Two things are worth mentioning though: 1. plan two days for the trip,  and 2. the cheapest and possibly most fun way to do the GOR is by doing a rideshare – if you are traveling solo or as a couple and want to minimize your costs.  We did this and turned out to hit the jackpot with our rideshare group – everyone was a great travel mate and fun to be around!

Anyway, here are some of the things we saw along the way on our Great Ocean Road adventure!
