Melbourne to Torquay & Bells Beach - 90 minutes drive approximately. It is nice to see such wonderful comments about the great ocean road.i have read some travel blogs ,where people have found the great ocean road underwhelming.i don't think they spent enough time exploring the region,to appreciate it.There was a documentry called the Art of walking about three peoples experiences doing the Great Ocean walk and boy ,the beaches were can watch it on You years ago,after visiting the Grampians,we drove to the Twelve Appostles and then onto Wilsons promontory.i didn't do all the great ocean road,but I thought it was rather nice.People have perth to monkey mia (why not try this out) learn to arrive at a place with no expectations,because if you picture a place in your mind and find it was not what you thought it would be ,then you will be disappointed.Thanks for your posative thougts on the great Ocean Road.
