Top 4 Places to Stop Along the Great Ocean Road

By Jackie Dreyer

Combine the road trip of a lifetime with a surfing excursion to never forget when you head to the province of Victoria on an Australian getaway. All along the coast of Victoria is the Great Ocean Road, or "Surf Coast Highway," which runs from Torquay to Allansford to show you all the best of southeastern Australia's coastline.

Prepare yourself for breathtaking views of rainforests, beaches, cliffs, and more as you glamp at our top four places to stop along the Great Ocean Road.

Luxury Retreat by the Great Ocean Road, Australia alt

These unique suites and luxury accommodations in Geelong will get glampers right next to one of the best beaches along the Great Ocean Road: Fairhaven Beach. With almost four miles of beach to explore and enjoy, spend all day swimming, surfing, and fishing—the three main activities in the area. Sleep well every night listening to the soothing sounds of the surf from your deluxe rental, leaving you relaxed, refreshed, and ready to hop in the ocean again the next morning.

Spacious, Romantic Getaway Studio, Australia alt

Situated slightly off the coast in the town of Buckland sits this spacious, romantic getaway studio in the Alpine Valley of Victoria's High Country, surrounded by one-of-a-kind, lush, mountainous vistas. We haven't even begun to tell you how aesthetically stunning the accommodation itself is, either! With a funky, modern exterior and an open floor plan in the interior, this luxury rental boasts stylish decor, a to-die-for bathroom with a soaking bathtub, and more. The cherry on the sundae is that a home-cooked continental, country-style breakfast is included, too!

Luxurious Treehouses Within Australian Rainforest in Victoria, Australia alt

Wander a little ways off the Great Ocean Road to these luxurious tree houses in Olinda, which sit on almost five acres of natural rainforest and fern gullies. Each tree house can accommodate two guests, perfect for a romantic road trip stay, and each with jaw-dropping views of the surrounding tropical flora. Stretch your legs on long hikes through these exotic woodlands and take long leisurely baths in the luxurious bathroom of your tree house to prepare for the next leg of your car journey!

Romantic Luxury Getaway Nestled in the Hepburn Shire, Australia alt

You won't want to miss this detour off of the Surf Coast Highway to these impeccably stylish luxury tents in Sailors Falls. Secluded away from it all on a private, almost 14-acre glamping property, you'll be right next to Hepburn Regional Park and the Mount Franklin Reserve, both of which are sure to provide you with plenty outdoor adventure and a break from hitting the waves.
