Make a holiday rental villa on the Great Ocean Road, Australia your home away from home

A self catering villa on the Great Ocean Road affords a vast array of sights, parks, swimming and surfing beaches, rainforest and coastal activities. One moment you can be in any of the urban areas like Torquay with all the modern facilities needed and the next you could be swinging through the tree tops of the rainforest at Otway Fly Tree Top Adventures. Walkers are also well catered for here with the 30 kilometre Surf Coast Walk from Jan Juc Beach to Bells Beach or the Great Ocean Walk along Victoria’s coastline.

There are also some very good Mountain biking trails behind Apollo Bay and in the Otway National Park. In fact action is the byword for holiday villas on the Great Ocean Road with surfing, of course, at the many beaches or canoeing on Lake Elizabeth with a chance of spotting the shy platypus in its natural habitat. There are several National Parks all with gentle walking trails that allow the best of the natural forests and landscape to be enjoyed including some magical waterfalls and cascades.

It takes two to three days to see the whole of the area making a holiday home on the Great Ocean Road the perfect base for visiting as much as possible. The most scenic part of the journey is between Peterborough and Port Campbell which falls within Port Campbell National Park with its many extraordinary rock formations.

Great location near a walking path and within walking distance to shops and beach. The house was well fitted out. Maryanne was a pleasure to communicate with. We hope to be back.
