The Grampians National Park is about 150 km directly north of the Great Ocean Road. From the coast at Port Fairy it’s about a two hour drive to Halls Gap in the Grampians. Known for its spectacular rocky outcrops, lush forests, mountain views, waterfalls and prolific spring wildflower displays, the Grampians are the ultimate Victorian destination for bushwalking, rock climbing, horse riding, canoeing, cycling, picnicking and fishing, and just getting back to nature. This is a beautiful mountain area and a trip here is often combined with one to the Great Ocean Road, and vice versa.

South Australia's Limestone Coast is just further west of the Great Ocean Road, starting at the Victorian/South Australian state border and stretching along the coast to Adelaide. Tour the county roads, delighting your senses with the excellent local produce, outstanding restaurants and the famous wineries of the Coonawarra region along the way. This coastline provides delightful seaside hamlets to explore and some beautiful gardens, National Parks and even an underground cave system!
