Self-driving holidays on The Great Ocean Road is a fantastic experience. Stock up some tips before hitting the road, it gets one to enjoy the best out of this road trip.
What to see and do?
Believe me, if you have been surfing online for The Great Ocean Road, your brain will be overwhelmed with information, indecisive on which itinerary to go with. Every image is inviting. Ask yourself, are you there for the coastline nature or inland nature? Do seeing and photographing alone sufficient? Or you can't leave without the up close and personal and love to indulged in hiking, camping and surfing. These questions help one to decide what to expect from this road trip. The attractions are almost endless, not a surprise that some visitors consider staying for a week on The Great Ocean Road! Do a bit of homework, mark the points on your GPS, these help to get what you dream for a self-drive holiday.
Who come(s) along?
It would be great if you can bring someone along to share the picturesque scenery. In my case, I took along my fiancee for our pre-wed honeymoon :)
The stunning coastline may not get your attention to be on the wheel all the time :) Not only that, you need some rest after a couple of hours concentrating on the winding road. Even if not, it is still a worth drive to be done alone.
Never underestimate the power of nature. Look out for the weather conditions on the day e.g. blazing sun, cloudy blue sky or thunderstorm especially for surfers. Better be safe than sorry.
Ensure your best friend (vehicle) for the road is on tip top condition. Tyre with sufficient thread and some emergency tools. Good to start with a full tank of fuel. At some part on The Great Ocean (B100), one may stand beyond the sight of civilization, so grab an emergency number with you. If you rent a vehicle, the emergency contact is usually found on sticker somewhere inside.
What to bring?
Load enough drinking water, snacks, food, beverages instead of wasting tome searching for convenience stores, I guess this is not convenience anymore literally. This help to keep your body fueled on the go. For bush walking/beach strolling, get a good pair of sneakers and appropriate outfits in accordance to the season. Hand phone, GPS and a camera!
Rest well before the day.
Have a safe and a wonderful journey on The Great Ocean Road!
