Great Ocean Road


Great Ocean Road

Your group’s journey to this once-in-a lifetime region will shape indelible memories.

Imagine announcing that your next event is happening in a bucket-list destination. The Great Ocean Road region is not just desirable, it will deliver on every benchmark for your conference or meeting. Stunning location, incredible facilities, abundance of activities options and a multitude of ultra-experienced venue operators.

Just over an hour’s drive from Melbourne (less from Avalon Airport) the region begins on the Surf Coast, with Australia’s surfi ng capital, Torquay, dripping with surf culture and meeting venues. From here, the stunning southern Victorian coastline leads on to the ample resorts of Lorne.

Make the most of the coast with beach-based leisure pursuits: learn to surf or snorkel, or walk a clifftop trail. A team tour to the iconic Twelve Apostles is mandatory. Top it off with a seafood dinner at an Apollo Bay restaurant overlooking the Southern Ocean or a moonlight trek to see glow worms light up the rainforest at Melba Gully.

Adventure calls from nearby national parks: ancient rainforests, mountain bike thrills, wildlife experiences. Beyond, a bucolic and fertile hinterland to explore. Challenge yourselves with a treetop canopy walk or a whirring downhill MTB experience in the Otways. In Warrnambool, watch for Southern Right Whales cruising by or plunge deep into ship-faring history at the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village.

Underscoring it all is a dynamic food, wine and brew ethos centred on fresh local produce, artisan skills and paddock-to-plate passion. At Yambuk, tempt your team with a tour of a buffalo cheesemaker followed by a memorable meal at a historic inn.

From fi ne restaurants to funky hole-in-the-wall cafés, this region is a culinary tour de force… and an unrivalled meeting place.
