A weekend getaway from Melbourne to the Great Ocean Road is one of the most popular weekend trips to do. When I was living in Melbourne, I have done this road trip several times and loved every second of it. I have done pretty much all options available. I have done a self-drive, an organized day trip as well as an organized 3-day trip. All options are great and offer something the other does not. For this post, I will show you the best self-drive itinerary, as that allows you with the most flexibility. So, this Great Ocean Road 2-day itinerary will show you all the best things to do and the best places to stop at when you do a Great Ocean Road self-drive road trip.
