We rented a car, and drove the Great Ocean Road and loved it. We saw kangaroos, koalas, and parakeets. The beaches are incredible and the kids loved it. However, we had just been to Pacific Coast Highway in California so we noticed many similarities (with the exception of the animals). We did not continue to the Twelve Apostles (too far for us) but sounds very cool.
