    Survivor guide: Driving Australia’s Great Ocean Road


    Widely regarded as one the world’s finest road trips, driving the Great Ocean Road is a once in a lifetime experience. Home to some of Australia’s most beautiful landscapes and iconic sights, this is a tourist paradise, which will leave you with memories to last a lifetime. If you’re planning a trip Down Under and you’re eager to make the most of your time without any risk of travel accidents, here are some tips to stay safe on the Great Ocean Road:

    • Avoiding road traffic accidents
      The Great Ocean Road is notorious for its winding, narrow roads, so take great care when driving to avoid being involved in a car crash; reduce your speed and pay attention to the road ahead of you at all times. Resist the temptation to adopt rally driver mode as soon as you spot a clear path ahead and stick to the speed limits; avoid trying to overtake, as the roads are full of bends and visibility can be poor. If you’re stuck behind a slow vehicle, don’t get frustrated, wait for them to pull into a passing place before you go round them.
    • Take your time
      The Great Ocean Road is not something that should be hurried, so take your time and plan ahead. The drive is long and slow, but there are so many amazing sights to take in on your way and plenty of interesting places to stop, take in the views and have a refreshing drink. If you’re in a hurry, this increases the risk of road accidents.
    • Slips, trips and falls
      This route is a dream for anyone who has an interest in geography, geology, wildlife or nature in general, but the terrain can be rough and heavy, surfaces can be slippery and there may be a risk of slips, trips and falls. It’s a good idea to wrap up warm in the autumn and winter months and take a waterproof jacket with you; always wear sturdy shoes, which are suitable for walking and have good grip. Don’t forget your camera!

    Travel accident compensation

    If you suffer a slip, trip or fall abroad, you’re involved in a road accident overseas or you sustain injuries as a result of a holiday accident, which was not your fault, you may be eligible for travel accident compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has expertise in handling claims for travel accidents so give our helpline a call on 0800 689 0500 and we will do everything they can to ensure that your travel claim is successful.
