Great Ocean Road - driving it (there's four of us hired a 4x4) between the first two tests to reach Adelaide. Anyone done it before? Any tips / advice / info.
Read up loads on it, sounds quality, but trust first-hand experience better than internet guides.

Cheers

Did it between the 5th test and ODI series in 2011, it's well worth doing! We stayed in YHA hostels all the way along the route and they were absolutely fine. Best advice I can give is not to rush through and give yourself time to see the nearby attractions (lighthouses, waterfalls, rainforest etc) and if you can, try to time it so you're at the 12 Apostles for sunset - that in itself is worth the journey!

Hi poolymoose also driving to Adelaide after Brisbane test after driving from Perth to Brisbane.. I have driven GOR a few times on motorbike and rate as one of the best drives in the world. You will have no problems with accommodation as plenty of towns along the way. If you get a chance go up into the Ottway ranges, really beautiful scenery and not far off the beaten track. Plenty of good coffee shops along the way as well as pubs.

Enjoy your experience best wishes Stoney
