This will be an adventure to tell your friends and family about. Chartes like Calypso Star and Adventure Bay Charters run one-day great white shark tours off Port Lincoln. For this activity, scuba experience is not necessary and if you’re looking for something memorable but not that extreme, there is also a possibility to swim in ocean with giant whale sharks.

The road along the ocean includes surf spots of Torquay, Bells Beach, the many kangaroos, Lorne, and many spectacular rock formations of the 12 Apostles. It is possible to drive Ocean Road all in 3 hours non-stop but we recommend taking at least 2-3 days to make stops and visit many interesting sights.
