Facilities along the Great Ocean Road are set to be upgraded thanks to an $18 million state government boost.
But it's not clear if facilities near the Twelve Apostles are on the list of toilets, viewing platforms, trails, beach access and car parking are included in the funds.
Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Martin Pakula, Minister for Regional Development Jaclyn Symes and Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D'Ambrosio announced $18.3 million would be spent on facilities over the next two years.
The works will also include the installation of smart nodes at key locations along the Great Ocean Road to provide free public Wi-Fi, and sensors for the efficient management of energy and waste collection.
Ms D'Ambrosio said the government was investing funds to improve the visitor experience along the Great Ocean Road to get more people out into nature and enjoying the iconic coasts, parks and scenic landscapes.
"That means better facilities and places to stay, and ultimately a better experience."
The government also announced $23.8 million towards the extension of the Great Ocean Road Coastal Trail from Fairhaven to Grey River.
It is anticipated that the extended Great Ocean Road Coastal Trail will attract an additional 50,000 people to the region in its first five years, and an extra $47 million in visitor expenditure.
"This investment will allow people to see more of this spectacular coast, create local jobs and drive the region's recovery from coronavirus," Mr Pakula said.
