1st time travelling, off to Great Ocean Road any tips?

First time travellers, 2 parents,14 and 16 year old kids. Planning to travel and see the Great Ocean Road, we have 3 weeks to do the trip. This will be a summer trip due to work commitments. We have done some small trips but nothing like this. We need some help and advise on pre trip checks, must see sites and which way to go; coast way or in land way. Even go down coast road and back inland way. We live in Ipswich Queensland. Vehicle is a 2012 4wd Navara and van is a 19 foot royal flair van.

Any info will be greatly helpful.
Regards Graham

There are some good sites where you can go but I like the most is Lorne. I love that little town with its street Cafes and lovely beach. There is one point that if you are there at dusk you will see Penguins waddling up the beach, but you would need to make enquiries to where that is. I just stumbled across it by sheer luck.
