Explore everything the beautiful Great Ocean Road has to offer on this one-day tour that takes in the spectacular landmarks, the breath-taking scenery, and the fascinating history of the region. We’ll travel aboard a comfortable, luxury coach from Melbourne along the 200km stretch of coastal road that’s characterized by pristine beaches and mesmerizing sea views.
Child prices are available for children aged 2 - 12 years. Infants under the age of 2 years travel free on the lap of a parent.
The tour begins in Melbourne, where we’ll travel across the West Gate Bridge, enjoying the sights of the city from a different perspective. You’ll also be able to catch a glimpse of stunning Port Phillip Bay from here, too, before we move on to Torquay and the beginning of the Great Ocean Road.
As we make our way along one of the world’s most beautiful stretches of coastline, you can admire the sprawling golden surf beaches, the impressive coastal cliffs, and the numerous attractions that dot the road. We’ll pass through Lorne and stop off at Apollo Bay, where you can tuck into fish and chips (own expense), relax on the beach, or wander through the heart of the town.
You’ll also get to experience the lush rainforest just inland of the Great Ocean Road on this incredible day-long adventure. We’ll drive through the Otway National Park, where you can marvel at the ancient selection of trees and the jaw-dropping views.
Afterwards, we’ll continue on to Port Campbell National Park, home of the 12 Apostles, the Great Ocean Road’s most iconic landmark. On this part of the route, you can admire the impressive limestone stacks that make up the 12 Apostles and enjoy the sea views from the pristine beach below. As well as the 12 Apostles, you can also see Razorback, Island Arch, and a collection of other magical stacks that can be found in the area.
Finally, we’ll head to Shipwreck Coast and you can learn more about the most memorable shipwreck in Australia’s history. Don’t forget your camera here, as there are some amazing views to soak up. We’ll then make our way back to Melbourne, where the adventure comes to an end.
