Itinerary

You will be picked up in a coach from your hotel in Melbourne to start off the Great Ocean Road tour.

Accompanied by a guide, drive through the port town of Geelong and reach the Great Ocean Road that runs along the scenic coastline of southwest Victoria. Drive through the Great Otway National Park and be treated to awe-inspiring views of sandy beaches and plunging cliffs on the edge of the sea. Pass through the seaside villages of Lorne, Apollo Bay and Port Campbell.

Moving on, the coach will then halt for some wildlife spotting next and lunch (direct payable) to the lovely Kennett River. Here, you’re likely to spot koalas and native birds in their natural surroundings.

Continue your tour to the lush green Otway Rainforest, known for growing some of the tallest eucalyptus trees in Australia. Next, you will enjoy a leisurely stroll along the historic beach of Loch Ard Gorge, where you will see the sea-carved Elephant Rock and discover the history of the Shipwreck Coast.

Your last stop in this Great Ocean Road tour is the Twelve Apostles, the breathtaking rock formation which has become a natural icon. Step down to the beach at the Gibson Steps and be dwarfed by these enormous rock stacks. You will be right in time to see the Twelve Apostles against the setting sun.
