Overview

This Great Ocean Road tour is ideal for those who want to enjoy the stunning scenery of what is arguably the most beautiful coast road in the world – but have limited time. Enjoy scenic views of the city and Port Phillip Bay as we cross the Westgate Bridge, Australia’s longest bridge, learn about Victoria’s second-largest city, Geelong, and head towards the Surf Coast.

Enjoy complimentary morning tea on a beach at Torquay. Set out along the Great Ocean Road itself as your guide tells you all about the road’s history. Admire spectacular coastal scenery, with new views being revealed around every bend. There will be plenty of photo stops en route.

Visit the township of Kennett River to see koalas and colorful local birdlife, including crimson rosellas and king parrots. There will be a lunch stop in Apollo Bay before proceeding through the impressive Otway Ranges, where we stop to enjoy a guided stroll in the cool temperate rainforest. See the world-famous Port Campbell National Park and its iconic array of rock formations including the Twelve Apostles.

A further stop is possible at Gibsons Steps. Visit the Shipwreck Coast, the Loch Ard Gorge where 52 lives were lost and only 2 souls survived the wreck of the Loch Ard in 1878. Hear the legend of the Loch Ard, and explore the area with its rock formations, including the Razorback, the Dumpling Pots and the delightful Island Archway.

Have dinner on the way back to Melbourne.
