    Day 1:

    On the first day, the Great Ocean Road tour will begin from Port Campbell. En route, you will be visiting some famous tourist destinations like:

    • The 12 Apostles- At the mighty 12 Apostles on Victoria’s rugged coastline, soak in the majestic sight of the massive limestone stacks rising from the Southern Ocean. 
    • Loch Ard Gorge: The beautiful Loch Ard Gorge, named after the clipper ship Loch Ard. The Loch Ard Gorge is another prominent tourist hotspot in Victoria. A trip along the Great Ocean road is incomplete without a visit to the Loch Ard Gorge. And while exploring the place, get to hear the legendary tale of Australia’s most famous shipwreck from your guide.
    • Otway Ranges and Rainforest: In the Otway’s rainforest (popularly known as Mait’s Rest), you can enjoy awe-inspiring views of some of the tallest trees in the world, ancient plant life, lush ferns and majestic scenic beauty. 

    There will be other stops where you can admire the sheer beauty of the picturesque Australian landscape and the abundance of local fauna and wildlife.

    Accommodation:

    After the Great Ocean road tour, you will be staying overnight at Beacon Resort in Bellarine Peninsula. You can either stay in a dormitory or in a private accommodation. (The shared accommodation is dorm style with shared bathrooms while the private rooms are Motel style rooms with bathrooms and kitchenettes).

    Day 2:

    The second day of the trip will begin with an early morning ferry ride across Port Phillip Bay from Queenscliff to Sorrento on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula. You will be visiting the seaside town of Portsea with its famous coloured bathing boxes. Admire the panoramic views from Murray's lookout before heading towards Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park.

    At the Moonlit Sanctuary, you can hand-feed kangaroos, interact with the friendly locals, take pictures with the Koalas (optional) and learn more about the conservation of the native animals.

    The magnificent headland of The Nobbies is an ecotourism destination on the western tip of Phillip Island, where the views seem to stretch forever. One and a half kilometres offshore from The Nobbies are Seal Rocks, home to Australia’s largest Australian fur seal colony.

    The next stop will be the Summerland beach, home to Victoria’s largest colony of Little Penguins. Every night, the world’s smallest penguins – toddle ashore to the safety of their burrows after their daily fishing expedition. The sunset Penguin Parade is a major tourist attraction and a must-visit. This experience is sure to be the highlight of your visit.

    The tour will end at the same place as the starting point.
