OVERVIEW OF THE TOUR
Enjoy a most memorable day in one of the world’s most spectacular regions.
This Great Ocean Road experience is one you and your family will never forget. Twist and snake along one of the world's most scenic coastlines and marvel at all the incredible sights as you pass through popular seaside resort towns like charming Lorne and Anglesea.
Take a photo at the Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch, a tribute to the World War One servicemen who built the Great Ocean Road. Take the kids and enjoy a walk along one of the beautiful beaches and get some sand between your toes.
Take the time to compete in some “koala spotting” as you'll see how many koalas you can see in the eucalyptus trees. Native animals are certainly not shy in this area with an abundance of koalas, king parrots, rosellas and lorikeets. Get up close and personal with these friendly beautiful birds and look out for the famous kookaburra.
After lunch at Apollo Bay, embark upon a guided bush walk through the Great Otway National Park. In this very rare, ancient and cool temperate rainforest you will feel dwarfed as you stroll past some of the tallest trees in the world.
Our next stop is Loch Ard Gorge, where you'll find yourself surrounded by towering limestone cliffs. Here you can take another walk along the beach, view the Archway, the Razorback and Dumpling Pots. This area is steeped in history and you will hear stories of romance and heartbreak as our guides re-tell the tale of Australia’s most famous shipwreck.
Finally, the highlight of the trip is a stop at the incredible 12 Apostles. Take a wander along coastal paths for astonishing views over the ocean as it crashes against the limestone stacks and cliffs. Grab plenty of photos before you jump back on the bus for a journey through rural Victoria back to Melbourne. We'll make a stop in Colac where you can have a quick dinner (own cost).
