What to Expect

After being picked up from your CBD accommodation you'll explore the world-famous Great Ocean Road on this full-day tour with free wi-fi and audio in many languages to ensure you do not miss a thing. 


The first stop of the day is Torquay Surf Beach. Experience your first look and feel of the iconic beaches and coastal views. You will also be in clear seeing distance of the world-famous Bells Surfing Beach. Get a taste of what is to come by taking coastal photos and smelling the fresh seaside air.


Snap a selfie at the Great Ocean Road sign and send it to your friends, before witnessing koalas and colourful parrots in their natural environment, on a guided tour. 


By now, it's time for a stop at the coastal town of Apollo Bay where you can purchase your lunch (not included) from the many restaurants and cafes on offer. You can also walk around the town or even take a swim at the beach if the weather suits you.  


Burn off your lunch with a guided rainforest walk where you will see some of the tallest trees in the world. You will also take in the wonderful, fresh smells the trees have to offer.


Next up is the highlight for many on this epic journey – the 12 Apostles. Head to the Gibson Steps (tide and wind permitting), where you will be able to see some of the 12 Apostles from sea level on the beach. You will feel like you can reach out and touch them. Take your time to view this world-renowned landmark, it's an awesome sight with fantastic photo opportunities. See for yourself why these limestone beauties are known all around the world.


Loch Ard Gorge is the final touring stop but many say it is the best. You'll get to witness first-hand this magnificent formation of rocks and rolling sea, with ground-level viewing that will excite you with the natural glories it possesses.


On the return trip to Melbourne, the tour makes a stop in Colac, where you can purchase dinner (not included) from the many restaurants and cafes on offer. After dinner, we return you to your CBD hotel.
