Itinerary

  • You will be picked up from Melbourne Central Business District by an air-conditioned small bus between 7am to 8am. Your day will begin with a trip to a surf beach where you can relax and watch the surfers, while enjoying a complimentary tea.

    The next stop in the tour will be the Memorial Arch, which is a tribute to the World War One servicemen who built the Great Ocean Road. After the Memorial Arch you will visit another beach where you can enjoy the feel of the sand under your feet and the wind in your hair.

    In the visit to the Lorne and Anglesea, soak in the spectacular scenic beauty of the coastal landscape and see kangaroos and other wildlife as well. The spectacular view of the sea, the coasts and the dramatic limestone cliffs makes the Great Ocean Road an absolute must-visit.

    Indulge in wildlife spotting and look out for koalas hanging in the wild and many beautiful birds like the kookaburra, lorikeets and parrots.

    The next stop is the Otway’s rainforest (also known as Mait’s Rest), where you can enjoy spectacular scenic beauty along with the opportunity to see some of the tallest trees in the world, ancient plant life and lush ferns during a guided bush walk.

    Enjoy the majestic sight of the massive limestone stacks rising from the Southern Ocean in your next halt at the 12 Apostles on Victoria’s rugged coastline. At the beautiful Loch Ard Gorge (your next stop), enjoy a stroll along the beach, amidst the towering limestone cliffs. The Loch Ard Gorge has been named after the clipper ship Loch Ard. Hear from your guide, the legendary tale of Australia’s most famous shipwreck. 

    After the tour, you will be dropped off in Melbourne Central Business District at approximately 8:30pm.
