This stretch of Victoria's coast - dubbed the Great Ocean Road - is known for its long empty beaches and crashing surf. It's holiday central for vacationing Melburnites in December and January, when thousands of visitors swell the local population, booking laidback holiday homes for the summer season.
Local towns come alive in summer, with bustling cafes, boutiques and bars. Away from the coast, the surrounding mountains hide national parks filled with bushwalks, rainforest, waterfalls and wildlife.

Doing what: Great Ocean Road Small Group Eco Tour from Melbourne
It was an excellent trip! We thought it would be a very tiring day but even if it went for 13h it was a great experience! The 12 Apostles is definitely one of the main spots to visit at the G.Ocean Road, but there are a lot of other places that are worth seeing such as the shipwreck coast, bells beach, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge and the walk in the rainforest, you wont miss them with this tour. The tour guide, Dave, made the day different! He was really good :) I will definitely do this tour again!!

Doing what: 2-Day Combo: Melbourne City Tour, Yarra River Cruise and Great Ocean Road Day Trip
This trip was all I expected and more, The trip on the Yarra was lovely and the bus trip around Melbourne and up to the Ranges was great and the bus drives was very informative I know we couldn't have done this by driving ourselves.
The great ocean road trip was again over what I expected and again a very informative driver.
