Why Travelers Choose This Tour

A custom itinerary and optional helicopter flight make this tour ideal for travelers who want to see it all.

After morning pickup from your Melbourne hotel, leave the city via West Gate Bridge, taking in views of the port and city center.

Continue along the highway to the Great Ocean Road where you can see long deserted beaches and roaring surf on the coast, and national parks that shelter wildlife. Stop for photo ops at Bells Beach, a favorite among surfers. Then drive to Split Point Lighthouse, where the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean meet.

Purchase lunch in the small town of Apollo Bay, where the restaurants are known for fresh fish and seafood. Afterward, take an easy walk in a rain forest that has towering arborescent ferns and eucalyptus trees that can be 300 years old.

In the afternoon, arrive at the Twelve Apostles, the hulking rock formations that are one of the highlights of the drive. Walk down the Gibson Steps to access the beach at the foot of the Apostles for another perspective on the natural monuments. You can take a short scenic helicopter flight over the Twelve Apostles (additional cost) if you wish.

Your tour ends with drop-off at you hotel in Melbourne in the evening.

We are lucky to have Micheal as our guide, he is a very good driver, know the Great Ocean Road in and out, stop at all the spectacular view points all throughout our 12 hrs trip. He is a Russian Immigrant who spoke perfect English , highly educated, like to write poem and compose song , he had his own CD in Russian, and share with us all along the trip. Overall its a wonderful trip highly recommended. Will post a photo of him with my wife Grace underneath.

Driver did an excellent job of getting us to different sites but was very weak on commentary and History of visited areas.
Paid a lot for this tour and expected an experience Guide.

Booked this tour 6 months ago. Was so excited because of the reviews we read. Turns out this company subbed out our tour and we spent 12 hours with a tour guide who knew NOTHING!! and English was his second language. I would call him a driver but not an expert travel guide. We had to use up our data plan on our phone just to google information about the areas we were visiting. Plenty of companies do this tour. I'd look around before booking with bilby travel
