Great tour. Cameron was exceptional, not only as our tour guide, but also as our cook.
We had the best time ever !
When booking we were a bit anxious about the shared accommodation but this was totally fine, very clean and the group that we were with was amazing. Our guide Cameron was told us a lot about the area and some history which was fun, and he cooked delicious meals. There were lots of snacks on board.
We could not have asked for a better trip.
The only let down was the second night, although its a great place to stay we all were very cold and i think this would have worked better in Summer than in winter time. It was old and a bit grotty so perhaps the second night could have been better in an accommodation like our first night.
But apart from that we would definitely recommend this tour !!!!!
In a word, AMAZING! By far the best experience we had whilst in Australia. Pete was our driver, he was so informative and made the whole experience a complete adventure. I really cannot express how good this was. Very tiring due to the long days but an absolute jem of a trip and well worth the fatigue that followed. I could have slept for a week afterwards! Just fabulous! Met some great people too which was a bonus!
Just awesome! Ngaire was an incredible guide and a really attentive and accommodating considering the rather large group on who happened to be on our bus. She's such a sweetheart and a great storyteller. You could tell she was passionate about the places that we went to and I found her insight on ecotourism in Australia very interesting. She also had great music taste and took all of our suggestions for music, which is a huge plus when you're on a bus for THREE DAYS! Both Ngaire and Matt the guide for the other bus were very knowledgeable and just cool people to hang out with and have a beer with in the evenings.
Wonderful trip. I arranged to meet the tour in Anglesea and the tour bus arrived at the location agreed upon. Our tour guide was Cameron. He was very knowledgeable and provided us with plenty of history about the Great Ocean Road. We all enjoyed the times we were able to stop to view the koalas in the trees along the side of the road. There are so many wonderful beaches, coves, park areas along the route which follows the coastline of Australia. The hostel in Port Colbourne lodge was very well run and looked after. We had a wonderful breakfast the next day before heading off to continue the trip. Thru the second day we headed up into the Grampian Mountain area and continued to enjoy the scenery, with plenty of time to walk thru the rocky terrain to view some stunning scenery. We stayed that night in a private camp where our tour guide cooked dinner with the assistance from our group. Next day we were up early to continue the tour. After lunch a few of us were taken to a bus stop in order to catch the bus to Adelaide.
Our tour guide was terrific and we all had a wonderful experience full of beautiful scenery, swimming in the coves. So great to be able to see the koalas and kangaroos in their natural surroundings. Meals and accommodation were great. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone who loves the outdoors, walking, swimming, hostels and the chance to meet wonderful people.
Great small group trip with fun set of people and excellent guide Matt. Fantastic scenery and plenty to do, never felt we were on the bus too long. Very nice hostel for our first night and the wilderness lodge was an amazing experience. Some super walks just wish it was longer.
It was an amazing trip! Even though it was raining we could do many activities and visit many places.
I strongly recommend to have this experience!
Wonderful trip. I am exhausted, but that is a good thing. Really nice accommodations. Saw plenty of wildlife and beautiful scenery :
I had an amazing time on this tour loved everything about it! I would highly recommend.
This tour was organized by a local tour company and our fantastic tour guide was Matt. I think for this price the tour was great and left me and my 23 companions with unforgettable memories. The shared accomodations were good first day in a hostel at the Great Ocean Road, 12 of us shared a room second night in the Grampians where 5 of us shared one nicely climatized room, and some of us even booked a night in the tent 20 cheaper, this option is not available via Viator. Just be prepared for some longer waiting times in front of the showers in the hostels but all accomodations are clean and comfortable don't forget your ear plugs!.
The food was also good- with exception of the junk food we got at our first stop at the Cape Otway Lighthouse- sausage solala, bland potatoe salads you can get better stuff in the supermarket..., and bread. They should make sure that there is something better left for us after all the one-day tours were there. The other lunches were much better you eat your own sandwiches and lots of veggies if you like, and the dinners were fantastic. First night pizza with the sunset at the beach, second night BBQ with tasty kangaroo meat in the Grampians.
Our tour guide Matt was very knowledgeable and be prepared for his jokes! No one will be spared! He gave us enough time at all stops unfortunately the couple who booked the helicopter flight around the 12 Apostels could not not take their flight since we were delayed due some bush fire detours and the long lines t the check-in- but they got refunded. I took more than 150 pictures...My personal highlight was our Mexican-standoff with the dog when we left the accomodation on the last day. Dog vs. Matt's bus: you will laugh a lot and not forget this :- Altogether a great and unforgettable trip- thanks Matt!!!
this was the best thing we did in Australia. Jennar was our tour guide and he was fantastic!
It was AWSOME!
I was a solo travelled, but we became really good friends, really fast!
And the guide, was so nice, he was a part of the group, and was really open mined for new ideas!
Friendly guides, amazing sights to see, all very well planned and organised.
The Tour was great! Met some really nice People and also Matt our Guide was really nice! Had a lot of fun at this Trip :) i would defenitively do it again!! Saw so many different beautiful faces of Australia in three days and Matt has a really good knowledge! Thank You all for that Great Trip :)
Definitely worth it. Met a great group of people which added to the experience. Lots of stopping at scenic sites to break up the driving.
What an amazing three days with Bunyip Tours! Our small group became very tight-knit and our guide, Matt, was FANTASTIC. I had done a few larger tours in Melbourne alone with other tour companies (e.g. kayak tour of Melbourne, chocolate tour, Yarra Valley Wine Tour, Phillip Island, etc.) and had an okay experience; however, it was very difficult to make friends on the day tours I went on and very little individual attention was given to me and my fellow travelers by our guides on those trips. The Great Ocean Road Bunyip Tour was the last tour I did in Melbourne before heading to Sydney and I feared that once again it would be a very isolating experience. I was so wrong! I sat in the front seat with our guide (and new friend) Matt and learned that he had studied ecology in university and worked for many years as a park ranger. I study environmental studies at an American college and was excited to learn everything from an expert. Not only did Matt make the tour enjoyable with his humor and kindness, but also a wonderful learning experience. Matt carried mammal and bird guides for his passengers to read up on Aussie wildlife. He also shared information on Australian politics, history, and culture. I had spent a semester on an exchange program with James Cook University in Cairns, and feel like I learned more about Australia in those three days than my semester at uni! Additionally, Matt gave personalized attention to every passenger on the trip. I was impressed that he memorized everyone's name so quickly, and got along so well with everyone!
Regarding the trip itself, the Great Ocean Road and the Grampians are BEAUTIFUL! We also saw koalas, emus, kangaroos, and other animals in the wild. The hostels we stayed at the Great Ocean Road and the Grampians were fantastic. They were in great locations and were super clean! I actually couldn't believe they were hostels, because of how nice the facilities were. What a wonderful trip! Highly recommend doing it!
