Your adventure begins with pick-up from your central Melbourne hotel by private vehicle and a short drive to the coast to join the famous Great Ocean Road. Accompanied by your guide, set out on the ultimate road trip and enjoy a fully customized tour, stopping at iconic viewpoints or ducking off the tourist trail to check out your guide’s recommendations.
Perhaps begin with a visit to the pretty seaside town of Lorne, jump out to admire the views from Apollo Bay, then trek through the rainforest of the Great Otway National Park, keeping a look out for wild kangaroos and koalas, as well as exotic birds like the Australian king parrot, rosellas and cockatoos.
Continue to the Port Campbell National Park, where you can marvel at natural wonders like the 12 Apostles and Razorback, admire views of the dramatic Loch Ard Gorge, or stroll along the sandy beaches. Along the way, stop for lunch (own expense) at one of the many seafront restaurants, jump out to snap photos at little-known viewpoints, and hear fascinating stories about the Great Ocean Road and the Shipwreck Coast from your guide.
After a full day exploring the Great Ocean Road, return to Melbourne, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
