What You Can Expect

Great Ocean Road Small-Group Eco-Tour from Melbourne

Great Ocean Road Small-Group Eco-Tour from Melbourne

Spend a full day exploring the natural wonders of Australia’s Great Ocean Road. Your guide will pick you up at your Melbourne hotel in a comfortable, high-tech minicoach, where you’ll join just a handful of other passengers for personalized, small-group experience. Onboard narration is available in 13 different languages through specially equipped iPods.

The Great Ocean Road officially begins at Torquay, a famous surf town of gorgeous, sandy beaches. Stop at a beachside location before continuing through several charming port towns before stopping at Kennett River. This lovely eco-park is one of the best spots in Victoria to observe wild koalas.

Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant in the scenic town of Apollo Bay, and have a swim along its crescent- shaped beach. Next up, wander among the greenery of Great Otway National Park, which boasts ancient trees among a semitropical forest.

The coastal landscape comes to a dramatic climax at Port Campbell National Park, where you can gawk at the Twelve Apostles — a grouping of massive limestone pillars that rise up out of the ocean. With an optional upgrade, you can take a 15-minute helicopter ride for unforgettable aerial views of this jaw-dropping coastline.

The rugged cliffs along the Great Ocean Road once made for perilous navigation for vessels sailing into the port of Melbourne. Hear the tragic tales of Australia’s ‘Shipwreck Coast’ and visit Loch Ard Gorge, the postcard-worthy site of a notorious 1878 shipwreck.

Finally, view the Gibson's Steps for a dramatic example of the power of erosion. Take in the incredible cliff line and offshore stacks before continuing on your drive back to Melbourne.

Stop for dinner (own expense) on the approximately 3-hour return drive to Melbourne. Relax on the ride back to your hotel, or share snapshots of the day with family and friends using the coach’s free onboard Wi-Fi.

The tour was absolutely great! Leah did a fabulous job. Lots to see Kolas,kookabura, other colourful birds, not to mention the Great Apostles themselves. Helicopter ride was well worth it as it adds perspective to the massiveness of the apostles. I went early ahead of a tour and was glad I did.

An amazing trip, it and #39;s more than what I expected. The trip is relaxing, comfortable and not boring at all. Even though it and #39;s a long day trip (maybe feel tired) but you will find it worth. Thank you very much for our tour guide - Leah, she is really the best tour guide. She is very helpful, responsible and kind. Thank you Leah!

A fun, beautiful and scenic road trip. The tour guide driver made few stops at different point along the ocean road for us to take snapshots. The journey was long but he made it fun and interesting by telling stories and about the great ocean road. The 12 apostles was spectacular! It was really a totally different feeling and expereince between looking at pictures and when you are physically there yourself. Great experience! highly recommended.
