Small-Group Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles Full-Day Tour from Melbourne
Head out of Melbourne for a full-day small-group tour of the Great Ocean Road. See some of Southern Australia’s most beautiful beaches as you travel to Kennett River, where you can spot wild koalas. Stop in Apollo Bay for lunch, then take a dip in the Southern Ocean. Stroll in the rainforest at Great Otway National Park and travel to Port Campbell National Park and the Twelve Apostles. You’ll also cruise down the Shipwreck Coast to Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge and the fishing village of Port Campbell.
What to Expect
Experience one of the world’s most spectacular coastal drives! After leaving Melbourne early morning and passing the beautiful beach town of Torquay it is time for some morning tea at Southern Australia’s beautiful beaches. Twist and wind along the spectacular Great Ocean Road enjoying awesome coastal photo opportunities. See the lighthouse made famous from the TV series ‘Round the Twist.’ Along the way stop at Kennett River to see cuddly koalas in the wild.

Travel to Apollo Bay for lunch (included), and if weather permits why not cool off in the magnificent Southern Ocean? After lunch stretch those legs whilst exploring an ancient rainforest, and admire some of the world’s tallest trees in the Otway National Park. Travel through rolling hills toward Port Campbell National Park and the breathtaking 12 Apostles. Learn about the tragic tales of the Shipwreck coast and view remarkable rock formations at Loch Ard Gorge. Check out the fallen London Bridge and the quaint fishing village of Port Campbell.

Sit back, relax and reflect on an action packed day full of nature walks, wildlife, surf beaches, incredible rock formations and spectacular coastal views heading towards Melbourne. Stop in the township of Colac for dinner (own expense).
