Great Ocean Road Day Tour - Departs Melbourne

Join us on a relaxed and social small group tour as we leave the busy Melbourne streets and explore the Great Ocean Road‘s rainforests, beaches and breathtaking views!

Tour Description

We head out of Melbourne early, passing through Anglesea before stopping for morning tea at a nearby location. We follow the twists and turns of the breathtaking Great Ocean Road enjoying spectacular coastal photo opportunities. We will stop off to see some cuddly koalas in the wild, before travelling to Apollo Bay for lunch (own expense).

Next we explore the Otway National Park, taking a walk through an ancient temperate rainforest, admiring some of the world’s tallest trees. We head through rolling hills towards Port Campbell National Park and the awe-inspiring 12 Apostles. Listen to tragic tales about 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. After this breathtaking day, relax as we head back to Melbourne, stopping in the township of Colac for dinner (dinner at own expense)

Great Ocean Experience

Excellent from start to finish. Tara was an awesome tour guide who gave us some amazing insight into Melbourne and the great ocean road. Seeing Kaolas up close on personal was a cool experience. Lunch was a nice cooked lunch in a local town. Great guide, great sights.

Excelente. Muy recomendable

The places visited and the guide Peter were the best of the tour..... The views are amazing.. The food can be better, but it is okay..The small group (23) let that the stops took the time scheduled. The transportation was clean. Congratulations to Autopia Tours and booking for recommending

Hi Estelle, and thank you for taking the time to write us a review. The Great Ocean Road is indeed a long road with full of attractions along the way. The day is approximately 12 hours. We do offer 2 and 3 day tours for the ones who have more time to breath in the atmosphere. Thanks again, and safe travels!

A great bargain for its price. Friendly tour guide. Do keep in mind it is like a hop out hop in tour though.

Hi Julia, thank you for your review! We are glad our tour guide showed you good time! The tour is a full day tour, leaving early from Melbourne and returning at around 8pm. You do of course get out the bus to see the sights and attractions on the way :)
