Great Ocean Road Experience 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 Torquay 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 (or Gibson Steps) 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)

enough time on your own to enjoy the view

I like that the tour was so organized but without compromising the tourists' free time to enjoy the views and sceneries.

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

Great experience

Great experience with Autopia - one day trip to great ocean road. Mom and I, we were happy and had a wonderful time. Darren, our guide was so nice and polite. Also we could not forget his koala as well. It's such a good day and good memory 😊
