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)

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

Spectacular

The whole trip, the view, the spots and the captain make this an experience to remember. The Van was full of JW that came to the convention in Melbourne, and they were also very friendly. As a summary...took much fan and amazed by the beauty of Australia

Hi Benajmin, and thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you felt that the time was not enough to take in the beautiful scenery. We also have 2 and 3 day Great Ocean Road tours for the travellers with more time to take in the atmosphere and also visit the beautiful Grampians National Park. :)
