Great Ocean Road Tour Highlights

Meet your local guide in the lobby of your hotel before commencing your Great Ocean Road private tour.  This full day journey will take you past windswept beaches, through ancient rainforests and along rugged coastline to the iconic Twelve Apostles.

Departing Melbourne, your first stop will be at Bells Beach – Australia’s celebrated surfing mecca and home to the world’s oldest and most prestigious surfing event, The Rip Curl Pro.  Spot mobs of lazy kangaroos basking in the morning sun and pass through seaside towns before arriving at Split-Point Lighthouse for morning tea with panoramic views from the cliff-top.

Continue along the Great Ocean Road to the seaside hamlet of Kennett River. Get up close to colourful native parrots and observe wild koalas dozing high in the scented Eucalyptus trees.

Break for lunch in the popular coastal village of Apollo Bay before continuing inland through lush verdant gullies and towering ancient forests of the Great Otway National Park.

The dramatic coastline of the Shipwreck Coast brings you to the highlight of the day – the rugged splendour of the Port Campbell National Park and the Twelve Apostles.  Stroll cliff-edge boardwalks for the perfect vantage point to see these magnificent limestone stacks rise majestically from the Southern Ocean.  Venture on to Loch Ard Gorge – one of the most dramatically beautiful beaches in Australia and discover tales of tragedy and triumph.

While at the Port Campbell National Park, you may wish to soar over the Twelves Apostles on a scenic helicopter flight. (Optional inclusion)

Conclude your Great Ocean Road Private Tour with a comfortable return journey to Melbourne through rural townships and open farmland.
