One the Australia’s most exciting and ethereally stunning coastlines, the Great Ocean Road is a destination to be savoured. Make the most of your time travelling Australia’s most beautiful coastal drive by taking a leisurely pace with an overnight stay in a small coastal township during this two-day journey.

Day One: Melbourne - Port Campbell

Meet your local guide at 08:00am at your nominated Melbourne hotel then commence your journey tracing the length of one of the world’s most spectacular coastal touring routes, the Great Ocean Road.

From Torquay to Apollo Bay the road hugs forested coastal cliffs as it twists and turns past white sand surf beaches and through picturesque seaside villages. The hinterland of towering gum trees provides the perfect habitat for koalas, kangaroos, and colourful native parrots. Indulge in a lunch of locally sourced seafood in the quaint coastal township of Apollo Bay

The road then turns inland through lush green, semi-temperate rainforest featuring ferny gullies, moss-covered timber, and freshwater cascades. Enjoy a rainforest walk in the Great Otway National Park before arriving at the scenic highlight of the Great Ocean Road – the iconic Twelve Apostles. Battered by the fierce waves of the Southern Ocean, the dramatic coastline has been relentlessly carved into limestone towers, gorges, and caves. Stroll cliff-edge boardwalks for the perfect vantage point with the option to view from above with a short helicopter flight.

Check into your accommodation for the evening and freshen up prior to dinner. Your guide can transfer you to a relaxed dinner (own expense) at a classic Australian pub where you may meet some of the locals and sample the regions produce.

Day Two: Port Campbell - Melbourne

Following a comfortable nights sleep, you may wish to wake early to catch sunrise at the Twelve Apostles or perhaps a morning at leisure before exploring some of the less visited wonders of the Port Campbell National Park such as London Bridge, The Grotto and Bay of Islands.

Visit some of the region’s finest farm-gates and producers: try hand-made cheeses at Schulz Organic Dairy, aged whiskey at the Timboon Railway Shed Distillery and sample locally churned delights at the Timboon Fine Ice Creamery then relax on the journey back to Melbourne through open farmland and rural townships.

Conclude in Melbourne at approx. 05:00pm.
