Great Ocean Road adventure day tour

Leaving the city we head over the magnificent Westgate Bridge. This bridge offers awesome views of the Docklands, as well as a panoramic view of the city skyline.

 

On our way to the Great Ocean Road we drive through the western suburbs of Melbourne followed by fertile agricultural plains. We pass Geelong, an industrial centre and Victoria’s second largest city, before we join the coast near Anglesea, a popular holiday destination. The local golf course is home to wild Kangaroos which we will be able to view at close range.

 

Continuing on to the resort town of Lorne, the road, known as the world’s most inspiring coastal drive, clings to the coastline, twisting and turning, every bend revealing a sight more spectacular than the last. After a short morning tea break, we continue past breathtaking ocean vistas to Kennett River. In this area, high in the trees is a colony of wild koalas. See these creatures in their natural habitat, lazily lounging in the trees and looking after their young, oblivious to their human onlookers.

 

A sumptuous lunch is served at Apollo Bay before we continue our trip along the Shipwreck Coast area of the Great Ocean Road. We follow its winding trail through the lush temperate rainforests of the Otway Ranges, where centuries-old eucalypts reach 100 metres or more into the sky.

 

Passing through lush sheep and cattle county, we finally reach our goal - the mighty Twelve Apostles, world-recognised icons of the Great Ocean Road. These giant rock stacks soar from the swirling waters of the Southern Ocean and are a central feature of the spectacular Port Campbell National Park. The dramatic and imposing limestone cliffs that are the backdrop to the Apostles tower up to 70 metres, while the tallest of the rock stacks is around 45 metres high.

 

Venturing further west we arrive at Loch Ard Gorge. Your first view will be of towering cliffs, sparkling blue-green sea and a small, sandy beach. It’s hard to imagine that the drama of one of Victoria’s most tragic shipwrecks was played out at this very spot more than 120 years ago, giving its name to the gorge. Our guide will tell you the story and have you totally engrossed and mesmerised.

 

Time permitting we get to see another one of the amazing rock formations that dot this coastline before heading inland through dairy farm country on the way back to the city.

About Our Guides

Your very knowledgeable and friendly guide is all part of the experience with us. Our guides are highly trained in the art of "localism". Our tours tend to be a blend of both unique and iconic experiences. Our guides will always show our guests the things that they have heard about or read about, but as our guides are long standing locals to the area that they guide in, they will often share with you their special places. Places that they may have grown up in or shared a special experience. These will often be areas where there is no one else around and you can be guarenteed to have that "once in a lifetime experience". Many of our guides are specialists in their fields. Naturalists, botanists, conservationlists, experts in native flora and fauna, Aboriginal art experts. In fact one of our guides based in Cairns lived in the Daintree Rainforest for some time and shares all of these experiences with his guests. With our guides you are guarenteed to have a genuine 5 Star Experience
