Your day begins with a sleep-in and pick-up from selected CBD hotels between 9 and 11am depending on the season. The tour heads west from the city towards Geelong and your first stop of the day – an exclusive visit to Narana Indigenous Cultural Centre. Here you’ll enjoy a didgeridoo performance and the opportunity to spot emus and kangaroos in the grounds. No other Melbourne tour to the Great Ocean Road offers a stop here. You’ll also enjoy a hearty café-style lunch.
Then it’s time to experience the breathtaking beauty of the Great Ocean Road. Every bend reveals a spectacular new vista. See golden beaches, dramatic windswept coastline and the lush swathes of rainforest that form the Great Otway National Park. There are regular stops and incredible photo opportunities throughout the drive. At Memorial Arch you’ll learn the emotive story behind of the construction of the road by returned WWI service personnel.
You’ll drive through the scenic towns of Lorne and Apollo Bay, and enjoy a walk through the rainforest at Maits Rest. There’s even the possibility of seeing koalas in the wild!
The tour continues to work its way west — with stops at Loch Ard Gorge and Gibson Steps, where you’ll have the opportunity to walk on the beach and look up at the soaring coastal cliffs. Finally, you’ll arrive at Port Campbell National Park — home to the world-famous limestone sea stacks known as the 12 Apostles. Formed over millions of years by the pounding ocean, the opportunity to view these monoliths at sunset is an exquisite one. You’ll need a fully charged camera, so come prepared!
