Featured guest review

'Our Great Ocean Road sunset tour was unbelievably good! All the places we stopped at had breathtaking views! There's a particularly fun stop where you get to feed parrots, and if you're lucky, spot some koalas in the wild. The last stop — Loch Ard Gorge and the 12 Apostles — is beautiful. Way better than anything I imagined. Recommended 100%.' - AnaMedMX (via TripAdvisor)

    Adam was our guide on this 12 hour trip with lunch and afternoon tea, koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, Tasmania devils, eagles and of course penguins. Plus a working farm with cow milking, sheep shearing and stock whip cracking. We really appreciated the professionalism and enthusiasm. Adam went way above and beyond. Thank you!

    Had such an amazing day. We saw koalas wombats and even a Tasmanian devil. We also went to farm house where we could see how the settlers used to live. Very interesting.

    Fiona was our guide/driver for the day and did an exceptional job. It is a 2 hour drive from Melbourne. We stopped at Moonlit Wildlife Sanctuary, and a working farm on Phillip Island where we saw a sheep shearing demonstration. We also had a brief stop in Currie. The Penguin Parade was great and we had VIP tickets so we got a personal tour with the ranger and a private viewing box with binoculars. Fiona did a great job driving, and got us all back to our hotels safely.

    Wonderful day, picturesque landscape and a fantastic driver/guide Brett. I really recommend to do it. The driver was on time and he explained a lot of little tips and stories about the scenery. We had time to see and take pictures along the way. We had a nice lunch and time to have ice cream or coffee in Apollo Bay. We had a stunning day.

  • Mary – Via TripAdvisor

    The Great Ocean Road was beautiful, but there were rain showers and strong cold wind gusts. The lunch was passable and the tea break was nice. The tour would have been better if there was more commentary along the way instead of just when we arrived at each destination. After lunch, the free time to shop was very nice.

    This tour was unbelievably good! Our driver/guide was super nice and friendly. All the places we stopped at had breath-taking views, and the food that's included is delicious! There's a particularly fun stop where you get to feed parrots, and if you're lucky, spot some koalas in the wild. The last stop, Loch Ard Gorge and the 12 Apostles, is beautiful.

Great Ocean Road Sunset Tour

This superb Great Ocean Road Sunset Tour from Melbourne provides an experience every visitor to the Victorian capital longs for — the chance to see the magnificent 12 Apostles sea stacks bathed in the soft light of sunset. This truly is an iconic day out!

Your day begins with a sleep-in and pick-up from selected CBD hotels between 9 and 11am (depending on the season). Before too long you’ll find yourself immersed in 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 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!

 

Phillip Island Penguins, Wildlife Park and Farm Tour

This Phillip Island Penguins, Wildlife Park and Farm Tour from Melbourne is a friendly and relaxed way to enjoy the spectacle of Phillip Island’s famous little penguins returning home at dusk after a day of fishing in Bass Strait, and get up close and personal with regional Victoria’s countryside and native wildlife as part of the deal!

Selected CBD hotel pick-ups completed, you’ll set off for Phillip Island in air conditioned comfort. You’ll enjoy the wonderfully scenic drive southeast towards the Mornington Peninsula, and your knowledgeable local guide will point out places of interest along the way. You’ll learn lots of interesting historical facts about the small rural towns you pass through.

Your first stop on this Phillip Island Penguins, Wildlife Park and Farm Tour from Melbourne is the famous Moonlit Wildlife Sanctuary — home to all manner of furry and feathered native Australian wildlife. You’ll have time to feed the kangaroos and meet the koalas in a pristine bushland setting.

Next, enjoy a scenic drive along Westernport Bay to magnificent Phillip Island — where you’ll enjoy a classic Aussie lunch. You’ll then cross the bridge from Phillip Island to Churchill Island to visit the fascinating Churchill Island Heritage Farm. This is a chance to step back in time to the 19th century and learn about traditional farming practices, or just take a stroll and meet the farm animals.

The final stop on this Phillip Island Penguins, Wildlife Park and Farm Tour from Melbourne is the Penguin Parade Visitor Information Centre for the main event! Here you’ll take your seat in the General Viewing area to watch the little penguins returning up the beach at dusk. Upgrades to Penguin Plus seating or the Guided Ranger Tour option are available. Simply follow the prompts when booking.

At the appointed time you’ll make your way back to the bus for the return trip to Melbourne, and drop-off at your original pick-up point.
