Overview
If you take only one road trip in Australia, it has to be the Great Ocean Road—a dramatic coastal route running along the south coast of Victoria. This tour is ideal for those short on time, taking in the GOR highlights in just one day and stopping at the Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, Apollo Bay, and Port Campbell.

Highlights
  • Drive the most scenic stretch of the world-famous Great Ocean Road
  • Spectacular photo ops: Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, and Apollo Bay
  • Look and learn: live commentary as you travel so you don’t miss anything
  • Hassle-free: hotel pickup and round-trip bus transportation from Melbourne
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your central Melbourne hotel. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned bus, leave the city behind and set out along the south coast of Australia to drive the famous Great Ocean Road. See the Twelve Apostles, the dozen rock pillars that stand just offshore. As you walk along the sea cliffs, you have an incredible view over the rocks, but you can also climb down to the beach for a closer look. Back on the bus, listen to your guide’s live commentary as you approach Loch Ard Gorge, named after the 19th-century British ship Loch Ard that was wrecked along the coast, leaving only two survivors. Next up is a stop at Port Campbell for a lunch break. (Lunch is own expense). Afterward, make a stop in Apollo Bay, one of the most photographed bays along the route, for tea (own expense). Lastly, make a stop at the famous London Bridge for a photo op. On return to Melbourne, cross the West Gate Bridge. Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Hi again Hitomi, We love that you have been able to supply a review of all 3 tours you have done with us. This can be quiet a long day and we are glad we were able to make you comfortable for the journey. We are a little jealous of the delicious fish and chips and ice creams mentions, we will certainly need to stop by the Great Ocean Road again soon :)
