We did the Great Ocean Road Tour yesterday with Paul (the owner) as our guide. This is a long day - no way around it if you want to see the 12 Apostles, but Paul did many stops along the way. Our 1st stop was for tea. The weather was iffy so Paul set us up under cover and made... More

We took multiple tours during our two week stay in Australia and this one was by far the best! Paul, our guide and the owner of the company, went above and beyond to give us a great day (plus we lucked out with perfect weather). I often felt rushed on a lot of the other tours we took, trying to... More

was picked up from our hotel and greeted in the early hours by an incredibly friendly guy named Paul, throughout the trip he was very talkative and very factual in many of the sights we passed and visited. Provided some very Australian snacks for the stop off, including Aussie coffee/tea, ANZAC biscuits, Vegemite, Tim-Tams etc. at this time and throughout... More

Paul, our guide and owner of the tour company, went above and beyond to wow our small group. From the top-notch vehicle (Mercedes Van), to the stops (breathtaking views, Beach & Rainforest walks), to the multiple food stops included (yum!) to the extra stops to see the Koala Bears & Kangaroos - my wife & I loved it!! The only... More

This tour is pretty much perfect. The small group size makes for a way more personal experience then the full size coach bus tours. It also allowed us to go to smaller places like the rain forest walk that a large bus could not get into. Rob, the tour guide, was fantastic. He gave lots of great bits of information... More

Had a great trip to the Great Ocean Road that was well paced. Stacey, our guide was excellent and took efforts to get all of us on the tour to introduce each other and always offered to take photos for us. An awesome way to enjoy the Great Ocean Road!

Me and two friends went on this tour on our first full day in Melbourne. The tour was great from start to finish. Way more than expected, and Paul, our tour guide, went above and beyond to make everyone feel included and ensure that we learned and saw as much as possible. I could not recommend this tour-truly awesome experience... More

The Great Ocean Road was one of my favorite excursions that my mom and I embarked on during our time in Australia. It would not have been nearly as amazing if it weren’t for Escape Discovery Adventures! They've GREAT customer service— from the moment I emailed Paul, the owner of Escape Discovery Adventures, he was so understanding about the stand-by... More

The twelve-hour day zipped by in large part to Rob's indefatigable energy, knowledge, and guidance. Whether it was an overview of the history of the Great Ocean Road to the characteristics of sub-tropical rainforests, to the best photo spot, Rob knew it all.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
