My mum and I took the Great Ocean Road day-tour with our guide Paul. Although it was many hours spent on the road, Paul was very entertaining during the trip. He made a point to get to know a bit about everyone on his tour and engage with us. The vehicle we were in seats 11 comfortably with enough leg... More

My sister and I are in Melbourne for the week and had booked the Great Ocean Road tour through Escape as it was highly rated on this site. While it is not the cheapest Great Ocean Road tour, it was well worth the money. Our pick-up location and time was confirmed a few days prior and we were picked up... More

Our guide and driver, Phil, picked us up from the hotel. Small group of 11 pax, brand new Mercedes van. Nice drive, dinner (optional) at Sherwood's. Visited wildlife park to feed kangaroos, wallabies, emus, cassowaries and swans. Saw other native wildlife - koalas, Tasmanian devils, snakes and lizards. Great attention to detail, ponchos, cushion and blanket provided for a more... More

Escape Discovery Adventures was the best experience of our Holiday. We visited Melbourne for 5 days and 1 day trip to Twelve Apostoles was on 4th day. This trip was break point where we felt pampered and Paul gave us nice holiday feeling. I was little bit worried that I was going to sleep most of the way, and I... More

Paul is simply the BEST ! He turned a long day driving trip into an adventure & kept us entertained with history, stories & jokes. The meals & drinks included in the tour were most generous & delicious. The new chocolate factory visit is a plus. You cannot go wrong with this tour even if there are summer flies 😆.

This is the best trip i ever had. Paul is simply fabulous and there is never a dull moment. His commentary is detailed and he never failed to make it interesting. His sense of humor has brought us lots and lots of fun and laughter. Enjoyed this trip immensely. 5 stars for Paul!

This tour hits all the highlights of the Great Ocean Road! One of the best day tours I booked in Australia. You go to beaches, great ocean road "gate," see koalas (hopefully for you) see rain forests, 12 apostles, razor back, loch ard gorge. We also got morning coffee/tea, lunch, and dinner. Shout out to our tour guide Rob, who... More

I have gone to Great Ocean Road twice (via tours) and also have gone to other tours in Melbourne but the Escape Discovery Adventures tour with Rob has definitely been the best tour experience for me so far. The tour was well thought off from the van to the stops and even to food places. Also, Rob was very enthusiastic... More

Great guided tour lead by Stacey from Escape Discovery Adventures in luxurious mini bus. We were picked up from the Crown Promenade Hotel in central Melbourne. On the way down to Phillip Island Stacey kept us informed and amused by her excellent commentary. The first stop, apart from a welcome comfort one, was to visit the Phillip Island Wildlife Park...

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.
