Start your Morning the Right Way

The Great Ocean Road is considered an Australian National Heritage and with this full-day tour, you will get to see exactly why this 240-kilometer stretch along Australia’s south-eastern coast is considered a true gem. As you leave Melbourne to start your adventure, you will see panoramic views of Port Phillip Bay, crossing Westgate Bridge. Continuing on this path, you will pass by Geelong, Victoria’s second-largest city with its beautiful beachside towns.

Be at one with nature

When you reach the town of Anglesea, you will make a quick stop for a chance to walk along the Anglesea River before getting back on the road towards the town of Kennet River. Here, if you’d like you can fuel up with lunch amidst sweet-smelling eucalyptus trees and maybe even spot some koala bears in their natural habitat.

At the Port Campbell National Park, your first stop will be at Loch Ard Gorge where your guide will tell you about the legend of Loch Ard. While at the National Park, you will also get to visit the famous rock formations of Razorback and go to Island Archway.

Admire the Beauty of the Seaside during Sunset

With the sun slowly starting to set, you will make your way to the final destination, the majestic Twelve Apostles. The colors of the setting sun have a beautiful effect on the land around you, a sight you will not want to miss. Your Australian holiday ends with memories that you will cherish for a long time coming.
