Full description
Enjoy morning views of Melbourne city and Port Phillip Bay as you cross the Westgate Bridge, Australia’s longest bridge, at just under 1.5 miles (2.6 kilometers). You are embarking on one of the world’s greatest drives to tour the Great Ocean Road! The scenic journey along the Great Ocean Road takes in some truly amazing coastal scenery, with new views being revealed around every bend. You will make plenty of scenic stops, including a photo opportunity at the Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch at Eastern View and a stop at Kennet River, home to a large population of cute and cuddly wild Koalas. A sighting is almost guaranteed as they munch away on Eucalyptus leaves. Then it is on to Apollo Bay for a chance to walk around the famous coastal town. Afterwards, follow the Great Ocean Road away from the water and into the mountains. Proceed through the spectacular Otway Ranges and stop to enjoy a stroll in the cool, temperate rainforest at Maits Rest. Continue to Port Campbell National Park, with its iconic array of rock formations. Be awestruck by the majestic monoliths of the 12 Apostles. A dinner stop is made on the journey back to Melbourne at the beautiful township of Colac, before enjoying a stunning view of the illuminated city as you cross Westgate Bridge on the way home.

The tour was well planned and executed! Chris (our guide) was enthusiastic, friendly, and considerate. He had good time management, leaving us sufficient time at each photo point/checkpoint. Chris was very knowledgeable throughout the entire tour as well! Overall, would highly recommend this tour :-) My mom and I enjoyed ourselves very much!

The trip was great, Chris is an excellent guide. Whole experience was fun and entertaining, Chris was adjusting the stops to the weather conditions. You get stops for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so don't worry about food. The sights were amazing and you get lots of interesting facts about them :) definitely worth it!

A very well planned and executed trip. The guide Sherif takes the entire credit to make the trip a memorable one. He is a man with great passion to make the trip as much interactive for each of the traveller. He explained the history about Melbourne, Tourquay and the The great Ocean road in such a nice way that we were excited to see whats coming next.
