This 1 Day Great Ocean Road Day Tour is one of Melbourne’s most popular tours. On the spectacular Great Ocean Road Tour, experience this breathtaking coastline with pristine beaches, rainforests, charming seaside towns and of course the iconic 12 Apostles. Our small group tour offers more stops and more inclusions than our large coach option, making this the best value 12 Apostles tour available.
Leaving Melbourne, we’ll stop off at a popular surf beach on the Great Ocean Road, where we will have morning tea and watch some surfers catch waves at one of the Great Ocean Road’s famous surfing destinations. We visit the historic Memorial Arch to get our photo taken before passing through the quaint coastal resort towns of Lorne and Anglesea.
Count how many koalas you can spot and enjoy spending time with some of Australia’s native parrots, lorikeets and even kookaburras, with a coastal walk. This wildlife viewing walk is not available on the large coach tour, so enjoy your up-close and personal experience with Aussie wildlife. Next up we head to the picturesque Apollo Bay where you can grab some lunch from one of the many cafes that dot the street.
Next on this 1 Day Great Ocean Road Tour we will take a guided walk through Maits Rest Rainforest. Located in the Otway Rainforest, here you will see some of the tallest eucalyptus trees in Australia. Back on the road we twist and wind through Port Campbell National Park to arrive at the Shipwreck Coast.
Find yourself surrounded by towering limestone cliffs and take a walk along the beach at Loch Ard Gorge. View the Archway, The Razorback and Dumpling Pots. Hear the tragic tails of the Shipwreck Coast. Before departing the Shipwreck Coast, take Gibson’s Steps which are carved into the limestone cliff face to view the 12 Apostles from the beach or check out the fallen London Bridge.
Finally, we arrive at the highlight of the Great Ocean Road Tour – the world famous 12 Apostles. Walk out to the lookouts for spectacular views and photo opportunities or enjoy the chance to soar above them with an optional helicopter flight. Helicopter flights last 15 minutes and take you into the sky for a unique view of this ever changing coastline.
