The Great Ocean Road is a marvel of natural beauty, with the majestic Port Campbell National Park serving as the centrepiece of its remarkable landmarks.

With the world famous 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and London Arch comprising the sublime national park, there is no better place to explore Victoria’s beauty than in this amazing testament to Mother Nature!

One of the ultimate – and most thrill seeking – ways to experience the national park is via helicopter ride. This unforgettable experience will take you soaring above the spectacular scenery, taking in these most indomitable natural structures as you fly.

In line with standard safety protocols, each passenger will be weighed before their journey, before being lifted high above these most spectacular natural sights.

A helicopter ride is one of the most exciting experiences you can in this stunning part of the world, and perfectly combined with these other extraordinary Great Ocean Road experiences:

Surfing at Torquay

Torquay is the home of Aussie surfing, a swell-laden coastal stretch where the likes of Rip Curl, Quiksilver and the National Surfing Museum all reside and with great pride.

Naturally, this means Torquay is a pretty awesome place to catch a wave, and an even better place to try it for the very first time. Torquay is home to a number of surf schools that will teach you the ins and outs of how to start your journey toward surf mastery!

The Otways Rainforest

The Otways Rainforest is one of Australia’s most gorgeous natural landscapes, a vibrant eucalyptus, beech and blackwood trees dotting the beautiful scenery. The forest is also a place of great adventure, with boardwalks at ground height and in the forest canopy allowing you to experience this superb wonderland from a range of spectacular views!

Whether you’re on a koala-spotting expedition, taking in some of its impressive waterfalls or zip lining through the trees, the Otways Rainforest never fails to disappoint nature-loving travellers…


Lorne is, without a doubt, one of Australia’s most iconic resort towns, a gorgeously charming settlement sandwiched between the stunning Bass Strait in front and encroaching forests above.

Lorne is the perfect place to kick back and unwind over a meal and a beer after a day’s GOR-exploring, with plenty of delightful bars, cafes and restaurants lining its elegant main strip!
