Great Ocean Road Small Group Deluxe Itinerary

Travel down the iconic Great Ocean Road – the world’s largest war memorial. Spanning for almost 250 kilometres, it is a must-see for anyone visiting Victoria. You’ll explore the coastline and visit beautiful sites that have been carved out by the ocean over millions of years.

We’ll leave Melbourne early to ensure we can spend the most time possible along the picturesque coastline. The first stop of the day will be in Anglesea for some morning tea and a coffee with a view. Get your first taste of Australian coastal air before we head to the Memorial Arch, the official starting point of the Great Ocean Road.

You’ll have time to take some photos with the archway before we head along the winding road towards some of Australia’s most beautiful coastal destinations.

No trip Down Under is complete without some wildlife spotting, so we will stop to roam through wild koala habitat. Tread quietly and look up to spot the grey cuties and listen out for the songs of kookaburras and fairy-wrens.

Having worked up an appetite wildlife spotting we’ll make the short trip to Apollo Bay for some lunch. Explore the quaint town and enjoy a delicious meal at a local café or head down to the beach for a picnic on the sand.

With full bellies, we’ll journey to Cape Otway National Park. Your guide will lead you through this stunning rainforest and past centuries-old eucalyptus trees. You won’t believe such a lush green forest could be so close to the dramatic coastline you’ve just left. Keep an eye out for unique wildlife and exquisite native Australian plants.

Next, you’ll return to the coast, ready to visit the 12 Apostles. See these incredible limestone stacks, carved from the cliffs over millions of years by the unforgiving sea they stand in. Watch as the sky changes colour and the fabulous stacks are lit up by the fading sun behind him.

Learn about the region’s shipwreck history from your tour guide, then make your way down to Loch Ard Gorge. Feel the sand beneath your feet as you explore the contained beach, watching the waves gently crash along the shore. From here you can also see the Razorback, an impossibly thin cliff face, or marvel at the Island Archway. Say goodbye to the coast with one final barefoot walk along the sand before boarding the bus ready to head towards Melbourne again.

You’ll have one final stop, usually in the small town of Colac, where you’ll have a quick break and bite before returning to Melbourne.

This tour is a perfect introduction to the dramatic and beautiful Victorian coastline. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to see all the best the Great Ocean Road has to offer.
