The Great Ocean Road Day Tour

Visit the Great Ocean Road on a One Day Tour from Melbourne

Victoria’s Great Ocean Road is an amazing experience at any time of the year. One of the most beautiful coastal drives in the world, the Great Ocean Road stretches 243 km along the southern coast of Victoria.

Travel it and you will discover some of the world’s most inspiring scenery, an ever-changing hinterland and charming towns and hamlets. Marvel at the huge cliffs, roaring seas, tranquil coves, magnificent waterfalls and secluded beaches.

The Surf Coast

Gain an insight into Australian surfing culture at Bells Beach, with rugged cliffs and big waves. Discover seaside villages such as the popular town of Lorne, where you can stroll on the stunning beach. As you continue driving you may see koalas in the wild at Kennett River. Indulge in quality local Great Ocean Road produce and fresh seafood opposite the sandy beaches of Apollo Bay.

The Shipwreck Coast and the Infamous 12 Apostles

Head inland through the towering trees and ferns of temperate rain forest towards Port Campbell National Park to behold the sculptured beauty of The Twelve Apostles. Many of these stacks of flat-bedded limestone rise 65 metres above sea level and are an inspiring sight to see.
