COASTAL TOURS - VICTORIA
Great Ocean Road

Australia’s Great Ocean Road with it’s breathtaking scenery, is not only one of the world’s best ocean drives, it is also the world’s largest war memorial having been constructed by soldiers returning from the First World War as a tribute to their mates who did not return.

As it hugs the cliffs you will marvel at the endless beaches and the colour of the water. Come with us on your journey and we’ll reveal not just the history of the road but also the natural treasures hidden beside it such as koala habitats, spectacular bird life, ancient Gondwanaland rainforests and of course the geological masterpiece of the 12 apostles coastline.

Stay overnight with a stunning view of the Southern Ocean and watch the sunset while you enjoy the hospitality, the food and the wine at the famous Chris’s Beacon Point Restaurant in Apollo Bay.

Let us guide you for 2 days along the entire 243 kms of this road making stops along the way so you’ll have time to take in all this huge and spectacular coastline has to offer and then we’ll bring you back to Melbourne at journey’s end.
