View magnificent coastal scenery on a Full Day Tour with a Private Guide


Travel the magnificent Great Ocean Road in a car where everyone is guaranteed a great view. See mountains rising straight from the pounding ocean along rugged Bass Strait. See the stunning Twelve Apostles. Look for Australia's unique koalas and birds.

If you have time, chose a walk through a rainforest with towering gum trees, or a visit to rugged Cape Otway lighthouse, or a spectacular helicopter flight over the 12 Apostles (at own cost).

Note - this tour is a long day trip from Melbourne and you will not return to Melbourne until at least 8pm and possibly later as you will find it hard to leave the beautiful coastline to come home! However the tour is ideal for cruise ship passengers on a day visit to Geelong.

Itinerary

Travel to the Surf Coast and famous Bells Beach where the world's longest running international surf competition is held at Easter.

We then travel to Aireys Inlet for morning tea before we stop start our exciting trip along the Great Ocean Road to Lorne and Apollo Bay.

After lunch at a local cafe, we head inland through a eucalyptus rain forest. If you have time you can chose a walk in the rainforest or a visit to Cape Otway lighthouse, before we arrive at the spectacular 12 Apostles. Or instead of either of these, you may chose an optional helicopter flight at the 12 Apostles to wonder at the spectacular coastal scenery (please let me know so I can book for you).

Depending on your individual needs, you have the option of dinner at Port Campbell before a relaxing 3 hour trip home through rolling hills and dairy farms.

Please note that it can be cold, windy, or raining along the Great Ocean Road even if a good day is forecast for Melbourne. Please bring additional clothing and jackets to keep warm

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

Duration: 12 hours

Often the tour takes even longer as guests find it hard to leave the magnificent scenery to head home!

Due to the late finish it is not feasible to do this tour if you are on a cruise ship that is not staying in Melbourne overnight. It is however a great tour if your cruise ship is visiting Geelong for the day

This tour may be varied or cancelled at short notice for operational reasons or adverse weather.
