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.
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 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!
The tour will start at your hotel and travel over the West Gate Bridge where you have a great view of Melbourne before travelling to the Surf Coast and famous Bells Beach where the world's longest running international surf competition is held at Easter.
We then travel through Anglesea and Aireys Inlet before we start our exciting trip along the Great Ocean Road to Lorne and Apollo Bay.
We head inland for a walk through a eucalyptus rain forest or a visit to Cape Otway lighthouse, before we arrive at the spectacular Twelve 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.
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.

"He was very knowledgeable and personable. He was also very accommodating and excited to show us all the beautiful sights along the way. We ate at some very nice and quaint restaurants. He even treated us to breakfast at our first stop. The restaurants we stopped at for lunch and dinner served delicious fare. I left a camera case in our van, and he was kind enough to deliver it to our hotel early the next morning. I would strongly recommend this tour with him as your guide."
