On this 2 day tour of the Great Ocean Road & Phillip Island you will simply be amazed at the beauty of the Twelve Apostles & Loch Ard Gorge, the national parks and the wonderful places along the Surf Coast. There are so many highlites on this tour but one would have to be watching the gorgeous fairy penguins leaving the sea and heading for home as the sunsets. The tour is designed so you won't miss a thing!

  • Travel along one of the most beautiful coastal roads on the world
  • Visit the Twelve Apostles & Loch Ard Gorge
  • Walk barefoot in the sand along the Surf Coast
  • Interact with iconic Australian animals, from kangaroos and koalas to penguins, owls and snakes
  • Drive through Mornington Peninsula to Phillip Island for the Fairy Penguin Parade
  • Stay overnight at the fabulous Beacon Resort Park

This two day tour will leave you wondering how all this natural beauty & experiences can be packed into two days.

The Great Ocean Road is one of the most beautiful ocean drives in the world. As you travel along the 243 kilometres, you have the Great Southern Ocean lapping the coast line on one side and on the other it is bound by national parks.

The star of the show is the Twelve Apostles, and they do not disappoint. You will see these amazing limestone stacks from the lookout as well as from the beach. You will be able to walk down The Gibson’s Steps (86 steps) to see the 12 Apostles from ground level and realize just how tall they are. Make sure you get creative with your photos from this angle!

We also stop at Loch Ard Gorge, many people find this work of nature as beautiful, if not more so, than the Twelve Apostles. You won’t be able to tear yourself away from the colours of the gorge and watching the waves come and go.

The next wonderful place we visit is the Otway National Park where there is time to walk through this amazing old rainforest. The sights and smells will revitalize you. As we head to our overnight stop at the Beacon Resort, you will pass the beaches of what is known as the Surf Coast.
