On this tour we head straight to the Twelve Apostle, arriving before most of the other tour buses! Imagine taking in the spectacular sight of the 12 Apostles without the crowds.You still get to see Loch Ard Gorge, Otway Rainforest, Apollo Bay, exquisite Australian wildlife and the amazing scenery of the Great Ocean Road.

  • Experience spectacular coastal scenery, winding your way along the Great Ocean Road
  • Soak up the ambience of Otway Rainforest and visit the Shipwreck Coast
  • Stand in awe at the colossal limestone columns of the Twelve Apostles
  • Visit the quaint little resort towns of Anglesea and Lorne

The Great Ocean Road Reverse Tour direction enables our passengers to experience the National
Heritage-listed Great Ocean Road in all its glory in the reverse direction. By operating this tour in reverse, we
avoid all the normal tourist masses that visit the 12 Apostles, giving our passengers a better opportunity to
capture that picture-perfect photograph without the crowds. This Great Ocean Road reverse tour itinerary
will visit all the same key destinations and highlights as our standard great ocean road tour, so rest assured
you won’t miss a thing.

Escape the city by traveling inland direct to the Shipwreck Coast via Colac enjoying a complimentary
morning tea along the way. Take a journey and experience the Great Ocean Road reverse tour in the
opposite direction to the masses, enabling you to escape the crowds and enjoy this famous & picturesque
coastline in all it’s glory. Our first major stop will be the breath-taking 12 Apostles and the extraordinary rock
formations of Loch Ard Gorge in Port Campbell. Discover Mutton Bird Island & Razorback lookout, both
offering amazing views. Then, enjoy a guided walk through Maits Rest or Melba Gully, an ancient rainforest
admiring some of the world’s tallest trees in the Great Otway National Park.

We continue our journey along this spectacular National Heritage listed road winding between hillsides,
pristine beaches, stunning ocean views and dense rainforest. The Great Ocean Road is famously known as
one of the world’s most scenic coastal routes which you will get to enjoy without all the crowds. Our local
guides will try to seek out the iconic Australian koala, as this coastal region is heavily populated with these
furry creatures hidden within the pockets of Eucalyptus forests.

Stopping next at the Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch, one of the most photographed spots along this rugged coastline. This monument is a tribute to the World War One serviceman who built the Great Ocean Road stretching 243 kilometres and was finally completed in 1932. A great location to grab a group photo under the archway and share with friends on social media. From here, we sit back, relax and enjoy the drive back into the dynamic and cosmopolitan city of Melbourne.
