  • Stop at London Bridge, The Razorback & Loch Ard Gorge

Without a doubt, the Great Ocean Road is one of the most breathtaking natural sceneries on earth! An impressive rainforest, magnificent coastal erosion formations such as the world famous Twelve Apostles, and a powerful emerald ocean come together to form a unique and unforgettable landscape. We collect you from your CBD hotel in our comfortable Renault Grand Master minibus, which has onboard WiFi, allowing you to share your photos with friends at anytime.

Reverse Itinerary: Travel straight to the 12 Apostles! We believe that our travelers deserve to fully appreciate their experience in such a special place, so we like to avoid the crowds and get to the main attractions before the other tour operators. We do this by offering our itinerary in reverse. We drive inland through Victoria’s beautiful countryside, stretch our legs and have a coffee (at own expense) at the picturesque Lake Colac, and then head straight to The Twelve Apostles. It's guaranteed you will arrive there before the large crowds of the afternoon, having the opportunity to visit this internationally famous attraction while is still quiet and peaceful and you can take a lot of amazing pictures.

We then drive on the awe-inspiring Great Ocean Road and stop to admire at least other four must-see attractions: London Bridge, The Razorback, Loch Ard Gorge and stop for lunch (own expenses) at Port Campbell charming coastal town. We also get the chance to see the incredible Australian wildlife and are usually lucky enough to spot koalas, kangaroos, cockatoos, and parrots. We manage our time to enjoy each attraction without rush, and there is plenty of time for taking photographs, too! Our tours are designed to guarantee that we will create remarkable moments with you!
