The Great Ocean Road is rightly considered to be one of the most picturesque ocean roads in the world. Here you will find captivating ocean landscapes, long deserted beaches and an incessant roar of the surf, while national parks with waterfalls and wildlife are located along the coastline.
Your trip will start in Melbourne, over the famous West Gate Bridge, from which can be seen a gorgeous view of the port and centre of the city. Then you will travel down the highway towards the start of the Great Ocean Road and make your first stop at Bells Beach, renowned among surfers, where you will have the opportunity to marvel at the surrounding shoreline panorama.
Further down the road, you will cross the geographic border of two oceans, the Pacific and Indian, at the Split Point Lighthouse, and you will be able to take memorable photos of your adventure in front of a memorial arch.
Apart from breathtaking ocean views, we promise that you will get a chance to see koalas in the wild, as well as hand-feed parrots.
You will stop in the small town of Apollo Bay for lunch where you will be offered the freshest fish and seafood, which will be prepared right in front of you. Vegetarian meals also available if you wish. Also a complimentary glass of wine or natural oysters.
After lunch you will take a short stroll in an Australian rainforest amongst century-old giant eucalyptus trees and arborescent ferns.
The culmination of your trip will be visiting another of Australia’s icons – The Twelve Apostles. The memories of this view of cliffs towering over the raging ocean will stay with you for life. Next you will walk down the Gibson Steps and onto the beach at the foot of the Apostles, where you will have another chance to assess the greatness of these natural monuments.
We also recommend that you book a short helicopter flight above The Twelve Apostles. If you book it in advance, you won’t have to wait in a long queue.
At the end of the tour you will be dropped off at you hotel or any other destination in Melbourne.
