Full description
Leave the city heading over the Westgate Bridge bright and early to maximize your time on the Great Ocean Road. After just over an hour’s drive, stop on a popular surf beach near the town of Anglesea for morning coffee. Take a short drive before stopping at Memorial Arch, which commemorates the returned soldiers who worked on the construction of the 151–mile stretch of road following World War I.

Continue along the Great Ocean Road taking in the spectacular ocean, beach and cliff views. Your guide will help you spot koalas among the eucalyptus trees, as you journey along this famous coastline. After lunch, the road and the ocean part ways for the next few hours as you head into the Otway Rainforest.

Take a short 30-minute guided walk right into the heart of the rainforest. Feel dwarfed by some of the largest tree species in the world. Wind further through the forest and return to the ocean, making a stop at the mighty Shipwreck Coast. Here, spend a large portion of the day exploring the 12 apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and Gibson Steps, all a short drive from one another. Your guide will share the tales of disaster, destruction and survival. After a long day, relax on the drive back to Melbourne and reflect on a great day spent on the Great Ocean Road.
