Ultimate Coastal Experience - The Great Ocean Road
- Duration: 13 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Melbourne, Victoria
- Product code: GOR
Our earlier start avoids any possible crowds, ensures a relaxed day ahead and sees us arrive at the beautiful Surf Coast in the tranquility and photographic heaven of the early morning light.
You are welcome to bring something on board to enjoy as we venture down to the coast, however a barista made coffee/tea or hot chocolate of your choice (included) awaits us as our day starts at Anglesea on the Great Ocean Road.
Our adventure travels East to West, unfolding the story of the road as it evolved in history and traces directly aside the oceans edge, providing the most dramatic aspect of the regions stunning scenery - building the anticipation to the crescendo that is the Shipwreck Coast and the 12 Apostles.
Along the way, we don’t follow a ‘set’ itinerary. Our truly boutique group size allows us to select the best locations and make impromptu stops to take full advantage of whatever nature offers us on each day.
Enjoying stunning coastal vistas, seaside towns, walking along beaches and of course a range of wildlife spotting are all part of our day along the Great Ocean Road.
But it's not just the coast. After lunch, we head deep into the Otways' rainforest to take you back to a land that time forgot on our immersive, fully guided rainforest interpretative experience. Our story will amaze and surprise you…..
And of course, the 12 Apostles – but it is so much more than that. Known as the Shipwreck Coast for good reason, we spend most of the afternoon here; including exploring Loch Ard Gorge where you can absorb the tales of one of the most dramatic and treacherous coastlines on earth as you descend the beach to touch the Southern Ocean.
What better way to round out your day before you relax on the homeward journey…
