Great Ocean Road - 1 Day VIP Group Tour

The Great Ocean Road is one of the premier tourist drives in the world and a must for anyone visiting Melbourne. Victoria’s finest driving route covers over 243 kilometres of stunning scenery offering wildlife encounters with koalas, majestic ocean vistas and wind-carved gorges. The coastal route meanders through charming surf towns and the lush Eucalyptus forest of the Otway Ranges, ending at the dramatic Shipwreck Coast. Here you’ll see the world-renowned 12 Apostles from 60-metre high cliffs above the pounding sea.

Our unique itinerary first visits Narana Aboriginal Cultural Community for morning tea, where you’ll receive a ‘welcome to land’ ceremony with coffee and locally made cakes. Next, you’ll visit Bells Beach, Australia’s number one surf beach before we meander through the charming towns of Lorne and Apollo Bay. There’ll be time to take in the views of the Surf Coast Shire and snap a few photos along the way.

We’ll take our lunch at the Cape Otway Lighthouse after travelling inland through the majestic Eucalyptus forests of the Otway Ranges where you’ll have a great chance to spot wild koalas. Lunch at Cape Otway Lighthouse includes two courses, wine and a lighthouse tour. The historic lighthouse precinct is located at one of the southernmost points on the mainland and we are the only private tour company with access here.

After lunch, you’ll experience the dramatic Shipwreck Coast from atop 60-metre high cliffs with amazing views of the huge limestone stacks in the ocean that we call the 12 Apostles. You can further explore this breathtaking area by walking down the Gibson Steps to the beach. Then in nearby Loch Ard Gorge, you’ll hear the heroic and tragic story of the ill-fated Loch Ard shipwreck.

On our way back to Melbourne, we travel inland through the fertile dairy country of the Otways, stopping at a local chocolatier for last minute indulgence before arriving back in Melbourne at approximately 7:30-8:00pm.
