All about the Fly Drive Dine – Great Ocean Road.

Imagine a day of being driven in a luxury Mercedes Benz to the coastal town of Apollo Bay where awaiting you is a private helicopter that takes you up over the Otway Ranges to see the dramatic coastline of the 12 Apostles and viewing these spectacular limestone stacks from the air. Then return via Cape Otway Lighthouse station to land where you indulge in a gourmet seafood lunch then resume your private touring experience of the coastal route back to Melbourne stopping at significant viewing platforms and seaside towns.

This tour is the ultimate way to experience the best the Great Ocean Road has to offer and to add that wow factor to your special day. This is also the best way to shorted the length of the journey so you don’t spend too many hours in the vehicle and can get back feeling refreshed and enthusiastic after such an exhilarating day.

50 min Flight in a Helicopter from Apollo Bay over the Otway Ranges to the 12 Apostle Region to view the limestone stacks, Loch Ard Gorge, Gibson’s Steps and the rugged shipwreck coastline. Your return follows the coast to the Otway Lighthouse with impressive views of the southern ocean whilst enjoying the commentary of the sights from your pilot. Your private helicopter only takes 3 passengers and landing at the 12 Apostles to walk out to the viewing platfrom can be arranged. If your group is larger we can substitute a light aircraft which holds 5 passengers.

Drive in a Luxury Mercedes Benz and receive expert commentary from your experienced guide as they take you to country artisan chocolaterie and ice creameries and ensure you stop at the significant vantage points and towns that make up the Great Ocean Road. We journey through the seaside towns of Apollo Bay, Lorne, Anglesea and other historic sights as you learn the history of how it was built by return soldiers and is considered the largest war memorial sight in the world. We stop and give you time to wonder along the beach and hear the ocean and walk on the sand.

Seafood Lobster Basket  Your lunch is either a seafood lobster basket freshly caught by local fisherman overlooking the harbor, or make it a gourmet picnic on the beach with a bottle of wine. Alternatively if you prefer a restaurant we know just the place for those who want waiter service that caters to to Surf & Turf options.
