Itinerary

Your Great Ocean Road adventure begins with pickup from your Melbourne hotel, where you’ll board a Wi-Fi–equipped minivan. Travel through the beautiful beach town of Torquay, the official start of the Great Ocean Road, and stop to observe wild koalas at Kennett River.

Break for lunch at a restaurant overlooking Apollo Bay before exploring the semitropical forest of Great Otway National Park. Gaze at the dramatic Twelve Apostles, undoubtedly the region’s most famous natural landmark, during a stop at Port Campbell National Park; upgrade to include an unforgettable helicopter ride over the iconic rock formations.

Visit Loch and Gorge, the site of a notorious 19th-century shipwreck, and marvel at the dramatic result of erosion at Gibson’s Steps.

Stop for dinner (at your own expense) before relaxing during the journey back to your Melbourne hotel.
