Enjoy a scenic drive inland, via Colac. Visit highlights such as the famous 12 Apostles and the stunning Loch Ard Gorge. Pass seaside townships and stunning coastal views. Admire ancient rainforests and keep an eye open for carnivorous snails; prepare to be blown off your feet by stunning views, famous surf beaches and the cutest koalas in the wild. Plenty of picture perfect photo opportunities throughout the day without missing a thing!


By travelling in the opposite direction of all other major tour companies, we avoid busy traffic and big crowds. This will give you the opportunity to enjoy Great Ocean Road to the fullest.



Escape the city by traveling inland direct to the Shipwreck Coast via Colac enjoying a complimentary morning tea along the way. Our first major stop will be the breath-taking 12 Apostles and the extraordinary rock formations of Loch Ard Gorge. Venture down the Gibson Steps (weather permitted) or visit the famous London Bridge. We then slowly wind our way back along one of the world’s most spectacular coastal drives with stunning ocean views, famous surf beaches, and visit the historic Memorial Arch.


Enjoy a guided walk through ancient rainforests and admire some of the world’s tallest trees in the Otway National Park. Spot koalas in the wild at Kennett River then enjoy dinner in the township of Torquay before returning to Melbourne.
