Tour the spectacular Great Ocean Road on an award-winning full-day trip from Melbourne. The small, personalized eco tours take in all the icons of the famous road trip, including the 12 Apostles. Enjoy free on board Wi-Fi as you travel.


Enjoy morning views of Melbourne city and Port Phillip Bay as you cross the Westgate Bridge, Australia’s longest bridge, at just under 1.5 miles (2.6 kilometers). You are embarking on one of the world’s greatest drives to tour the Great Ocean Road!

Pass through Victoria’s second largest city at Geelong, and make your way down towards the Surf Coast, with its enchanting beach side towns and powerful swells. At Bells Beach, stop to appreciate this world famous surfing break, and to immerse yourself in a bit of the local surfing culture.

The scenic journey along the Great Ocean Road takes in some truly amazing coastal scenery, with new views being revealed around every bend. You will make plenty of scenic stops, including a photo opportunity at the Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch at Eastern View.

Afterwards, follow the Great Ocean Road away from the water and into the mountains. Proceed through the spectacular Otway Ranges and stop to enjoy a stroll in the cool, temperate rainforest at Maits Rest.

Continue to Port Campbell National Park, with its iconic array of rock formations. Be awestruck by the majestic monoliths of the 12 Apostles. Your final sightseeing destination is the collapsed London Bridge, where 2 holiday makers were stranded when the first arch collapsed in 1990. A dinner stop is made on the journey back to Melbourne at the beautiful township of Colac, before enjoying a stunning view of the illuminated city as you cross Westgate Bridge on the way home.

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Hong Kong, Hong Kong on August 21st, 2014 Our guide Nicki made all the difference-funny & entertaining! She made sure we got to know each other and looked after us, as well as getting us there & back safe!

  • Rating: 4 “Many nice views in short time.”

    Reviewed by Michele from Affoltern am Albis, Switzerland on February 5th, 2013 Very friendly Tourguide.

  • Rating: 5 “Very well organised trip to the Great Ocean Road”

    Reviewed by Oliver from Brietlingen, Germany on October 1st, 2012 If you're in Melbourne and you have time, you shouldn't miss a trip to the Great Ocean Road.
    And if you want to invest a couple more dollars you could take the chance to book a helicopter ride over the 12 apostles. It was a great experience, also the many stops on our drive down the Great Ocean Road.

  • Rating: 4 “All in all really nice tour”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Bad Pyrmont, Germany on September 30th, 2012 The Great Ocean Road is really very beautiful and should be seen. It was a good tour and the guide was also very experienced. The only shame was not stopping to take photos, especially when there were so many little areas to park and take really nice photos. On the way back to Melbourne we stopped in a small village again for 30 mins to eat at a fast food restaurant, that could have been left out.

  • Rating: 5 “Awesome tour with people from different places”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Neuenkirchen, Germany on September 28th, 2012 Absolutely worth the money. What i also liked is how i met many people from different places of the world.

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Mannheim, Germany on February 13th, 2012 Tour was well organized and the driver was very nice.

  • Rating: 4 “Nice and extensive tour at a good price.”

    Reviewed by Kathrin from Albaching, Germany on December 10th, 2011 Hotel pick up wasn't a problem even though we had shortly beforehand changed the pick up address. They put in a lot of effort and detail. A good tour for a good price.

  • Rating: 5 “Sehr gute Tour!”

    Reviewed by Hanna from Canberra, Australia on September 8th, 2014 Kompetenter Reiseführer, der viele Informationen gegeben und auch insgesamt auf die Gruppe geachtet hat (z.B. sich Namen gemerkt, Leute einander vorgestellt). Relativ kleine Gruppe (ca. 10-15 Leute). Wir haben an vielen kleineren Aussichtspunkten kurz gehalten und etwas länger an den Zwölf Aposteln. Zum Mittagessen konnte man zwischen verschiedenen Gerichten (Thai, Wraps) wählen.

  • Rating: 3 “Splendido panorama, escursione lunga”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Mezzocorona, Italy on September 1st, 2014 L'escursione dura circa 12 ore. Le vedute sono splendide, l'autista che è anche la guida è molto preparato e informato. In questo tipo di viaggio gli eventi sono molto condensati (circa 7 piccole escursioni lungo il percorso), alcuni dei quali a mio parere evitabili. Il viaggio si esegue su un piccolo pulmino di circa 20 persone che non offre grandi comfort (sedili stretti senza poggiatesta) e può risultare stancante soprattutto se come noi decidete di intraprendere più escursioni nel giro di pochi giorni. Se non avete molto tempo il mio consiglio è di rinunciare a qualche gita e concedervi una giornata di relax a Melbourne che è una bellissima città.

  • Rating: 5 “Wow”

    Reviewed by Giulia from TAVULLIA, Italy on September 1st, 2014 Giornata organizzata molto bene, la consiglio!

  • Rating: 4 “Ein schöner Tag!”

    Reviewed by Volker from Moormerland, Germany on March 29th, 2014 Die Tour war sehr schön, der Fahrer sehr kompetent. Den MP 3 Player mit der deutschen Führung gab es leider erst auf unsere Nachfrage hin. Der Stop für das Abendessen hätte an einer schöneren Stelle oder einem Restaurant erfolgen können.

  • Rating: 5 “Cooler entspannter Führer”

    Reviewed by Annett Diana from Plochingen, Germany on December 25th, 2013 Es war ein toller Ausflug mit einen kommunikationsfreudigen und aufgeschlossenen Führer (Mark)
    Leider hatten wir schlechtes Wetter, aber es war trotzdem sehr schön. So hatten die 12 Apostel etwas mystisches.
    Picknick am Strand war toll, Wild lebende Koalas konnte man sehen.
    Gutes Mittagessen (Thai).
    Alles in allem ein toller Trip.

  • Rating: 4 “Sehr empfehlenswert!”

    Reviewed by Inge from Magdeburg, Germany on November 6th, 2013 Die Great Ocean Road ist eine der schönsten Panoramastraßen der Welt und ist als Reiseziel unbedingt zu empfehlen. Die Tagestour entlang der Great Ocean Road war sehr abwechslungsreich, informativ und interessant. Positiv hervorzuheben sind: - ausführliche Informationen vor Reiseantritt per E-Mail, - pünktliche Abholung vom Treffpunkt und gutes Timing während der Tour, - kleine Reisegruppe (7), - umfangreiche Beschreibung der zahlreichen Sehenswürdigkeiten durch den Guide und mittels iPod-Translation

  • Rating: 5 “Preciosa”

    Reviewed by Marcelo Hugo from CABA, Argentina on August 1st, 2013 El tour recorre lugares maravillosos. Imperdibles. El guía Leonardo ha sido muy simpático y jovial. Lo recomendaría sin lugar a dudas.
