Full description
Start your day with a visit to Port Phillip Bay, crossing over the West Gate Bridge along the way. From there continue on to Geelong; Victoria's largest provincial city.

Pass along Geelong's picturesque Corio Bay on the way to Torquay, the gateway to one of the world's most spectacular coastal roads . Here, start your trip down the 186-mile (300 km) Great Ocean Road, featuring some of the country's most beautiful ocean scenery. Enjoy morning tea and a piece of cake too.

Coastal cliffs and long golden surf beaches are a major attraction along the Great Ocean Road. Pass along the beautiful resort of Lorne and picturesque Apollo Bay, both of which draw visitors from around the world during holiday seasons. Sit down on the beach to enjoy a local favorite, a fish and chips lunch in Apollo Bay, or just wander along the town's main street.

Travel through the Otway National Park, a region of unspoilt rainforest with tree ferns and tall eucalyptus. Go for a walk down Gibsons Steps to the beach and get a whole different view from the water's edge, looking up at the dramatic limestone cliffs and spectacular rock stacks.

See the iconic Twelve Apostles, Razorback, Island Arch, and other twisted stone stacks. Shipwrecks are a tragic part of this rugged coast, the most notable being the Loch Ard. Descend into Loch Ard Gorge and enjoy plenty of time to experience the magic of the Shipwreck Coast. The dramatic scenery provides the perfect spot for great photos.

From here, make your way back to Melbourne aboard the bus. There'll be an Australian movie screened along the way.
