  • Drive along one of the world's most spectacular coastal roads

Description

Begin the day with an early start leaving the Melbourne CBD where you will drive over the Westgate Bridge towards the Great Ocean Road - one of the few places where the destination and the journey are the same thing. Once you arrive on the Great Ocean Road, enjoy morning tea along the Surf Coast at your first stop, a perfect way to meet your fellow travelers and your guide for the day. As you wind along this iconic road, each twist and turn reveals new spectacular views of the rugged coastline and into the Otway Ranges that lie inland. Hear the history of the road and its workers as you make a stop at Memorial Arch, also known as the Great Ocean Road sign. Pass through quaint yet popular holiday resort towns before your guide takes you on a wild koala spotting adventure amongst their natural habitat of the eucaluptus trees. Make your way to the historical town of Apollo Bay for a bite of lunch. Stroll the streets, meander the main beach or try some unique and award-winning ice cream. After lunch, the road ventures away from the coastline and into the heart of the Otways National Park. Embark on a guided walk through the crisp fresh air of an ancient rainforest. A truly magical part of the day as you're emersed amongst ferns and the world's second tallest species of tree. The journey continues through the rainforest before reaching the Shipwreck Coast where you will find some of the biggest attractions for the day. Hear about the coastline's most famous shipwreck before stepping down into the gorge at the center of the story of the Loch Ard ill-fated journey. Be towered by the sheer limestone cliffs that form the gorge as you stand on the beach or step into the cold waters of the Southern Ocean at the bottom before reaching the major attraction - the 12 Apostles. View these ginormous limestone monoliths formed by hundreds of years of erosion as they stand high and strong against the forces of nature. A true sight to behold and a perfect way to cap off the day before making your way back to Melbourne for the night.
