Description

After pickup at your hotel in Melbourne, depart early in the morning directly toward Torquay. Savor morning tea, then see some of the local surfers in action. Stock up on some chocolates for the day at the local Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery before continuing your journey through small local villages on the way to Split Point Lighthouse. Next, learn some of the history of the Great Ocean Road at the Memorial Arch before taking the steps down to the base of the Erskine Falls. Admire the magnificent falls, then grab lunch and take a stroll at Lorne. Enjoy some time for a quick swim off Lorne Beach, though be aware the water might be slightly cold. From Lorne, move on for another stroll to the Sheoak Falls. Soak up the spectacular views as you wind your way along the Great Ocean Road and stop to see some of the amazing wildlife. Then it’s time to enjoy the wonderful view from the Mariner's Lookout over the quiet village of Apollo Bay, your home for the night. Visit a lovely restaurant or cook for yourself in the hostel's large kitchen. Get another early start on Day 2 and walk through the temperate rainforest in the section of the Great Ocean Road known as the Green Coast. Continue your journey along the Green Coast, stopping at lookouts on the way, until you reach the highest point along the road, Lavers Hill. Tuck into your morning tea at Lavers Hill then visit the Shipwreck Coast to view all 9 lookouts along this section of the road, including the 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, and London Bridge. After exploring all these stops, head inland and travel back to Melbourne.
