About
Our small group (8 guests max) will depart Melbourne and head straight to the famous 12 Apostles before the masses of people arrive. Here we will take a 1km stroll along the boardwalk while appreciating the stunning views of the limestone stacks before continuing onto another spectacular scene, Gibson Steps. We walk down the 70m cliffside pathway to the beach where there is plenty of time to take some incredible photos. Next it’s time for a delicious lunch at our favourite local cafe before we’ll drive through the magical Great Otway National Park and take a 3km hike through ancient rainforests to the dreamy Beauchamp Falls (where the big bus companies can’t go). Our next stop we will take a stroll amongst the giants of the forest at the Californian Redwoods before continuing along the iconic Great Ocean Road stopping at Apollo Bay for an optional ice cream. Kennett River is next where you’ll get the chance to spot native koalas, king parrots & kangaroos going about their routines.

The best day trip ever!
Jun 2021
My boyfriend and I did the 12 Apostles, Otways and Great Ocean Road Day Tour on the 20th of June and had the most incredible day!! It was straight after the latest Covid lockdown here in Melbourne and so it ended up just being the 2 of us on the tour with James as our super knowledgeable, fun and friendly guide! We had the best day and saw so many amazing sights from the 12 Apostles (James knew so many interesting facts here as well as at all of the places we visited!) the Otways, a beautiful waterfall and the incredible Californian Redwoods! We had lunch at a cute cafe along the way and plenty of time to stop and take it all in at every single destination. We packed so much into the day & got to see Koalas in the wild for the first time too! Wrapping up the day with a quick trip to beautiful Lorne with time to stop for a coffee was a perfect way to end the day. I highly recommend booking and having this experience for yourself :). This was our second trip with Hike & Seek and we'll definitely be back for more! Thanks James & Hike & Seek for these incredible adventures we have been having with you!

Great day out
May 2021
Great day out on the Ocean Road. We had stunning weather and Mick was an excellent guide. The small tour group of 6 people and the small tour bus was good and we saw much more than the 12 Apostles. Due to COVID there were no crowds and the side trips to the waterfall and redwood stands added to the trip plus the koala sighting at Kennet Beach. this is one of the few tours still running in Victoria ad deserve to succeed.
the lunch and coffee stoops were at small independent stores and both were very good.

Terrific work trip tour!
Feb 2021
Terrific day from start to end. Our tour guide Michael was extremely friendly & accommodating, he shared a wealth of knowledge and insight on the incredible history at each landmark. The day went incredibly smoothly visiting the twelve apostles and several other magical landscapes down the great ocean road. Highly recommend and look forward to booking the next one! Thank you James & Michael for fulfilling our requirements and leaving us with what was a very memorable day!

Awesome way to explore the GOR
Lots of stops to get out and explore. Really stunning landscapes. All the benefits of traveling in a small group. Knowledgeable, nice and hospitable guide. It’s a long day (12 hours) and I was tired at the end of it. Happy tired. Very happy tired.

Uplifting day hikes
Jan 2021
As a Victorian, I decided to be a tourist in my own state for the Summer break – but I wanted somebody else to take care of it all. I chose Hide and Seek because they offered small group day hikes to some of my favourite places in Victoria. I did the Wilson’s Prom and 12 Apostles/Great Otways/Great Ocean Road day trips. Both trips were totally different, but both had a variety of walks and wildlife sightings in many beautiful environments. Our guide/driver, Shane, was knowledgeable and easy-going, and checked-in with us throughout the trip. I recommend Hike and Seek whether you’re an international or domestic tourist, travelling solo or with a friend. It was great to let someone else do the planning and driving! An uplifting experience with a cool group of people.

Highlight of our Melbourne Vacation!!!
Mar 2020 • Couples
MUST BOOK! This was the highlight of our week in Melbourne. Not just a 12 Apostles sightseeing tour! This was MUCH more than that.

First We we're picked up in a brand new van, which was super comfortable and roomy. James provided us coffee and fruit before we departed which was a lovely touch. We then headed straight for the 12 Apostles, which happened to be the most beautiful landscape I had ever seen. After that we drove to the Otways, where we proceeded to hike down to an incredible and secluded waterfall. From there we took a stroll amongst some massive sequoia trees, spotted some koalas, and took a dip in the Southern Ocean. All the while getting some local knowledge from James and some tasty food from some kind folks along the way.

James was super professional and courteous. He went out of his way to make sure his guests had an impeccable time. He really takes pride in his work and it really shows! Would recommend to anyone and would absolutely book with Hikeandseek again when we return to Melbourne. Top notch service, experience, and value! I wish i could give it 6 stars!

Amazing Experience
One of the best tours I’ve ever been on in almost 50 countries. Not only because of where it takes you but the experience that the company gives takes it to the next level.

Fantastic views, fantastic host
Feb 2020
A long day full of wonderful experiences! Michael, our host and driver, was friendly, enthusiastic, genuine, and knowledgeable. The weather was not cooperative, unfortunately, with rain on-and-off throughout the day (Michael had rain ponchos ready when we needed them). We still managed to enjoy ourselves thoroughly and to get a real sense of the landscape and fauna west of Melbourne.
