Experience it all on a one day trip...

Australia’s Great Ocean Road is legendary; a road that hugs the side of sheer cliffs, and where native bushland meets the clear blue waters of the most spectacular coastline. Take a full-day journey along this miraculous road, and enter a land of mighty rock formations. Hear tales of shipwrecks along the coast, and get breathtaking vistas around every corner.

As you drive, you will see spectacular views of the coastline, including the famous 12 Apostles rock formations, and Loch Ard Gorge. You can then head down Gibson Steps (if time permits) to arrive at one of the most pristine beaches in Australia. You will have the chance to experience the temperate rainforest; walk among gigantic rainforest trees as you take in its splendor. The 12-hour tour has everything from rainforest walks to koala spotting in the wild.

You will travel in a small coach, with a maximum of 21 passengers, allowing for a more personalized service throughout the day. Your driver guide will have extensive local knowledge, helping to point out the best of the best sights.
