Heading out of the city, we run expert tours to the Great Ocean Road featuring the Twelve Apostles and very special interactions with kangaroos, koalas, tiger quolls and bandicoots. On our Phillip Island tour you will time to fully explore the island and chat to your expert guide.

Our family of five had a fantastic time on the Great Ocean Road Tour with Fred and the Phillip Island Tour with Annette. On the Great Ocean Road tour it was a highlight to be able to see wild kangaroos and koalas.

Booked a tour with Oceania tours and had the great pleasure of having Fred as our guide. He was enthusiastic and knowledgable about the history and highlights of Melbourne, Australia. He even went out of his way to do a little extra for us.

Fred started as our guide and by the end of the tour was our friend. It was our honeymoon and we had booked quite a few tours over the course of our 2 week stay in Australia and, being from Colorado, we really wanted to learn as much as we could about this beautiful country. Fred really went above and... More

We used Oceania tours for our day trip to the Great Ocean Road. Our tour guide Fred was brilliant and stopped off in extra places which added to the experience. As our time in Melbourne was limited he even gave us tips of things we must see and do on our free day exploring the city. In hindsight I wish... More

This is my first time writing a bad review but this company really disappointed me: The Great Ocean Road tour is long as everybody mentioned here.

We are certainly very sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience. It is unfortunate that you struggled to hear the commentary, normally this is not an issue in our 8 seat vehicle and our guides ask if everyone can hear at the start of the tour. Regarding the van, we would like to make it clear for... More

We had a full day of interesting activities before the amazing performance of the penguins after a beautiful sunset. Our guide, Dane was extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the flora, fauna and history. He made the day special. I would recommend purchasing the "Penguins Plus" package for viewing more penguins intimately in comfortable setting.

Enjoyed our day with Fred as our guide. He loves what he does and shares his enthusiasm with his guests. Once you get outside of the Melbourne area (1 hour or so) scenery improves. Yes the vistas along the ocean are spectacular and breath taking. Main tourists area's (12 Apostles) are crazy with people, but that's life. Fred took us... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
