The drive is incredible not only for its spectacular landscape but for its breathtaking diversity. From rocky cliffs to roaring surf to the serenity of the rain forest, there is so much to see and explore. The very best way to take it all in is through the Great Ocean Road Tour. Bus tours along this glorious coast ensure that you get to experience all that this treasure of Victoria provides. From families to backpackers, Great Ocean Road Tours are the perfect way to take in all the splendor and contrast the coast has to offer.
Your holiday excursion with a Great Ocean Road Tour will begin early since there is so much to see and do. Throughout your sightseeing experience you’ll wind alongside some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches. As you work you way along the coast you’ll see fabled surf beaches, limestone towers, and have the chance to visit with koalas and get up close and personal with colorful birds. While there are plenty of stops along the way, the pace is relaxing and you’ll have plenty of time to take it all in.
Your Great Ocean Road Tour will take to famous Bells Beach, a favorite of world class surfers. You’ll visit Port Campbell National Park. Here you’ll see the famous 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, and London Bridge. These natural wonders are not to be missed. You can even choose to break from your Melbourne tour and enjoy a helicopter ride to see Port Campbell from above. As your day moves along you’ll visit Otways rainforest and be able to take a leisurely stroll among the giant hardwood trees and fragrant eucalyptus trees. You’ll be able to spend some time with the locals when you stop for lunch in quaint Apollo Bay.
The best Great Ocean Road Tours use small buses so that you can navigate areas where larger charters used by many day tours just can’t go. The small group size ensures that you get the chance to take advantage of the knowledge of the tour guide. As you work your way along you’ll have plenty of opportunity to take photos for your holiday album. You can capture snapshots of white sandy beaches, mind boggling surf, and breathtaking cliffs. You will certainly want to make sure that you have plenty of documentation of this unique travel experience. But this is much more than just a quick stop here and there for snapshots. You’ll have plenty of time to explore each and every highlight along the way.

But regardless of whether the Twelve Apostles, the crashing waves, or the adorable koalas made the strongest impression you’ll know that this is a guided tour that you’ll never forget. At the end of your long day you’ll be tired but happy. Your vacation in Melbourne is complete. You’ve gotten the full experience of the Great Ocean Road.
