See all the wonders of the magical Great Ocean Road WITHOUT fighting the crowds on this "reverse" tour that takes the standard route backwards. Starting from the far end of the Great Ocean Road, you'll get uninhibited views of the iconic 12 Apostles rock formations earlier in the day - guaranteeing you some great photo opportunities of these beautiful icons - and then continue on through the lush rainforest of the Otways National Park. Along the way, you'll have a much clearer road uncrowded with other vehicles and be able to take in other essential highlights on the route - including the Loch Ard Gorge, Apollo Bay, coastal lookout points and more in a much more pleasant and exclusive manner.

Take in the informative and entertaining commentary from your experienced guide along the way, and come away with a whole new appreciation for what is widely considered one of the world's most beautiful scenic drives. This full day tour is great value for money and includes morning tea and lunch as well as all park entry fees and is ideal for those who prefer a more stress-free tour of the Great Ocean Road.

Sri Durga VENKATASUBRAMANIAN 1 month ago Great value of money. Stunning scenaries and the reverse tour was very helpful as it avoided the usual crowds in the places of attraction. Food was also good and the tour guide was very helpful and friendly. This is something not to be missed in Melbourne.

This is definitely a tour worth doing
Francesca Worboys 12 months ago

This is definitely a tour worth doing. The reverse order of the trip meant we missed the bulk of the crowds at all the viewing points along the way. Although the weather at the beginning of the day (when we went to the 12 apostles etc.) was pretty rubbish, the views were still breathtaking and we managed to get some great photos. This day was fully packed with things to see, such as plenty of viewing points of different rock formations, rainforest tour, a stop off at a little town with the opportunity to get ice cream from an award-winning ice cream shop ( even with gluten-free cones! And vegemite ice cream!). Also a stop off at the Great Ocean Road sign and at areas where you could spot some koalas and kangaroos. Our tour guide was super informative and had many facts both about Australia in general and the areas we were visiting which made the trip even more enjoyable and interesting. The pizza you get included with the tour is superb (gluten-free options are available for those who need them) with the opportunity to eat it on the beach which was a plus for us. Overall we think the trip was excellent and very smoothly run in order to make sure we made the most of our time.

The reverse route to the Great Ocean Road avoided the crowds at all stops and reasonable time was allowed for each stop

The reverse route to the Great Ocean Road avoided the crowds at all stops and reasonable time was allowed for each stop. We didn't take the helicopter at the Twelve Apostles coz we want to take more photos at the lookout. So it all depends on your own preference. (The direction of sunlight was just perfect for taking photo in this reverse route, highly recommended if you like to snap a lot.) Seeing two wild koalas high on the trees was a bonus coz it is not guaranteed. Our guide was entertaining along the long drive. The pizzas at dinner were tasty too.

Great tour
Patty 3 years ago

Great tour. Darren knew a lot and amused us with stories on what happened with or at the different places we visited. I liked it a lot!

Avoid the crowds by doing the Great Ocean Road in reverse - meaning you'll get uninhibited views of all the highlights!
