What you can expect

Be inspired by the natural beauty of Victoria's Great Ocean Road on this scenic hiking day tour from Melbourne. Stand side by side with the iconic 12 Apostles, hike through ancient rainforest at the Great Otway National Park, embrace the Californian Redwood forest and explore the charming villages that dot the coastline. Starting early with a pickup from Melbourne, the day tour will take you straight to the 12 Apostles before the crowds appear for a peaceful stroll along the boardwalk marvelling at the limestone structures at eye level. There is even time to walk the cliffside pathway to the remote beach below for a closer view of the towering structures.

After the long drive it's time to stretch the legs on a hike through the Otway rainforest to Beauchamp Falls. Later a visit to Kennett River, Apollo Bay and Bells Beach complete a full day of exploration touring the Great Ocean Road. If you are looking for a day tour that combines incredible natural scenery, iconic landmarks, scenic drives and hiking then this is it.
