  • Fully day Great Ocean Road Tour
  • Light Aussie lunch
  • Stunning coastal views
  • The 12 Apostles
  • Loch Ard Gorge
  • Drive through the Otway Rainforest

Experience all of the essential highlights of one of the world's most scenic drives - Victoria's Great Ocean Road - for an extremely reasonable price on this full day Great Ocean Road tour from Melbourne. Departing from the Melbourne CBD early in the morning ready for a solid day of spectacular coastal highlights, you'll be taken aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned coach to witness a number of the individual wonders that make this stretch of the Victorian coastline so spectacular, ranging from renowned surfing hotspots, to iconic landmarks and all culminating in some truly incredible rock formations.

Along the way you'll pass through some of the region's renowned and charming coastal towns such as Lorne and Apollo Bay, while making several stops to get out and see some of the essential sights up close. Keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife along the way; disembark and enjoy an included barbecue lunch alongside the oldest lighthouse on mainland Australia at Cape Otway; take a stroll along the ruggedly beautiful beaches of the Shipwreck Coast with its photogenic Loch Ard Gorge formation; and have it all capped off with one of Australia's most spectacular views: the towering Apostles rock formations from their famed viewing platform. This is one of Oz's most essential travel photos, and a sight you'll remember for years to come!

With a number of great inclusions such as lunch and refreshments, all National Park entry fees, and even complimentary hotel transfers, this Great Ocean Road tour is one of the most budget-friendly ways to explore this must-see part of Australia.

After reaching Melbourne I decided to go to the Great Ocean Road. I saw this tour on Experience Oz so I chose it. At 7 am I headed to the meeting point as in the voucher. Greeted with the guide who was all happy and excited we hit the road.. Seat was comfortable. the views on the road were amazing even before we reached our destination. The weather was helpful and I joined two friends who I just met in a tea and buscuit breakfast offered by the guide in our relax small break in the tour.. The views were amazing luch was delicious. I saw 6 cows in their natural home. The coast, the beach was good to dive with your feet in it.. we fed some wild birds too and took pictures with them.. Overall it was really nice and I want to do it one more time for my next visit to Melbourne.

Patrice Mailfert | 7 months ago

Amazing tour! I was a bit worried it would be too much sitting in the bus but it was definitely worth it. All the operators do the same tour so this one is worth saving you some money.

Chun Wai Chan | 7 months ago

I booked the trip a day before as to use and I have to say its a wonderful experience! Shoutout to Cameroon for being an amazing tour guide! Highly recommend it to people who wants a fast one day trip to Great Ocean Road!

Katelin | 10 months ago

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We were well looked after and well fed and got to spend an appropriate amount of time at each attraction along the way. The sights were breath taking and can only be truly appreciated by being there in the flesh. This should be on any travellers "to do" list while they're in Aussie.

Tamika | 12 months ago

The tour was amazing and our guide Greg was super friendly and informative. I liked that the bus was small because it gave us all a chance to chat with everyone on board. I will be recommending this to everyone I know!! :)

Top tips

"Be sure to take your camera as some of the sights you will see on this tour are spectacular. Also take some warm clothes as the weather can change quite quickly, especially in the cooler months."
