Location

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.

Had a great long day out
Sharon Mcneish 2 months ago

Had a great long day out. Chris the driver was friendly and informative. We have approx 8 stops with each being more than adequate for what was on at that stop. We have seen a lot more than when we did the great ocean road tour ourselves. Hence why we thought we would do a tour. The group was small lunch was provided and more than ample. Definitely would use Experience Oz again! The whole booking process was easy and the trip enjoyable.

Our guide James was really nice and the lunch was good too
XinYi Ng 4 months ago

Our guide James was really nice and the lunch was good too! One catch was the bus was all filled to the brim until the very last seat so it was a little squeezy but otherwise everything was great! Nice experience overall! Would totally recommend this tour to other people.

Our bus driver was amazing
Francesca Griffiths 4 months ago

Our bus driver was amazing, not only did he gives us lots of information about the tour, the areas and the wildlife he also gave us information about Melbourne, which helped us with the rest of our trip. He also gave us places to go along the way in Australia.

This was an amazing tour
Charlotte Bussell 5 months ago

This was an amazing tour. Thanks so much to our guide Joon for taking us and his care, attention and good humour throughout. The trip was packed full of stunning and contrasting sites from beaches to rainforests. Highlights for me were the 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and meeting a koala. I definitely recommend this tour.

This was a great tour
Stephen Marcok 6 months ago

This was a great tour, really glad that I did it. Our guide was friendly and happy. The day has a lot of driving but it has frequent stops and fantastic scenery that makes it a lot of fun. You will get out of the bus a lot to see beaches, wildlife (koalas and native birds), photo stops. The 12 apostles themselves are beautiful. Well worth the money!

I went on the great ocean road tour and it was AMAZING
Kaitlin Dunn 8 months ago

I went on the great ocean road tour and it was AMAZING. I have never seen anything like it. I would love to do it again on my own but I'm so glad I did it through Experience Oz the first time! We got to stop at so many incredible places and at times when it wasn't packed with tourists. Greg - our tour guide was so bubbly and friendly from 7 am - 8 pm and seems to genuinely love what he does. I don't know how he did it, I definitely couldn't. He had so many interesting facts for us to learn about and really cared about giving us the best possible experience.

After reaching Melbourne I decided to go to the Great Ocean Road
Moza Albreiki 1 year ago

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.

Amazing tour
Patrice Mailfert 1 year 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.
