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, a coastal lookout at Mutton Bird Island and Razorback Lookout in a much more pleasant and exclusive manner. Then, enjoy a guided walk through Maits Rest or Melba Gully, an ancient rainforest admiring some of the world’s tallest trees in the Great Otway National Park. We continue our journey along this spectacular National Heritage listed road winding between hillsides, pristine beaches, stunning ocean views and dense rainforest. Local guides will try to seek out the iconic Australian koala, as this coastal region is heavily populated with these furry creatures hidden within the pockets of Eucalyptus forests. The final stop of the day will be the Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch, one of the most photographed spots along this rugged coastline. 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.
Great tour, awesome guide, good variety. Well worth the money.
It was a great tour and the guide was excellent! Super knowledgeable, friendly, thoughtful and just awesome; especially his sidekick Barry! Only my downfall was that my ticket clearly said pickup at 7:35 but they called me at 7 wondering where I was so I had to dash and I ended up forgetting things in my room. Would definitely recommend this tour though! We ended up having great weather which made it even better.
Love the tour guide
Love the tour guide. Tim is so accommodating and friendly. Would love to recommend this to our friends and family. Reverse Great Ocean Road is such a good idea, there’s not much hustle as we reach 12 Apostles. It was so beautiful and amazing. Lucky to have seen 5 koalas as well during this trip.
The reserve tour was such a good idea
The reserve tour was such a good idea! We had Troy as our tour guide and he was absolutely great! Despite the weather being windy, he calmly took us through the great ocean road drive and managed to hit all the great spots. Got to take really nice photos of the locations without the crowds. However cold sandwiches on a cold season weren't really warming for the soul, nonetheless, pretty good!
