Melbourne: Great Ocean Road and Otway Overnight Tour

2. Melbourne: Great Ocean Road and Otway Overnight Tour

Day 1: Melbourne to Port Campbell (D) You'll begin your tour with a drive through the ancient lava fields of Western Victoria on your way to the country seaside town of Warrnambool. You'll take a detour to Tower Hill on the way, to explore Australia's most recently extinct volcano which is bursting with wildlife. Following that, take a guided walk with Worn Gundidj, learning about the traditional lifestyle of Australia's indigenous people, bush tucker, medicine, and the skills of the boomerang. You'll then drive the Great Ocean Road "backwards", starting with Shipwreck Coast and its icons such as the Bay of Islands, The Grotto, and London Bridge, with time to explore the village of Port Campbell. Try some locally made beers from the Sow & Piglets Brewery with dinner, before finishing off your day at the 12 Apostles for sunset. Day 2: Great Ocean Road to Melbourne (B) The second day starts off with a climb down the stairs onto the beach at Loch Ard Gorge, well before the crowds arrive, for a unique take on this ever-so-popular attraction. It's then off for a stroll along a section of the Great Ocean Walk and down to the beach level at the Apostles at Gibson Steps before retreating into the Otway rainforest. Hidden in a place most don't venture, the Redwoods of the Otways will simply amaze as you admire the tallest and second-tallest species of trees in the world side by side. It's then back on the road to continue the breathtaking coastal drive with quality stops in the townships of Apollo Bay and Lorne to soak in the Aussie beach town lifestyle. You'll have time to check out the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie & Ice-Creamery for some delicious treats, as well as one of the most popular surf beaches in Australia, before heading back to Melbourne at around 7:30PM.

What people are saying about Loch Ard Gorge

It was an amazing trip with stops at so many nice places, I definitely recommend and would do again. Unfortunately we did not see any Koalas (maybe have been on vacation too ;) but all the other places are really worth so see. Our guide Sarah did a very fine job, she drove our "Magic Bus" :) in a very professional way and gave us lots of interesting and helpful information. It's a long trip, so if anybody plans to attend, you'll be very tired when you are back at late night - tired but happy. So guys, don't hesitate, let's go! :)

Really great tour. lots of awesome things to see, beautiful places, many wild koalas etc. Stefan was the perfect guide, felt more like being on a road trip with a good friend. Excellent knowledge about the sites, their history, the wildlife etc. Missing times: pick up 10-11am, return 12-01am in summer (late sunset)

It was really a great trip. Felix, our guide for the day, was super cool and the pictures we were able to see were amazing. There was plenty of time to take photos and enjoy the impressions.

Really great experience! Joel is a great tour guide and provided lots of information about the ocean road. Key tip: bring a jacket! It does get cold and windy

I really enjoyed it. The tour guide who is Sally was more than perfect. She made us very happy and comfortable on all the way. I recommend Go West and Sally.
