Great Ocean Road Two Day Private Tour
Price $1950 for a small group tour up to 13 passengers
Considered one of the best coastal drives in the world, the Great Ocean Road is a must-see for visitors to Victoria. This 244-kilometre-long stretch of road meanders through secret bays, imposing sandstone cliffs, lush rain forests and deserted beaches.
A two-day private, small group tour with Melbourne Touring Company is a leisurely way to see all this region has to offer. Let the others rush while your group explores awe-inspiring mountain panoramas at a relaxed pace. The tour hugs the coast where natural archways, gorges and grottos abound.
You can explore quaint seaside towns, take a short rainforest walk and spot Australian wildlife. The tour highlight is the Twelve Apostles, where you'll see the magnificent limestone sea stacks from the cliff top as well as the beach. On our tour, you can sit back and enjoy the scenery, with regular stops for photos and to spot wildlife.
Your experienced guide will tell you stories of dramatic rescues and tall tales of shipwrecks. Your private tour can be completely customised to your interests and requirements. Or you can follow our successful, proven itinerary.
