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; walk 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 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.

We had an great time
Esther Hoorn 4 months ago

We had an great time, saw a lot and the tour lady was friendly and took the time to view things. We had plenty of stops to go to the bathroom, and a nice picnic with the group underway back. The Ocean Road was an amazing experience, you have to see it all for yourself. I will definitely book again through Experience OZ - easy and you don't have to drive yourself.

I can't think of a better possible way to spend my first and the only day in Melbourne
Nadezhda Chubko 4 months ago

I can't think of a better possible way to spend my first and the only day in Melbourne, but to go on the Great Ocean Road Tour. I fell in love with this place. Great thanks to our bus driver and a brilliant tour guide, James Brown from Bunyip Tours! If I'll have another day in Melbourne, I'll definitely go on a tour with this company again!

The weather was great
Deasya Yussanto 4 months ago

The weather was great! Amazing view of the Great Ocean Road! David was an amazing driver and guide. Very entertaining all the way so it didn’t feel like a long journey. We did the reversed, and he got us to stop to see Kangaroos. Lunch was good, it’s a proper full lunch!

Brett is fantastic
Ken Jorolan 6 months ago

Brett is fantastic! His sheer love on the places around the Great Ocean Road is infectious. He gave us great insights, stories, historical facts, and even humor throughout the day! Lunch is good with several options. Drop off back to our respective hotels is value-adding!

Had a great long day out
Sharon Mcneish 7 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 9 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 9 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 10 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.
