    What to Expect
    Day 1: (L,D)

    Start the day with pickup from one of the central locations pointed out to you (Federation Square, St Kilda, North Melbourne, or your CBD hotel). The small group will take turns constructing a playlist of music for the drive as you play games and enjoy plenty of banter along the way.

    Cruising through surf iconic towns such as Torquay, Bells Beach and Anglesea you will then have a 2 hour surf lesson with a surf school. It doesn't matter if you have never tried it before!

    You'll have lunch by the beach consisting of a choice of sandwiches, baguettes and wraps.

    Continue along the road stopping for any photo opportunities you like. Your guides will take you to the historic Great Ocean Road sign and a few beautiful beaches before arriving at Kennet River to see wild Koalas and birds which will fly into your hands!

    Your guides know of a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy a beer where you'll setup to see the sun start to set.

    One last stop at Apollo Bay for any last minute items before heading to your home for the night.... A 22ft Native American Teepee only 328-feet (100-metres) away from the beach. The Teepee site has bathrooms and toilets.

    Enjoy a traditional Aussie BBQ, games, live music and general banter by the campfire in the middle of the Teepee as you sit back and relax or visit one of the local bars close by.

    Day 2: (B)

    The next morning enjoy breakfast and coffee before departing at 9am. Your tour guides will take you to another one of their secret spots, a field of hundreds of Kangaroos.

    Finally arrive at the Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge and take in the serenity.

    Dose off in the van as you head back to Melbourne (3 hours) returning in the CBD at approximately 5:30pm.

    As a solo traveller I didn’t want to end up on some long dragged out bus tour which you didn’t met anyone else and you sat on a bus for the whole time! This was the best tour I have been on in my travels!...More

    That's totally fine, there were a few people who didn't surf in our group. Also - everyone on our tour was a complete beginner, and the lesson is really low key! Super fun!

    They have a giant teepee which is very cool and a fire to keep you warm at night! There is a small house right next to the teepee if you’d rather sleep there and it has a shower and a bathroom so use whenever but I recommend... More
