Australia’s Great Ocean Road is legendary; a road that hugs the side of sheer cliffs, and where native bushland meets the clear blue waters of the most spectacular coastline. Take a full-day journey along this miraculous road, and enter a land of mighty rock formations. Hear tales of shipwrecks along the coast, and get breathtaking vistas around every corner.

The 12-hour tour has everything from rainforest walks to koala spotting in the wild. You will travel in a small coach, with a maximum of 21 passengers, allowing for a more personalized service throughout the day.
