Join us for a personalised experience of the Great Ocean Road on a small-group day trip from Melbourne, limited to 4 people. Ideal for visitors with limited time and wanting to explore highlights of the Surfcoast and a taste of the Otways National Park. This guided tour transports you to the Great Ocean Road with ease ready to enjoy short walks to spectacular vantage points. Stop at Bells Beach, Point Addis, Split Point Lighthouse, Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch, Lorne, Teddys Lookout and Erskine Falls along the way. This immersive itinerary offers a relaxed alternative to the 3 hr + journey to the 12 Apostles. You will see often overlooked vistas that require a smaller vehicle to visit and short walks to get to (the photos will be some of the highlights of your trip!). Travelling in the luxury of a Mercedes tourer means you can feel comfortable throughout your journey to and from Melbourne.
