Enjoy the two most popular day tours from Melbourne in a small group of up to 11 passengers and package these two day trips together to get extra value and make the most of your time in Melbourne. On one day, you will travel to the iconic Great Ocean Road where your guide will take you to the best hiding spots for koalas and kangaroos and give you time to take in the incredible scenery. On your Phillip Island day trip, the famous penguin parade will lure you to the island but the Phillip Island Tour with Oceania Tours will allow you to discover so much more, including: Moonlit Sanctuary, the Nobbies, Woolamai Surf beach (time permitting) and of course, the island’s black tie gala event: the Penguin Parade.
Pick up and drop off to your Melbourne hotel is included for both days, accommodation is not included.
What You'll Get
Over two separate days you will experience the best natural destinations outside of Melbourne. On both tours there will be a maximum of 11 people in your group so you will have plenty of opportunities to ask your guide questions and get to know your fellow travelers.
Great Ocean Road Day Trip
For your day along the Great Ocean Road, your guide will pick you up from your hotel to experience the majestic coastal drive. You will travel in style with your small group and enjoy time to relax and fully appreciate the wonders of this world famous route.
You will have time to stroll along the wild beaches or stop for a coffee at the striking Split Point Lighthouse and take in the awe-inspiring scenery. You will stop at Apollo Bay, a tranquil seaside town set amongst the soft rolling hills, offering a great selection of cafes and restaurants where you can stop for lunch (not included).
This tour provides exclusive access to an ancient Eucalyptus Forest walk, located at the iconic Great Ocean Road Ecolodge where you can have close encounters with koalas, kangaroos and native birds and as passengers, you will be contributing to the conservation program to protect the local fauna and flora.
A truly unique day out, capped off by a visit to the ancient rock formations of the Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge.
Phillip Island Day Trip (must be taken within 7-days of your Great Ocean Road day trip)
Your unforgettable day will commence with a visit to Moonlit Sanctuary Conservation Park where you are guaranteed plenty of close encounters with an array of Australian native animals like kangaroos, wombats and echidnas.
We will then head to Phillip Island where, time/season permitting, we will take you to Woolamai Surf Beach to catch a glimpse of the awesome waves and die-hard surfers. We then travel over to the dramatic west coast of the island.
At the Nobbies, you will stroll along the boardwalk to experience the waves crashing along this dramatic coastline and perhaps spot a few seals and some penguin nests.
A trip to Phillip Island is not complete without its black tie gala event: the Penguin Parade. You will head to the Visitor Centre to shop, have a coffee and meander along the boardwalk to the viewing platform where you will see the little penguins come ashore, decked out in their tuxedos as they hurry off to find their burrows.
