Great Ocean Road Adventure - Private Tour - Reverse

Our unique itinerary ensures you avoid the crowds by travelling in a reverse 'direction' missing the bus crowds and enjoying the softer morning light. We head straight to the 12 Apostles for a mid morning spectacle before exploring the coastline. On the way we drop in at a local 'Chocolate Farm' for Australian farm experience and some coffee or sweets.

Your expert guide will take you down to the beach along the Loch Ard Gorge and explain the dramatic shipwreck story. Then we wind our way through Otway Ranges taking in a Rainforest walk before settling into our seaside cafe and enjoying a fresh, locally inspired gourmet lunch. After lunch we take you to one of the best ice-creameries in Australia.

Afterwards traverse the Surfcoast Shire along the coastal road that meanders through beach towns and cliff edges, stopping at significant photo sights.

along the way. You will discover our unique wildlife of wild Koala's in Kennet River and Kangaroo's at the Anglesea golf course.
