Summary of The Day: We'll being our adventure bright and early in the morning as we depart Melbourne and travel over the Westgate Bridge on our way to the Great Ocean Road. The drive in the morning is slightly longer than other tours as you are starting at the end of the road and traveling back to the start to escape the crowds!
The first stop on the Great Ocean Road will be in the country town of Colac for morning tea before heading to the Shipwreck Coast. Here you’ll find the major attractions of Gibson Steps, Loch Ard Gorge and, of course, the 12 Apostles. Not only will there be less people at these stops but the sunlight is better for viewing and photos. Enjoy a picnic lunch at one of these spectacularly breathtaking spots.
Start the drive backwards along the Great Ocean Road as the road begins to run away from the coast line through Great Otway National Park. It is time to stretch your legs on a wonderful guided rainforest walk amongst some of the tallest tree species in the world.
After a short drive the road and ocean meet again in the seaside town of Apollo Bay. From here the road twists along the coast offering spectacular ocean, beach and cliff views. Along this beautiful section of the Great Ocean Road you’ll stop at the small town of Kennett River where your guide will help you spot wild koalas amongst the eucalyptus trees.
Continuing the journey and passing through small sea side towns, make a stop at Memorial Arch, also known as The Great Ocean Road sign, commemorating the workers that built the road. From here head to start of the road (or end of the road on this reverse tour) for a pizza dinner in the town of Torquay, the perfect way to end the reverse journey along the Great Ocean Road.
The tour will end at approximately 9:00pm.
