The Great Ocean Road is a big trip for one day, many tour companies will not share the fact that to see the 12 apostles is a 545km return drive no matter who you choose to travel with! There is much more to experience than just some rocks jutting out of the water as amazing as they are, fresh produce, wine and off the main path hidden lookouts are plentiful. Crowding with day trips are becoming an issue even in winter. Should your travel plans allow we recommend spending more time with our combined tours for an authentic experience.

On tour with the Aussie Bloke
A special place is held in my heart for the great ocean road. My earliest childhood memory as a four year old is of camping along the road in the late 70's. I've designed a tour from my intimate knowledge that highlights the scenic beauty, diversity and uniqueness of this spectacular drive. We travel slow enough to fully enjoy the wild ocean beaches, rugged coastal scenery and the rainforest hinterland that is the Great Ocean Road.
Our Travel Options
Enjoy our Aussie delights with morning tea at an undisclosed beachside location where the Aussie bloke first learned to surf. I can't tell you where it is as all of the other tour companies will discover this spot!
Just a quick stop at this spot. Take some photos of the Memorial arch with time to reflect towards those who built the road after hearing the Aussie Blokes unique insight and yarn or two!
The most scenic of the days driving we wind our way alongside the coast and through quaint seaside villages like Lorne. Sometimes we will see the long boarders surfing off of the famous Lorne point.
There are many opportunities to spot for wild Koalas. We stop at the village of Kennet river where we have time to enjoy a coffee and take a walk looking for wildlife, birds and of course Koala.
A magnificent horseshoe shaped sweeping bay protected from the wild Southern Ocean swells Apollo Bay is a must stop for any Great Ocean Road journey. It is a great town for lunch (own expense).
Step back in time and witness tall trees as we uncover the marvels and secrets that is the Otway National Park. This short walk through our native and unique natural environment is often the highlight for guests!
Stand on the southern edge of Australia and watch the waves pound against the sheer cliff faces of the Port Campbell national park. It's difficult to understand how these gravity defying rock stacks have stood up to the relentless fury of the ocean. How many are left?
For a different perspective of the Ship wreck coast and to hear an Aussie yarn of wild ocean survival we spend enough time here to explore the area to its fullest. We have time to visit the George, Island Archway and Razorback lookouts. Simply stunning.
Another unique natural rock formation and stunning coastal vantage point London Bridge holds a special spot in the Aussie bloke's heart. No trip to the Great Ocean road is complete without seeing this formation and understanding the fascinating story about its demise.
