Great Ocean Road Standard Day Tour (12 Hours)

One Day Tour Itinerary

Your LGBTQ+ Private Tour Departs 7am from your chosen Melbourne Hotel/Accommodation, where we will whisk you off towards the start of the Great Ocean Road to get ahead of the tourist traffic. We aim to stop at all the main highlights along the road, within the 12 hours.

First stop is Bells Beach, one of the world's most famous surfing beaches and home of the Rip Curl Pro is our first stop.

Split Point Lighthouse follows, where you can grab a freshly brewed coffee and home-made croissants by the in-house French Patisserie Chef (Ohh-La-La). The Lighthouse area has great vantage point over gorgeous deserted beaches.


We than pass by the Memorial Arch where you will learn the history behind the road, followed by a search of the Kennet River area for wild koalas and the brightly coloured wild parrots!


A lunch-stop will be made in the pretty coastal township of Apollo Bay.

You will continue the afternoon with a beautiful 25 minute guided rainforest walk at Maits Rest.

Then some scenic touring through the Otway National Park, whilst you keep a keen lookout for wild kangaroos and koala's.

Then onto the famous Rock Formations in the area! You will get to see the two main sites - The 12 Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge.

You will then head back on the road towards Melbourne, via scenic farmland. Returns Melbourne @ 7pm.

*You also have an option (on request only) to extend the trip by an additional hour, which will give you extra sightseeing time on the road. This is only available during the summer months October - March (due to the limited day light hours available). There is a flat fee of $60 for this additional hour. We however always recommend the 2 Day Tour option, which is the perfect duration in which to see the road.

Past Guest Reviews


" Truly amazing 4 day tour. So varied. My friend told me the 2 day tour was one of their highlights from their holiday in Oz. And our 4 day tour with them didn’t disappoint.

Our guide James and driver for the 4 days was so friendly. And he really knew the areas like the back of his hand, despite the vast distance between the different locations. "
