About this tour: 6 Day Take in some of the country's best sights from the height of the Grampians to the shores by the Great Ocean Road Australias
Great Ocean Road is a glorious stretch of land capturing the finer points of Victorias versatile and diverse ecosystems. The iconic bushland and glistening seascapes fuse together to create something greater than the sum of its parts, seen in natural wonders such as the Loch Ard Gorge, the towering 12 Apostles or even the surf beaches of Torquay. Further inland, the towering sandstone ridges of the Grampians offer a view of the land below pristine, undisturbed and authentically Australian. Close enough to comfortable, trendy seaside towns like Lorne yet just far enough from the metropolitan Melbourne to feel the call of the wild, the southern coast is everything you could want from Australia and more.
