Ocean Road Tour Melbourne
This is probably one of the most spectacular tours that can be taken
from Melbourne along what is called the "Ship Wreck Coast"
to the south west of Melbourne. With breathtaking views and stops at
famous places such as Bells Beach and Apollo Bay, this is a tour for
those that love sightseeing.
I think this tour is awesome and take it every time I spend a few days in Melbourne. I see something new each time I take the tour. Something I missed previously.
From Melbourne you travel out over the West Gate Bridge and along the
Highway to Geelong. From there you make your way through the towns
of Angelsea and Torquay.
Morning tea is at Bells Beach, famous for the
Curl Pro Surfing competition. This is just one of a host of places where you
will have the opportunity to take photos along the famous Great Ocean
lunch at the beautiful town of Apollo Bay. I suggest the Fish n Chips, then it's off for some of
the more famous sights that are along the great Ocean Road.
12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, Razorback and learn of the misery and loss
of life along the coast due to shipwrecks during wild weather.
There is an optional helicopter flight at the 12 Apostles stop, which
is well worth taking for those that can afford the extra cost. Fabulous
views from the air of these great natural monuments. And a great chance to get some photographs from a different angle.
Take afternoon tea at Port
Campbell and then on to the remains of London Bridge.
can see London Bridge image at the top of page before it fell down.
Two people were stranded on the the tip and had to be airlifted to safety.
Would have been amazing to see it fall down but a bit scary to be trapped
on the remaining column.
This stop rounds off a fantastic day which I would consider the best
tour I have ever taken. Make sure you put some sunscreen on as you can
get windburn along the coast even during winter.
