Great 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 Princes Highway to Geelong. From there you make your way through the towns of Angelsea, Torquay. Morning tea is at Bells Beach, famous for the Rip Curl Pro Surfing competition. There are a host of places where you will have the opportunity to take photos along the famous Great Ocean Road.
Take 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. Enjoy the 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.
Take afternoon tea at Port Campbell and then on to the remains of London Bridge.
You 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.
