Tour description provided by Viator

Experience the spectacular Great Ocean Road on a full-day tour from Melbourne. Your small, personalized eco tour takes you by comfortable minibus along the winding Great Ocean Road to Kennett River, where you're guaranteed to spot koalas in their native habitat. The Great Ocean Road eco tour continues to the Otway Ranges for strolls at Maits Rest panoramic rainforest walk.

World-famous Port Campbell National Park is the next stop on your Great Ocean Road small group tour, with its iconic array of offshore rock formations known as the Twelve Apostles. Here you have the option of taking a helicopter ride to see the magnificent coastline from the air.

The Great Ocean Road small group eco tour continues along the Shipwreck Coast to Loch Ard Gorge, site of many shipwrecks. The gorge is named for the Loch Ard which went down in 1878, sparing just two lives. Your final destination on your Great Ocean Road tour is London Bridge. Your return journey includes a stop for dinner (at own expense) and stunning views of the lights of Melbourne as you cross the West Gate Bridge at the end of your long day tour.
