TOP EXPERIENCES

World Famous Surf Beaches

The Great Ocean Road has famous surf beaches as well as surf history. Home to Rip Curl, Billabong and the Australian National Surfing Museum, you have to stop in Torquay.

Beach Meets The Rainforest

Lush rainforest to your right and world-class beaches to your left, you’ll be feeling pretty blessed. For true Australian authenticity, the water is full of surfers and the trees are full of koalas!

The Impressive 12 Apostles

Despite the photos you’ve seen of the 12 Apostles, nothing can prepare you for how spectacular these towering limestone structures along the rugged Victorian coastline really are.

The Grampians National Park

The unsung hero of this road trip, with Aboriginal culture, an abundance of scenic hikes and so many sunset and sunrise viewpoint options. This place really is incredible.

WHERE YOU'LL STAY

You don’t want to be worrying about accommodation, you just want to be taking in the road trip of a lifetime. 

We’ve organised your hostel accommodation in the Grampians National Park, Port Fairy, Apollo Bay and Queenscliff.

ITINERARY

What time is it? Road trip time! We’ll give you the details for your car pickup and an advised itinerary and you and the crew are on your way! As long as you have a driving licence* you’re able to drive.

The first stop is the awe-inspiring Grampians National Park. We guarantee you will lose count of how many kangaroos you see here. The Grampians is also a great spot for hikes as well as lookout points, one of which we’ll recommend to you for sunset.

*Your Driving license must say ‘Driving License’ in English. If it doesn’t please bring an International License or a certified translation of your license.

Rise and shine, time to experience your first Australian sunrise. You’ll have plenty of time to get some sleep on the drive so make sure you’re out of bed to experience this.

Later that morning you’ll make your way to the end of the Great Ocean Road, hopefully seeing some emus and koalas on the way to your destination for the night, the quirky town of Port Fairy.

Today is the day you take in the majority of what is known as the Shipwreck Coast. This drive is something else and it is even better if you beat the crowds in the morning. This will also serve you well for when you get to the 12 Apostles, as well as London Bridge, Gibson Steps and Loch Ard Gorge – all iconic landmarks on this spectacular road trip.

Tonight you’ll stay in the liveliest town on the trip, Apollo Bay which has one of the most beautiful beaches lining the entire town.

You’ve left the Shipwreck Coast behind and now you’re driving along the Surf Coast, don’t worry, the views are just as special. Not only can you visit cool towns like Lorne, there are inland walks and hikes to waterfalls and a chance to spot koalas in the wild. 

There’s only one more thing to do that day, send us the photo of you and your group of mates under the famous Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch!

Group surf lesson in Torquay

You’ll wake up in Queenscliff, a small town close to Torquay, a town known for its surf culture due to it hosting the Rip Curl Pro (part of the World Surf League) every Easter. We have friends everywhere and can easily organise for you to hire a board and wetsuit while you’re in town. 

Post morning surf it’s time to head back to Melbourne to reflect on the best two weeks of your life. You may even want to hit the bar crawl again and join this week’s Welcome to Melbourne group for one last big Melbourne night as a group.

We’re not your average tour company. We care about inspiring you, helping you and supporting you. We’ll be here to help you with absolutely anything for the whole time that you’re in Australia, not just before your tour.

It is all about being part of our Welcome to Travel Family.

IS THIS TOUR FOR YOU?

You don’t know them now, but you’ll make friends for life on your Welcome to Melbourne tour. Make sure your time with them doesn’t end early and join them for a road trip you’ll remember forever.

Roads were made for journeys, not destinations.
