Rediscover Serenity: The Great Ocean Road Reverse EcoTour

Embark on a captivating journey from Melbourne, where you sidestep the bustle and enjoy the iconic coastal landscapes in their natural tranquillity. Departing from the dynamic heart of Melbourne, your day begins with a scenic drive to the Shipwreck Coast, where you'll marvel at the breathtaking 12 Apostles sans the usual crowd. This awe-inspiring formation, with limestone stacks rising majestically from the Southern Ocean, was in fact once connected to the mainland but eroded over time.

As you enjoy your complimentary morning tea, your experienced guide will reveal tales of the region's past, enriching your understanding of these natural wonders. Expect to be further dazzled by the pristine beach of Loch Ard Gorge and the striking rock formations of Mutton Bird Island and Razorback Lookout, which offer sweeping views of the coastline. Famous for its tragic shipwreck story, Loch Ard Gorge is named after a ship, the Loch Ard, that ran aground nearby in the late 1800s.

From Ancient Rainforest to Iconic Memorial

Journeying onwards, you'll immerse yourself in the ancient rainforest of Maits Rest or Melba Gully in the Great Otway National Park. As you wander through some of the world's tallest trees, keep your eyes peeled for koalas nestled in the Eucalyptus, a sight that is quintessentially Australian. Your journey continues along the Great Ocean Road, constructed by returning World War I soldiers. The Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch, a tribute to these soldiers, is a testament to this region's rich history. As the day concludes, relish a delicious picnic-style lunch while you reflect on the glorious sites visited. With its blend of stunning natural beauty, fascinating history, and unique wildlife, this reverse tour is an unforgettable way to experience Australia's iconic Great Ocean Road.
