Pass through quaint yet popular holiday resort towns before your guide takes you on a wild koala spotting adventure among their natural habitat of the eucalyptus trees.

Hear about the coastline's most famous shipwreck before stepping down into the gorge at the center of the story of the Loch Ard ill-fated journey.

We couldn’t have asked for more from our tour guide Lucy, it was her first tour as a guide to the Grampians and she did an awesome job. You spend lots of time on the coach, but it’s filled with facts about the day / surrounding area and obviously there is plenty to see as your driving around. The hikes were great fun and really well chosen. MacKenzie Falls was definitely a highlight, along with getting up close to the Kangaroos at Halls Gap! I would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a fun, well guided, scenic day out.

This has been one of the best wine tours I’ve ever been on. Ben, our tour guide was so lovely and extremely knowledgeable. Tasted 6-8 wines at both of the wineries we visited. Pizza for lunch, and cupcakes at a local sweet shop was the perfect pit stop. Finish the day at a fantastic distiller. Couldn’t ask for better.

The tour is worth it on all levels! You get to see all the important points of the Great Ocean Road and can get a good impression of the diversity of the coast in a very short time. The time for the stops was measured very well. The guide was local and enriched this tour a lot!

Fun thing to do in Melbourne.In the bar you wear eskimo poncho and gloves.All your drinks are in ice glass!Fun barman. Recommended for everyone

Seeing koalas in the wild then an unexpected sight of kangaroos
