Amazing! 4.7/5 lastminute.com.au Guest Rating

Miles of rugged beaches, wave-carved rock formations, and dense rainforest await on this full-day adventure along Australia's most famous scenic highway. Cruise along the Great Ocean Road to see icons like the 12 Apostles, stroll beneath towering trees to spot koalas and lorikeets, and linger over lunch in seaside Apollo Bay.

Head out of Melbourne and hit the road—the Great Ocean Road, that is. This 151-mile (243-km) highway winds its way along the southeastern coast of Victoria and is the world's largest war memorial. Your first stop en route is at Surf Beach, where you can enjoy morning tea while watching surfers catch waves before continuing on to Memorial Arch.

From there, stretch your legs with a beach walk before driving on through the seaside resort towns of Lorne and Anglesea. Arrive in Kennett River and venture into the woods to look for koalas perched in the treetops, colourful parrots and lorikeets, and the gum tree-loving kookaburra. In Apollo Bay, relax over lunch as you soak in the atmosphere of this waterfront locale, and then work off your meal with a guided bushwalk through the towering trees that line the Maits Rest board walk in the Otway Ranges, a cool and ancient temperate rainforest.

Keep your camera ready during the next leg of your drive as you make your way to the striking 12 Apostles, limestone stacks rising up from the waves, and Loch Ard Gorge, where you can take a walk while listening to the tale of Australia's most notorious shipwreck. Your final stop is at the arch nicknamed London Bridge or the cliffs known as the Gibson Steps, where you can feel the breeze off the sea before heading back to Melbourne.
