Travelling on Victoria’s heritage-listed Great Ocean Road is one of the greatest road trips you can have in Australia. Our Great Ocean Road Private fully customiseable tour features amazing scenery, stories and wildlife in a leisurely drive that will have you gasping at every turn.

We have a fleet of 9, 11 or 13 seater buses for your group and the price is for the driver/guide and vehicle, not per person. The larger the group, the better the value. The tour is fully customised and pick up is from your accommodation. We stop often and avoid the crowds, living up to our motto of ‘Let the others rush!’.
