Starting locations

Our pick up locations are very flexible. We can pick you up from Avalon Airport. We can also collect clients from Hotels/AirBnb's in Melbourne CBD, Docklands and Southbank, or even from international cruise terminals.

Pick up times will vary as required by our clients, but we do recommend early starts for single day tours.

We have two different types of touring vehicle dependant upon your group size. 

Our vehicles all have comfy seating, air conditioning, tinted windows with added UV protection, privacy shades for all rear seats, USB ports for i-phone charging & free wifi onboard. Complimentary Wifi & bottled water is also provided.

For groups of 1-3 in size, we use a Hyundai Santa Fe Highlander (replacing our outgoing X5). For larger groups (up to 5 guests) we use a Kia Carnival Platinum. Our vehicles are classed as commercial including the relevant insurance.

Australian Government regulations prohibit smoking and the drinking of alcohol inside tourist vehicles in Australia. Frequent stops for toilet breaks and smoking breaks can be arranged as required.



Meals are not provided but can be purchased at many cafes and restaurants along the way.  Meal times are flexible depending on the needs of the guests. Complimentary bottled water, fruit & basic snacks are supplied on all trips.


What to wear

In Victoria weather conditions change rapidly especially along the Great Ocean Road and in the Otway Ranges. 

For tours during summer we suggest you still bring some clothing appropriate for cold weather. If you intend to walk bring sturdy walking shoes, sunscreen lotion and a hat.

Customise Your Own Tour Experience

We have have had many years of experience running tours in

this area, and will always try and showcase it at its best. Our 

aim is to make sure you don't miss any of the famous landmark 

attractions (such as The 12 Apostles) but we will also show you

places of the beaten track, which you won't find in a guide book 

and just as beautiful.

However, if you have any specific interests (such as wildlife

photography) we can customise your tour experience around

this. Simply get in touch with us prior to booking so we can 

create a unique tour catered to your tastes and interests.

We can't wait to share this special area with you!
