By land and by air – the ultimate way to experience the breathtaking coastline of the Great Ocean Road

Discovering the Great Ocean Road by land and by air is the ultimate way to experience one of the world’s most incredible coastlines.

Your journey begins at Bells Beach – Australia’s celebrated surfing mecca and home to the world’s oldest and most prestigious surfing event, The Rip Curl Pro. Spot mobs of lazy kangaroos basking in the morning sun and pass through seaside towns before arriving at Split-Point Lighthouse for a morning tea with panoramic views on the cliff-top.

Travel in comfort along the Great Ocean Road winding past carved cliffs, windswept beaches and hidden swimming holes to the seaside hamlet of Kennett River, where you can get up close to colourful native parrots and observe koalas dozing in gumtrees.

Following a lunch of fresh seafood and regional produce in the popular coastal village of Apollo Bay, continue touring as the road forges inland through the lush verdant gullies and towering ancient forest of the Great Otway National Park.

The dramatic coastline of the Shipwreck Coast brings you to the highlight of the day – the rugged splendour of the Twelve Apostles. Stroll the cliff-edge boardwalk for the perfect vantage point to see these magnificent limestone stacks rise majestically from the Southern Ocean. Venture on to Loch Ard Gorge – one of the most dramatically beautiful beaches in Australia – and discover tales of tragedy and heroism at the site where the Victorian-era clipper famously sunk in 1878.

After an invigorating day touring the Great Ocean Road from the land, board a private helicopter for a scenic 75-minute flight that follows the dramatic coastline from above, before a breathtaking landing on the Yarra River in the very heart of Melbourne.
