Great Ocean Road Day Trip | 29 February

Enjoy one of the world’s most spectacular coastal drives with the MGA!

We will pass Torquay on the way to morning tea at Bells Beach. Then we will wind along the Great Ocean Road enjoying the awesome coastal scenery and stunning photo opportunities.

We hope to see some koalas in their natural habitat before stopping at Apollo Bay for a picnic lunch.

After lunch, we will take a short walk through a magnificent ancient rainforest where we’ll see some of the world’s tallest trees in the Otway National Park. Then back on the bus heading for the main attraction – The Twelve Apostles.

On the way home we’ll make a quick stop at the township of Colac for dinner (at own expense).
