Visit Torquay and Surf Beach            

The town where Australian Surf culture began in the sixties. Hear the story of Rip Curl
our most noted Australian Company who has their headquarters here.      

  • We drive along the western plains to the Coastal town
    of Torquay (Drive 80 minutes)

  • Visit the famous Torquay surf beach where we enjoy a
    BLT burger for breakfast (included in tour; you are on holidays so why not!)
    and a hot drink form the container café overlooking this popular beach. Please
    be advised this is Torquay Australia if the surf is an 8 out of 10 most things
    close for the day and we will have to find somewhere else!  


Kangaroo spotting in Anglesea         

This is a place where we have a very good chance to spot for wild eastern grey Kangaroo
through our native bushland reserve 

  • We drive for 30 minutes making a small detour from the
    Ocean Road to spot for wild Kangaroo in their natural environment – The Great
    Aussie Bushland

  • Discover unique Kangaroo facts and understand why it
    is estimated we have more Kangaroos in Australia than people  


Split Point Lighthouse and Coastal vantage lookout            

Step back in time to an era when sailing ships dominated the oceans and light houses were
an essential part of navigation.

  • We arrive at the Split Point Light House around 10:45
    am and take a short walk up to the structure while exploring our past seafaring
    achievements and wrecks some past and present.

  • Take in the coastal views over Bass Straight from the
    shore


Memorial Arch

Indulge with an entertaining Aussie yarn about the making of the Great Ocean Road and stop
at the Memorial Arch  

  • After a ten-minute drive, we do a quick stop at the
    Memorial Arch. It is a tradition in my family on every Great Ocean Road trip
    and a must see historical monument


Erskine Falls and scenic Ocean Road  

Drive the winding ocean road for thirty minutes. Spot for the earths only “House on the
Cliff on the Great Ocean Road”

  • We drive thirty minutes along the scenic section of
    the Ocean Road and into the cool temperate hinterland. We visit the Erskine
    Falls lookout and have the option to walk to the lower lookout – Short but
    steep steps. Spot for Koala through this area while we drive and witness our
    ancient greenery of the Otway ranges.


Lorne Seaside Resort   

Spend time exploring this seaside resort at your leisure for lunch but not before
receiving the Aussie Blokes local tips  

  • Pull up a deck chair and have a light lunch relaxing
    at a quiet beachside café or explore the resort town of Lorne for formal
    dining. Watch long boarders tame the point break or dip the toes (swimming advised!)
    into the Southern Ocean! (lunch is flexible and at own expense)

  • We spend until 2:30 in town (estimated 1:15 minutes)


Spot for Wild Koala   

We visit Teddies lookout and spot for wild Koala that have been known to frequent the area if we haven’t seen any by now!  

  • Spot for wild Koala by exploring everything Koala and
    follow in their footsteps, to understand this unique Australian native  


Turn for Home back to the Ship   

We leave the region at 3:30 for a two-hour drive back to the cruise ship     

  • We drive along the highway, possible past Buckley Rd
    through an area that played a very Signiant role in the regions Aboriginal
