What you need to know

Get a double-dose of Australian sightseeing with this combined tour that includes 1 day exploring the Great Ocean Road, and another on Phillip Island to view its wildlife up close! Two Aussie travel essentials, both of these destinations are must-visits, and you'll get to witness both firsthand on a comprehensive itinerary spread out over 2 days. On the first day, depart from Melbourne early in the morning and head out to explore the many incredible views, scenic lookout points and natural highlights of the Great Ocean Road - including the iconic 12 Apostles rock formations - as your knowledgeable and friendly driver-guides provide insight on all the geographical and historic essentials along the way. You'll see why this rugged stretch of coast is widely regarded as one of the world's most beautiful scenic drives before ending the day in the coastal town of Torquay where you'll spend the night.

Day two sees you starting with a tasty breakfast and then heading to the nature-rich hotspot of Phillip Island, where you'll be able to take in views of its many picturesque beaches and coves, and come face to face with a host of native wildlife both at the Australian Wildlife Park and then at sunset when the incredibly cute "Penguin Parade" of hundreds of Little Penguins takes place. One of Australia's most memorable natural phenomena, this is an attraction you simply can't find in zoos! At the conclusion of your tour you'll be returned to Melbourne at the end of day 2. Ensure you witness two of Victoria's must-see destinations all for a single reasonable price, and book a Great Ocean Road and Phillip Island tour online today.
