Geelong, there is so much to see and do.
Full Day Tour for one to four people.
Come and explore The Great Ocean Road and the Forestry and Fauna of the Otway National Park. The full-day tour takes us down the Great Ocean Road through Lorne and on to Apollo Bay. From Torquay to Apollo Bay is a two-hour drive along the cliffs and overlooking The Great Southern Ocean. We will have a short stop in Lorne and a longer stop in Apollo Bay for lunch.
After having a chance to eat and check out Apollo Bay the tour will then head inland for a half-hour drive for the Maits Rest Rainforest Walk. Wooden boardwalk with self-guided tours along a (roughly 30-minute) loop through rainforest habitat of giant Fern trees.
The trip wouldn’t be complete without seeing some of our most treasured animals. Koalas, Wombats, Wallabies, and so many other native birds and animals. Fauna Australia is further along the road. An hour here will fly by.
Mid-afternoon will see us start to head back to Geelong and dropping you off at around 5:00pm having had an amazing day with more memories and ‘selfies’ than you were thought possible.
The Narana Aboriginal Cultural Centre is a truly delightful, inspiring, and hands-on learning adventure. Apart from checking out some of Australia’s favourite animals, the centre itself is an opportunity to look at the amazing array of artwork and artefacts that are on display. Many are for sale. You can even have a bite to eat and try some genuine Aussie ‘tucker’.
From there, there is a 20-minute drive to The Jirrahlinga Wildlife Sanctuary. Jirrahlinga means ‘Seek-a-home for a Kangaroo’. Originally starting life as a place where injured animals found refuge, it has now grown to become one of the most important centres for getting close to and learning about all Australian wildlife. Make sure you have your cameras ready because you will want them handy. Native animals, reptiles, birds of every description. In fact, when you travel with Geelong Tours, they guarantee that you will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of Australia’s most loved animals.
You have around two hours here before heading back to Geelong. Arriving back at the Museum at 3:00pm.
Come with Geelong Tours and experience one of the world’s most incredible and scenic roads.
This tour starts in Geelong at 10:00am. You will then drive through Torquay, the surf capital of Victoria, where they can also pick up at around 10:30am. From there you will drive to the Memorial Arch. This is regarded as the official start of The Great Ocean Road and a chance to take a few selfies at the iconic Arch. It’s where, at the end of the second world war, men took picks and shovels to carve out one of the most difficult and inspiring projects you will ever see.
From there we will travel to Lorne where you will have an hour to look around and have a bite to eat. You will then drive up to Teddy’s lookout for one of the most spectacular views along the Great Ocean Road.
On the way back you have one more stop at The Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie, the amazing Chocolate Factory. Included in the tour is a tasting experience of 12 varieties of the unique handcrafted bars, gourmet balls, and choc coated speciality products.
Finally, to Geelong where you will finish up around 5:00pm.
Join some other wine lovers for a taste of the Bellarine. Although famous for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, many other types of wines are made right across the Bellarine. The wineries we have selected are all award-winning wineries. You will get to taste over 30 different wines and you will also have a glass of wine of your choice with lunch.
You start the tour at the National Wool Museum at 11:00am and have a 30-minute drive to the first winery. You can expect to visit The Flying Brick Cider House, Oakdene Vineyard, McGlashans Estate and Jack Rabbit Winery.
You’ll spend approximately one hour at each location and return to Geelong for a drop off at 4:00pm. A full five hours of indulgence.
Please Note, at The Flying Brick they give you the opportunity to try their wines or the cider if you prefer. If a private function is being held at one of the above wineries they may have to change a location. They may not be able to give notice of a change to the program.
The cost of lunch and all tasting fees are included in the cost of the tour.
