Based in Melbourne, Around and About is a travel and planning company specialising in tours of The Great Ocean Road. Whether you are a solo traveller, a family with a young child, or a larger group of friends, we can accommodate you on our comfortable, modern, 12-seater tour vehicle.
Would you like to see the sunset over the 12 Apostles? Photograph them from the air onboard a helicopter? Fancy exploring the rainforest from a treetop suspended pathway, or zip lining through the trees? Take a look at the Great Ocean Road Bus Tours we have available. We have carefully planned each trip so that you can experience the best that the world’s most scenic coastal drives have to offer.
The Great Ocean Road in a Day
If you want to see The Great Ocean Road in a day, our one-day tour departs from Melbourne at 6.15 am and returns around 12 hours later. Around and About has planned this tour so you can see as many of the attractions as possible during your day trip, including the 12 Apostles, Otway Forest, the temperate rainforest walk at Maits Rest, Lorne, and Bells Beach.
Around and About offers a section of day trips along The Great Ocean Road for those in search of action. We can drive you to sandy Anglesea for a two-hour surf lesson and an afternoon of surfing, or you can opt for a day trip to Lorne Livewire Park for a fun-packed day in Victoria’s rainforest. Our 12 Apostles and Zip Line Tour travels to Otway Fly Treetop Adventure, and during our day trip to Lorne Livewire Park, you will fly and zip through the trees, cruise on the Shockwave Zip Coaster, and explore Victoria’s rainforests on a treetop-suspended pathway.
