This tour is for 18-to-thirtysomething backpackers, international students and young travellers looking for an adventure seeing the sights but also meeting other like-minded travellers exploring the world just like them.

On this tour, we drive the road in the opposite direction, starting from the south-west coast and working back, allowing us to avoid the crowds from other tour buses, getting the boring part of the drive out of the way first and saving the best of the Great Ocean Road for last.

A two-day tour means we can take our time along the way, so that you will never feel rushed. The only timeline we have is to ensure we arrive on time at the Twelve Apostles for sunset.

Awesome ocean road experience!

Honestly the best thing I’ve done on my trip in Australia ! Met some really lovely people and shared some amazing experiences ! The sunset at the 12 apostles was stunning and probably one of the best sunsets you’ll ever see. All the beaches were cool and had plenty of time in each stop. The sow and piglets hostel in port Cambell is great and a luxury ! Especially when topped off with a homemade roast by Cam! Cam is a legend and wants to make your experience as authentic and personal as possible. Happy to help and give advice on your travels as well. Really would recommend this trip to everyone !!
Perfect weekend trip

Really nice, communicative and ambitious tour guide! He cooked the dinner by himself with the help of all and the food was amazing. Also, I think you could not have seen more places in this short amount of time, wonderful. Thank you so much for the trip! :)
Perfect Great Ocean Road Tour

The best tour I've ever had!! At the start, Cam (our tour guide) described himself as our personal driver, photographer, chef, and friend. I would give him 5 stars in all these areas.

The trip goes along the Aussie coast, with stops at waterfalls within rainforests, fields of kangaroos, and beautiful seaside towns. Plus, the hostel is really nice and dinner was very tasty (and accomodating for dietary requirements).

Initially I booked the 1 day, but I'm happy I chose the 2 day tour. It's definitely worth it.

Thank you Cam

Was hesitating whether to rent a car or book a tour and glad I booked a tour! The guide was really nice and informative, showed us things we would never have seen otherwise.

Geared towards the younger crowd, you get to stay in a real cool hostel but bear in mind that it's a mixed dorm with 8 other people.

Really glad I did this tour, didn't feel rushed :)
