What to expect
See some of the most impressive coastal landscapes on Earth while enjoying the personalized attention of a private guide. After morning pickup at your Melbourne hotel, relax on the drive out of town and through the port city of Geelong, which marks the start of the Great Ocean Road. Pass through the charming seaside towns of Anglesea and Torquay, home to world-class surfing beaches.  Stop to stretch your legs on the sand and enjoy morning tea in the village of Lorne, and then continue on to the lovely resort town of Apollo Bay, where you’ll savor lunch at a local restaurant (own expense). At any point, you can request to make additional stops to suit your interests. Sandy beaches give way to the emerald rain forest of Cape Otway National Park, which provides many opportunities to test your koala-spotting skills among groves of eucalyptus and beech trees. You’re also likely to encounter flocks of wild cockatoos and parrots throughout your journey. As you head further west, the scenery becomes even more majestic with jagged cliffs plunging into the ocean. The drive comes to a dramatic climax at the site of Twelve Apostles — an offshore cluster of giant limestone pillars formed by millions of years of erosion. You’ll also visit the eye-popping Loch Ard Gorge, site of a notorious shipwreck in 1878, and learn why this perilous stretch of coastline is known as Australia’s ‘Shipwreck Coast.’ After soaking up the spectacular geologic history, relax on the 3-hour return drive to Melbourne. On the way back, you’ll take an inland route to see some of Victoria’s scenic countryside, including the dairy town of Colac.

Oceania is a great company - and God Speed Frank!!
Feb 2020
We were on 4 Oceania tours this month. ALL were excellent and the guides and sights were amazing. I have to give a shout out to FRANK ROCCA, who is retiring after how many years?? This speaks volumes as to the company valuing employees. Frank had our group on 3 of 4 tours. He is a wonderful guide and human and deserves congratulations!! WE LOVE YOU FRANK!!

Now, on to the tours. We took a city tour, a Great Oceans Road tour, a trip to the penguins, AND a wine and country side tour. Depending on your interests, all were good. The Great Ocean Road and the animals are a must IMO. The smaller buses are great, and, during the fires, etc. the company kept in touch with us to assure us our tours were happening. Highly recommend.

Amazing tour with Fred!
Aug 2019
Last summer, me and my family went on the Great Ocean Road Tour with one of the best people we came across in Australia: Fred!! He took us to wonderful places: we saw many species of birds and even fed them, we saw up close kangaroos and koalas, and at the end of the trip he took us to the park to see the famous possums and we were able to pet them, which was pretty great! He also gave us excellent explanations about the views, animals, etc. And during the road trip he told us many interesting and funny stories that made the trip even more special! It shows that he is truly passionate about his job and by making people happy!

Oceania & Fred Garcarczyk are the BEST!!!!!
Feb 2020 • Family
Fred is a gem and really took extra care of my family. Fred was knowledgeable, friendly, considerate and entertaining throughout our 11-hour ocean Road tour. We saw koalas, kangaroos and parrots, plus allk the beautiful sights along the south coast, including the Apostles and surrounding, breathtaking rock formations and beaches. This was truly a memorable experience and we can’t thank Fred enough for the white glove treatment he gave us!!! A must do when in Melbourne!!!!!

Highlights of our trip to Melbourne
Aug 2019
To start with, Fred, our tour guide is simply the best! Our family of six ranging from 18+ to 80+ had such an amazing tour about two weeks ago and we're convinced it's just because we'd Fred, who's not only very knowledgeable about whatever information of the trip per se, but he's also kind enough to accommodate the needs of our aged lady - parking at selected spots to minimise her walking time, asking on and off if she'd need to take a rest, etc. In short, please ask for Fred if you're looking for an extraordinarily professional and exceedingly pleasant tour guide to show you the various hidden treasures of the Great Ocean Road!

Fred is a credit to Oceania Tours & Safaris!

Fantastic trip with Fred
Aug 2019 • Family
We did the Great Ocean Road with the best tourguide of Australia! 12hours drive just flew by! Fred was amazing, super professional and a great storyteller! This tour is super worth it, landscapes that just took our breath away and the best part was definetly going to the ecolodge to see the kangaroos, something that we can only do with this agency! Last but not least Fred took us to the garden to see and pet the possums which was super special! Fred thank you so much for such an amazing day, you definetly made our trip even better!

Shane was AMAZING :)
Apr 2019 • Family
What an absolute blast of a tour! My Mom and I had ventured from Sydney to start our month of travels in Australia, and what a wonderful way to set the tone for our trip. If you can get in a request, you MUST ask for Shane. An absolute gem to tour with. Brilliant conversation, nothing stuffy about the tour, a true "Aussie" to show you around. Nothing censored from this lovely man, and not one minute of the trip felt "scripted" whatsoever. On the same note, we felt like we soaked in so much knowledge and took in the most breathtaking sites we would have never expected from this southern tip of Australia. I would do the same trip again in a heartbeat and suggest everyone else who comes to Australia do the same. Nothing negative to say whatsoever. Thank you Shane!! From your crazy Canuk crew ;)

Best wishes for your future travels and we hope to welcome you back to Melbourne again soon.
