2-Day Camping and Surfing Great Ocean Road Trip from Melbourne
From US$ 182.92
Tick off the highlights of Australia’s world-famous Great Ocean Road and learn to surf on this action-packed 2-day road trip from Melbourne. Hit the beach for a 2-hour surf class, spot wild koalas and kangaroos, and soak up the scenery of Apollo Bay, the Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge. Best of all: spend a night in a Native American-style teepee by the beach, where you’ll tuck into a hearty Aussie BBQ around the campfire. This small-group tour is limited to 15 people and includes accommodation, meals and round-trip transport.
What to Expect

Day 1: (L,D)

Start the day with pickup from one of the central locations pointed out to you (Federation Square, St Kilda, North Melbourne, or your CBD hotel). The small group will take turns constructing a playlist of music for the drive as you play games and enjoy plenty of banter along the way.

Cruising through surf iconic towns such as Torquay, Bells Beach and Anglesea you will then have a 2 hour surf lesson with a surf school. It doesn't matter if you have never tried it before!

You'll have lunch by the beach consisting of a choice of sandwiches, baguettes and wraps.

Continue along the road stopping for any photo opportunities you like. Your guides will take you to the historic Great Ocean Road sign and a few beautiful beaches before arriving at Kennet River to see wild Koalas and birds which will fly into your hands!

Your guides know of a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy a beer where you'll setup to see the sun start to set.

One last stop at Apollo Bay for any last minute items before heading to your home for the night.... A 22ft Native American Teepee only 328-feet (100-metres) away from the beach. The Teepee site has bathrooms and toilets.

Enjoy a traditional Aussie BBQ, games, live music and general banter by the campfire in the middle of the Teepee as you sit back and relax or visit one of the local bars close by.

Day 2: (B)

The next morning enjoy breakfast and coffee before departing at 9am. Your tour guides will take you to another one of their secret spots, a field of hundreds of Kangaroos.

Finally arrive at the Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge and take in the serenity.

Dose off in the van as you head back to Melbourne (3 hours) returning in the CBD at approximately 5:30pm.

Absolutely loved it

We had an incredible time - we were a small group of five but everyone got stuck in and Andrew was a top host. The surfing was brilliant fun and the teepee camping is great - we sat with an open fire, drinks and a...More

only way to do the GOR

5 star, Andrew is a top bloke, trip feels like a roadtrip rather than tourist bus; highlights of the GOR done and not rushed in a day. Teepee is awesome.

Awesome Roadtrip!

I can highly recommend the Teepee Tours! Have a great roadtrip with friends, instead of a tourist bus with a tight time limit. Just enjoy the time on the road, during your surf at a nice beach, in the cozy teepee,... What a awesome experience...More
