Return Details

Returns to original departure point
After meeting your group at 9:00am, cruise out of the big city to the Great Ocean Road, one of Australia's most famously scenic drives.

When you arrive at the coast, your guide provides all the necessary gear for your 2-hour surf lesson. Learn the basics of surfing on the beach before trying out your new skills in the water. Your guide accompanies you into the ocean at a spot that is ideal for beginners, and ensures that you have a fun and safe surfing experience.

After your surfing lesson, have about one hour free to explore Anglesea and purchase lunch in town and maybe shop at Surf City to hit the surf shops, with options such as Rip Curl, Quicksilver and factory outlets.

Continue your journey along Great Ocean Road towards Lorne. Along the way, you will have great photo ops of wild kangaroos and the Great Ocean Road sign on your way to the coastal town of Lorne. Have time to meander around Lorne, and take a swim at a spot with waterfalls and a natural waterslide.

We make our way towards Melbourne down the Great Ocean Road, stopping off for a drink on the cliffs above Bells Beach to watch the sunset and the local surfers on their home break. Soak in the spectacular scenery of Victoria's coastline as you make your way to your original departure point where you tour ends.

Absolutely fantastic tour! If you're looking for a more laid back and personal adventure for the day, this tour is it! We felt like we were spending the day with a good local friend we hadn't seen in years. Definitely recommend to anyone!
환상적인 경험!

다른 여행사와는 달리 가이드가 시내로 픽업을 와줘서 편하게 먼 곳까지 이동할 수 있었습니다. 앵글시에서 서핑했습니다. 비치에서 간단하게 교육받고 바로 바다로 가서 서핑 즐겼습니다. 가이드가 재미있게 도와주고 놀아줘서 덕분에 완전 신나게 서핑할 수 있었어요~ 론 마을에서 폭포도 보고 다시 앵글시로 와서 캥거루도 많이 볼 수 있었답니다! 진짜 친절하고 착한 가이드 덕분에 완벽하고 환상적인 경험 할 수 있었습니다!! 강력추천!!
