Nature at its best! The majestic Great Ocean Road – miles of eroded coastline that gets hit so hard by waves and wind that it breaks off into the ocean, leaving mysterious shapes. Walk a few hundred metres inland and we’ll see the dense rainforest lining the sheer cliffs, a dangerous environment that early european settlers struggled to steer their ships through.
REAL takes you on either a huge day trip, or a relaxing weekend trip all the way down the Great Ocean Road. We’ll be checking out the remarkable coastline with many beach, waterfall and other stops along the way! Then, it’s off to Apollo Bay (spotting koalas in their natural eucalyptus habitat on the way), before finally making the trek down to the 12 Apostles.
Our local Aussie staff will be there all the way to make sure you have a best experience possible, organizing all-Australian games and activities. Get on board !
This action-packed weekend (Sat/Sun) will provide you with one of the most memorable experiences you will have while in Australia!

Our friendly Aussie staff will guide you along the beautiful Cape Woolamai, The Nobbies, San Remo and the wonderful Maru Wildlife Park, while soaking up the late summer sun and ensuring you get the REAL experience of Aussie life on the island!
