Great Ocean Road, Lorne

Naturally, every Melbourne’s visitor is planning to make this trip. Don’t you?

Three Koalas GREAT OCEAN ROAD AND WINERIES TOUR from Melbourne offers you this chance. And not just to take part in this amazing road trip but also to taste some very special wines at some very unique wineries of Victoria’s Surf Coast.

We are telling you right now – not that many people have such a chance. To our best knowledge no other wine touring or Great Ocean Road touring company offers wine tasting tours from Melbourne in that region.

But with Three Koalas Winery Tours of Great Ocean Road this is possible!

Yet another absolutely MUST DO tour for Melbourne’s overseas visitors.

Yes, it will be a very long day. After all we will cover around 600 km on a one day round trip from Melbourne. But what a great day it’s going to be! Judge for yourself:

 Taste “not easy to find” wines at “not easy to get to” wineries of Victoria’s fabulous Surf Coast. The opportunity to be “not as everyone”.

 Make a road trip of your life along one of the most famous and picturesque stretches of bitumen in the world – The Great Ocean Road. Awe at some of the best ocean views in Australia, discover the wildlife where you wouldn’t expect and enjoy splendid scenery and dramatic landscapes.

Put it this way, Three Koalas Wine Tours offer you something truly unique on this Great Ocean Road trip. Participate in “must do” Aussie touring experiences of iconic Great Ocean Road and taste beautiful wines at some not so mainstream Surf Coast wineries

All on just one unforgettable day tour.
