Rock Formations

The 12 Apostles are just one of a number of incredible rock formations situated along The Great Ocean Road. These soaring pillars, which have been chiselled out of limestone over 10 to 20 million years, rise up majestically from the Southern Ocean, and are a photographers dream.

 

Rainforests

There are many different Rainforests to view. We take guests to Maits Rest as well as Melba Gully, where the boardwalks has been built over the tree-fern gullies and moss-covered roots of ancient rainforest trees, protecting the delicate ecosystem while providing you with unique views of the forest.
