Great Ocean Road Attractions

Great Ocean Walk and Grampians Tour

Great Ocean Road Ultimate Attractions Guide

Over the last 4 years of running Good Times Tours I’ve been lucky enough to experience most of the attractions & activities along the Great Ocean Road and Great Ocean Walk hiking trail that runs from Apollo Bay to the 12 Apostles.
