This is a private LGBT+ friendly tour from one of Australia's leading LGBT+ tour providers. We offer a safe and comfortable environment for all our guests. You will have your own personal guide and exclusive access to the vehicle. We always have a set tour route, but we encourage all our guests to offer any personal preferences or interests so we can customise the tour to suit you. Great Ocean Road and Phillip Island are 2 of the most popular areas to visit in Victoria, if not Australia. Whilst Phillip Island is perfectly suited to see in the one day, The Great Ocean Road is really designed to see over 2 days. So we use the 2nd and 3rd day of the tour to visit the road with an overnight stay in Apollo Bay - nicknamed 'Paradise By The Sea'.

Melbourne City River Trails

Melbourne City River Trails

Although Melbourne is situated on the shores of one of the largest bays on the Australian coast, the city's main water feature is the Yarra River. That's because the city grew from the banks of the Yarra and even today the focus for the city is still very much on a one-kilometre section of the river.. The Yarra River precinct is a wonderful place for tailor made, short interesting walks covering the arts, maritime history and fabulous gardens. This precinct is the hub of Melbourne's artistic and cultural scene, with generous examples of public art and exciting architecture. This precinct includes the significant green spaces of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Birrarung Marr as well as smaller parks, gardens, reserves and Southbank.
