Why we love the Great Ocean Road

At Bunyip Tours, we have won several awards in our time – including the Victorian Tourism Award Gold for best Major Transport and Tour Operator 2016 and Silver for best Major Transport and Tour Operator 2017. Now we have achieved yet another accolade. We are pleased to announce that our innovative, eco-friendly company has been featured in an article by Bupa Overseas Student Health Cove. The post has rounded up the mostInsta-worthy destinations in Australia and has namechecked the best providers to offer trips to these regions and places – Bunyip Tours included.

Our personalised vacations have impressed the insurance company, particularly our trip from Melbourne along the Great Ocean Road, because of the small group sizes, interactive experiences and excellent guides.

The company chose The Great Ocean Road as one of the best places to take photos in Australia, and we have to say that we fully agree. We love the diversity of the magnificent landscape, from the 12 Apostles – the rocks that emerge from the sea and tower across the coastline – to the tranquil beauty of Lake Elizabeth. Loch ard Gorge, Blanket Bay and Parker Inlet are also worthy stops on our journey, with the latter being especially photogenic due to the pieces of shipwreck that still dot the beach

As purveyors of tours across the Great Ocean Road, we also have plenty of experience photographing it. With that in mind, we have lots of top tips for taking the best snapshots of the area, which we shared with the insurance company. The 12 Apostles are a highlight, of course, and they are best viewed early in the morning or at sunset. Loch ard Gorge, meanwhile, is picture perfect at midday when the sun shines down on it, while taking images of the rainforest in destinations such as Lake Elizabeth and Mait’s Rest are fun to do at night because of the glow worms.
