Australian Select Tours will run with small groups of four to six motorcycles for a more inclusive and personal experience. A lot of thought and enthusiasm went into planning our Select Tours and we hope that you love them as much as we do. Come ride with us!
Travelling from EagleRider Melbourne and out along Victoria’s south west and south-east coasts allows you to ride some of the most scenic areas of Victoria and Australia. Ride one of the most famous and best motorcycling roads in Australia, the Great Ocean Road. The Great Ocean Road has something for everyone. Pristine beaches, rain forests, beautiful towns such as Torquay and Lorne and of course the famous 12 Apostles. On the way back take the Ferry from Queenscliff to Sorrento where we visit the fabulous Mornington Peninsula with more spectacular coast line, beautiful sea side villages, wine country and more. Finally, we end up at Phillip Island and the unique wildlife attractions it provides.
Melbourne Select - Great Ocean Road & Phillip Island Tour Itinerary
Welcome to Melbourne you'll soon understand why it's been voted as the world's most livable city. There are fabulous parks, quirky lane ways, restaurants and cafes and innumerable bars and nightclubs. Melbourne is also one of the sporting capitals of the world so check what’s on before you arrive. Get settled into your hotel and we will all get together at the welcome dinner.
This morning you pick up your bike at EagleRider Melbourne and begin your journey heading out to the most spectacular road in Australia. Ride fantastic roads taking in an amazing scenery. From EagleRider in Mitcham we will head toward the Great Ocean Road travelling through the tourism based beachside towns of Anglesea, Torquay and Lorne before spending the night at Apollo Bay.
Today we continue to travel the Great Ocean Road. In addition to travelling on a road "built" for motorcycles we will stop to take in the views of the "12" Apostles, London Bridge and Perry's Look Out before stopping the night at Port Campbell. If you are up for it, take a breathtaking helicopter flight over the most beautiful scenery in Australia; the 12 Apostles, the Bay of Islands via London Bridge, or take in the beauty of the entire Shipwreck Coast all the way to Australia's oldest lighthouse at Cape Otway.
Today we will head inland but not before we visit Logans Beach at Warrnambool, hopefully to view female Southern Right whales who return to these waters to calve. The whales often swim within a hundred metres of the shore. After leaving Warrnambool will head north to the seaside village of Queenscliff where we will then take the Ferry across the bay to Sorrento.
After breakfast and perhaps a stroll along the beach in Sorrento we will head a little further south to visit one of Australia’s most expensive areas of real estate in the beachside town of Portsea. From Portsea we will head inland and travel along the edge of Western Port Bay however instead of travelling directly to Phillip Island we will take a slight detour and visit the southern coastal towns of Inverloch and Kilcunda. These are great motorcycling roads with spectacular views. Once we arrive and settle in at your accommodation in Phillip Island take the chance to sea some of the most unique wildlife in the world. Attend the Penguin parade or just visit the Australian wildlife reserve.
We will now head back to EagleRider in Mitcham however we will take the less beaten path travelling via the beautiful Gippsland Hills before again turning north west through Warburton, Healesville and the Yarra Valley to our destination of EagleRider Melbourne. Tonight, we'll celebrate the adventure over a delicious Farewell Dinner.
Today your exciting trip will conclude in Melbourne. Please be sure to let us know if you need an extra night or two to enjoy the sights. We can even arrange a discounted motorcycle rental! See you next year! EagleRider
