Great Ocean Road Tour

The 1 day Great Ocean road tour was fantastic! The tour guide Kurt was really great and very friendly.

“Its a great memory forever….thanks very much Autopia! I def recommend it to anyone that want to see a bit more around Melbourne.” Ampay – Netherlands “We took a one-day-Great Ocean Road tour and our tour guide, Campbell, was super! He was knowledgeable, hilarious, and very entertaining. it was really a fun tour. Although we were picked up very early in the morning, it was sooo worth it. Highly recommended.” Franzi – Germany “I went on the one day Great Ocean Road tour and Simon the guide made sure the day fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and kept us all entertained!” Kris – England “The 1 day Great Ocean road tour was fantastic! The tour guide, Teagan, was really great and very friendly.

At Autopia Tours we actively promote the protection of flora and fauna on our Great Ocean Road Tour.  It is our duty to ensure there is minimal disturbance to this National Heritage Listed region and the species that call it home.  Cultural sensitivity and respect for the traditional owners should also be shown at all times.  

Part of our responsibility is educating guests on minimal impact practices and the importance of ensuring the safety of wildlife and the environmental sustainability of the destinations we visit.

1. Autopia Tours would like to begin by paying our respects to the traditional owners of this country, with specific acknowledgement to the Wadawurrung, Gulidjan, Gadubanud, Wathaurong, Djargurdwurung and Giraiwurung people.  Please be conscious and respectful of the sensitivities of indigenous culture and the spiritual connection they have with the land at all times.  

2. All our guides carry a current Level 2 First Aid certificate. Please report any accident or illness to your tour guide.  We recommend anyone with an existing medical condition to carry their medication with them on tour and to notify their tour guide at the beginning of the tour.

3. All buses are fitted with waste bins. No organic waste should be disposed of onto the ground. Although organic, items such as banana peels, apple cores, bread and other food scraps, are not natural/native to the region and can introduce pest species, diseases or harm to wildlife if found and eaten.

4. The natural behaviours of wildlife are to be respected and not interfered with. When viewing wildlife, people should take care to avoid rapid or sudden movements, which could frighten the animal, and should keep noise to a minimum and refrain from touching, petting or feeding all wildlife including birds.  Contact with people can introduce diseases to wildlife and can cause them to become aggressive.

5. People should remain on designated walking tracks, behind safety barriers/fences and follow all directions given by the guide/tour leader. Venturing off these can alter fragile ecosystems and can harm wildlife shelters and native vegetation.  There are other dangers to be aware of too, such as cliff edges, unstable rock formations, overhanging tree branches and slippery ground cover.  Remaining on tracks ensures safe visitation for guests and the environment.

6. Wildlife should not be handled or fed, unless by certified wildlife handlers.  Feeding wildlife can alter their natural foraging behaviour and can lead to disease or illness through contact with people and the introduction of foods that are harmful to their digestive system.  Feeding wildlife can also cause them to become aggressive towards people.

7. No flora or fauna should be removed from their natural setting. This includes dead wood, fallen leaves, flowers and so forth, as they form part of the ecosystem of the region and their removal could cause disturbance.

8. Wildlife that appears to be in distress, injured or in danger should be reported immediately to the appropriate authority, such as your Guide/Tour Leader, a National Park Ranger, Visitor Centre Staff or Wildlife Victoria Rescue Ph:1300 094 535.

9. If you are a smoker! We ask you to refrain from smoking whilst in the company of other passengers and limit it to designated smoking areas.  Smoking is not permitted on any of our vehicles, or in any type of accommodation including permanent campsites. We make frequent ‘comfort stops’ to allow free time for guests but cannot guaranteed smoke breaks. Please ensure you dispose of your cigarette butt responsibly and appropriately.

10. We recommend all passengers bring a water bottle with you on our Great Ocean Road Tour. Purchasing bottled water contributes large amounts of plastic into landfill.  Therefore, we ask guests to bring their own bottle, as there is access to water refill stations available on our vehicles.  Please ensure you stay hydrated throughout the tour to reduce the risk of sun exposure and dehydration.
