Our first Australian trips - to the Great Ocean Road region - are ready and raring to go.

We chose the Great Ocean Road because that is where we live. And Richard Everist, the co-founder of Around The Sun, with significant help from Digby Williamson, Around The Sun's Australian operator, wrote and published the definitive guidebook to the Great Ocean Road.

As we say in our introduction, Around The Sun only cover regions we know really well - because we have lived or travelled extensively in them - and because we like and trust outstanding local operators. South-Eastern Australia, and particularly the Great Ocean Road, fits those criteria!

Those interested in 'The Complete Guide to the Great Ocean Road' can see it on Google Books. Everyone who joins an Around The Sun Great Ocean Road journey will get a free signed copy of the book.

We're already working on more guided itineraries for Australia, but if you are interested in exploring South-Eastern Australia, contact us now.

Observant travellers will notice that we've listed Australia under Regions and Countries! There's no doubt Australia is a country, but is it the world's largest island or smallest continent? Is it part of Asia, Oceania or the Pacific? In the spirit of Australian culture, we decided to take an each way bet!
