The coast line is absolutely phenomenal. I am glad I took a bus instead of driving because the road is so winding that I would have had to concentrate on the road instead of the scenery. The bus driver was very knowledgeable & had lots of interesting tid-bits to share. There were lots of ESL people on board so I'm not sure how much they benefited from the commentary but I was very impressed. There wasn't really very much to do at Apollo Bay for 12 hours, although it is very pretty and I took lots of photos. I had to buy a winter hat there it was so cold. I probably would recommend doing the adventure as a Day Trip. I am very pleased I have now seen this unique stretch of Australia.
