What You Can Expect

Best Full-Day Great Ocean Road Sunset Tour from Melbourne

Great Ocean Road

Start your day by traveling through Victoria’s second largest city, Geelong, before heading south to the coastal town of Torquay, the gateway to the Great Ocean Road.

Enjoy the breathtaking coastal views as you drive through the scenic towns of Lorne, Apollo Bay and Port Campbell, and visit the iconic Split-Point Lighthouse, Australia’s oldest surviving lighthouse. This lighthouse has been in use since 1848 and was a signal for thousands of immigrants at sea that land was near after many months at sea. There will be plenty of opportunities to see the native wildlife such as koalas, grey kangaroos and a variety of birds. Stop at Kennett River for Koala Spotting and enjoy an included cafe lunch.

Next walk through the Otway Ranges and see Loch Ard Gorge and Gibsons Steps on the western end of the Great Ocean Road before arriving at the world famous limestone rock stacks, the Twelve Apostles. Naturally formed by erosion, these limestone formations were originally caves and arches that collapsed due to the harsh weather conditions into the clear blue waters of Port Campbell National Park.

Before returning to Melbourne, take in the gorgeous sunset over the spectacular coastline, which will no doubt be one of the many highlights of your day!

Enjoy the trip. Though is it a long day but worth to go. The Twelve Apostles has spectular view especially under sunset. The rain forest pretty interesting. Shane the tour guide did very good job. The arrangement was all on schedule. I had recommended my friends and relatives this is must go scenic and suggest them to book via viator.com

Had a great day, well worth the long day we had. Beautiful scenery, not just at The Apostles, but also a little further along to Loche Ard Gorge, stunning! Returning to Melbourne through lush beautiful farm land. If I had a negative it would be lunch, but that wasn't so important to me

We toured with Bunyip Tours for the Great Ocean Road Sunset tour. It is a relaxing and incredible to go on. We had a tour guide named Rail (apologise if wrongly spelt) and he made the trip worth the while. As stated you end up at the 12 apostles just before sunset and that experience is a 'one in a life time' sunset! trust me, dont miss it! google it if you don't believe me.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2013

A great trip. Lots of driving, but our tour guide was very good and told us a lot. I can't believe I can't remember her name all of a sudden. Scenery is, of course, breathtaking. You need to do the trip to see this at least once.
