What You Can Expect
Once out on the coast-hugging Great Ocean Road, you’ll be treated to breathtaking views and constantly changing scenery, from expansive sandy beaches to rugged cliffs dropping straight down into the sea. You’ll pass the scenic towns of Lorne, Apollo Bay and Port Campbell and visit the historic Split-Point Lighthouse. Keep a sharp eye out for wildlife along the way. You’re likely to spot koalas in their native habitat at the lovely Kennett River, where you’ll also enjoy lunch at a local café.
Admire the greenery of the Otway Ranges as you approach the notorious Loch Ard Gorge. Climb down a steep staircase to stand on the beach where the sole survivors of a shipwreck washed up in 1878.
This trip was fantastic! Watching the waves crash in from the southern ocean, and seeing the sunset over the 12 apostles was truly amazing. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. We saw koalas and kangaroos int the wild. If you are traveling to Australia, you should look into visiting Melbourne, and booking this trip!
This was an amazing experience. The sunset over the beach and the 12 Apostles was truly a bucket list item that everyone should endeavour to tick off! Seeing the Koalas in their natural habitat and the parrots eating from your hand was amazing.
Great tour, although it's a very long day, it was well worth it. Our driver/guide was Greg, very friendly, funny and provided lots of information along the way. Would def recommend this trip, just be prepared for a 3 hour journey back after sunset!
The day was long but fantastic. Our guide, Tim, was knowledgeable and personable and was a wizard at keeping things on schedule. The lunch stop was a beautiful surprise and we all had a fun time. Pity about the sunset, but we can't be lucky every time.
Great tour, well worth doing. Fantastic scenery and the sunset at the twelve apostles was amazing.
My tour guide, Shane, was great. He gave his all throughout the day making it as interactive and enjoyable as possible. From a personal perspective he added a huge amount to the day as I was travelling alone on the day trip so was very much my travel buddy for the day.
Beautiful tour, well organized, we got picked up on time at our hotel and our guide Mary was really nice and funny!
In spite of the horrible weather in the morning we got to see the stunning sunset at the 12 apostoles.
The stops on the way were beautiful too, saw wild koalas, parrots and the rain forest was amazing.
Lunch was included and it was good, easy sandwich with choice of meat or veggie burger.
Sneha United States of ...
Regardless of the ugly weather that day, this place was beautiful. The whole drive, the food, and offcourse 12 apostles everything was wonderful. Doing the sunset tour, the advantage is you will avoid the crowds in the mornings and you will have plenty of time for pictures
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
