The Basics

A majority of the tours to the Twelve Apostles are full-day tours leaving from Melbourne in the early morning. There are many stops and photo opportunities along the way as you drive down the Great Ocean Road, such as Loch Ard Gorge, Apollo Bay, and Port Campbell. Discover the native wildlife, such as koalas and kangaroos, and learn about the local indigenous culture. For those who want a bird’s-eye view, take a helicopter tour over the Victorian coast.

Small Group - 12 Apostles, Otways & Great Ocean Road Day Tour from Melbourne
Great tour, with a knowledgeable tour guide. Going with a small group meant the guide was flexible and able to make changes to work around the unpredictable weather. The views were amazing, the walks were breathtaking, and the guide knew exactly where and when to go to avoid crowds.

Small-Group Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles Full-Day Tour from Melbourne
Beautiful scenery, nice pace, great guide and really enjoyable day. We had 7 stops in total and each one was worthy of our time. Our only regret was that we didn’t take the two or three day journey from Melbourne to Adelaide.

Traveled with my adult daughter. Paul treated us like family. We had no doubt of his love and knowledge of the area. We even saw a calf being born while visiting the dairy for cheese tasting. Made sure we had a clean van in the early stages of pandemic!

Wonderful trip. Our guide Kurt was very experienced. He totally outlined our day so we knew what was coming up. The stops were all worthwhile and enjoyable. My husband is a tall man and found the seats rather confining.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Twelve Apostles can be viewed from the viewpoint above or down on the beach, reached via the Gibson Steps.

  • The Great Ocean Road can be very chilly due to the strong winds from the Southern Ocean, so it’s best to dress in layers.

  • The Twelve Apostles Visitor Facility, located across the B100 highway, has an information center, restrooms and a drinking fountain (with wheelchair accessibility), a large parking area, and a small cafe.

How to Get There

For those who would like to road trip on their own, drive along the coastal B100 highway to reach the Twelve Apostles. Visitors can also rent a bike or book a cycling tour to explore the Great Ocean Road at their own pace. For the truly adventurous, the 65-mile (104-kilometer) Great Ocean Walk from Apollo Bay to the Twelve Apostles may be of interest.

When to Get There

The Twelve Apostles is one of Australia’s most popular attractions. Avoid the large crowds from tourist buses by getting to the rock formations in the early morning or late afternoon. Alternately, if you drive inland to get to the sight, and then take the Great Ocean Road back to Melbourne, it's generally a less crowded route.

The Shipwreck Coast

The Bass Strait was once a very busy shipping route, bringing supplies and immigrants to Melbourne from all over the world. But the waters were quite treacherous during bad weather. This resulted in upwards of 700 ships meeting a bitter end along this coastline, some of which can still be seen today between Port Fairy and Cape Otway.
