Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Leaving later than other Great Ocean Road tours means this tour culminates in a spectacular coastal sunset.
The Great Ocean Road is one of the most scenic coastlines in the world. See it all in a new light on this rewarding full-day tour. Your informative guide picks you up in an air-conditioned coach at your Melbourne hotel. From there, make your way out of the city, passing through the bustling port town of Geelong and the famous surf spot of Torquay.

Once out on the coast-hugging Great Ocean Road, you are treated to breathtaking views and constantly changing scenery, from expansive sandy beaches to rugged cliffs dropping straight down into the sea. Pass the scenic towns of Lorne, Apollo Bay, and Port Campbell. 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.

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. 

The grand finale of your tour awaits at the Twelve Apostles—a natural geologic wonder created by the erosion of cliffs over millennia, leaving a cluster of limestone pillars jutting majestically out of the ocean. Arrive in time to witness this jaw-dropping sight bathed in the fiery hues of the setting sun. Once the light has faded, hop back in your comfortable coach and relax on the return drive to Melbourne.

Rush throughout the day

Since it was the Boxing Day, I understand that the schedule got a bit late and rush. The supplemental dinner was not good enough, especially when we had to pay and had dinner in the bus/streetside. The bus had very small seats, it’s suffered to sit in for 3hrs.

Great trip, excellent guide. The weather wasn't very good (low temp and high wind) but in the end that made the scenery more spectacular. Jake was knowledgeable, funny and took good care of us. Well done.

Great customer experience, chiefly down to a great bunch of folk, but importantly, our tour guide BEAR !!! He was excellent and kept the whole show on the road for 13 hours !!! Plenty comfort breaks and refreshment stops. Highly recommended, Graham (Scotland)

We wanted to see the Great Ocean Road and the 12 Apostles however wondered about our ability to survive the 12 hr day. The view is worth the trip. June was our guide and driver—he is just delightful! Friendly, knowledgeable of the sights and their history, and full of joy. June perfectly timed our sunset arrival at the 12 Apostles and as a bonus we were able to see many other beautiful places along the way. Lunch provided was good and refreshing. June provided ‘after sunset’ tea, coffee and cookies which hit the spot.Highly recommend this tour. Very long day however we’ll worth it. You can sleep the next day!

13 hour long day flew by getting off and on bus at great stops! Stroked kangaroos, saw wild koalas and brilliant sunset over 12 apostles. Ian was great chatting along with his co pilot 👨‍✈️ literally, my partner struggled with leg room on minibus luckily spare seat next to him.
