Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Full-Day Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles Sunset Tour from Melbourne

Great Ocean Road at 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 will pick 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’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. 
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. You’ll 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 approximately 3-hour return drive to Melbourne.

The trip overall was amazing! Great lunch, fabulous well paced stops with amazing views, we even had a koala in a tree with some fabulous native birds nearby one stop. The driver was fantastic. We had a couple college students on the bus who were extremely loud most of the trip which was not anyone's fault but might suggest some bus etiquette reminders to help with that on future trips or pass out ear plugs - they were over the top loud and talking inappropriately for mixed company.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough, it was totally amazing. The tour was made even better by our tour guide Kate who was absolutely brilliant. She got involved with us all on the tour, she was extremely informative, was a local girl, knew everything about where we were going. Kate actually made the day. From the first stop at the Farmers Market to the last stop at the 12 Apostles it was a brilliant day. There are numerous stops during the day, for sight seeing, coffee breaks, toilet breaks, so it's not all day on a bus. When i am back in Australia, i shall being doing this again and would be spending time overnight. A day isn't long enough, once you've had a taste of all the places along this stunning coast road you will want to come back.

It was wonderful experience. We have enjoyed this trip. Our tour guide was absolutely amazing. We stopped in different places such as Maid's Rest, the 12 Apostles inevitable and Loch Are Gorge and took a lot of wonderful pictures. He gave a lot of information about the history and ecology of the region. We spend the whole day starting from 9am till 11:30pm tour was so organised. In addition our lunch was absolutely delicious ,everything was organic and home-food. We highly recommend to choose this trip and enjoy it, as we did.
