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!

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.

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
