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!

If you have time for only one thing to do in Australia, select this tour! Heaven on Earth!.Absolutely spectacular! We got some great photos of the sunset. The tour is timed in such a way that we reach the twelve apostles at sunset. The weather is unpredictable but we were lucky and it was sunny that day. The hotel pickup was just a block from our hotel. After that we were transferred to another bus. Everything started on time. Found the tour stops a bit rushed, but since there was so much to cover its understandable. Our guide 'Ollie' was friendly and cooperative throughout. Lunch was a choice of burgers and sandwiches. They were pre-ordered about half an hour earlier so as to save time. Well organised trip and a bit tiring but well worth it. There was a stop for tea and biscuits early on which was a nice touch.Tip: Keep some soap with you, some of the public toilets where we stopped did not have soap. Also its very windy and cold so don't forget your woollies. They give you time to get a take away dinner afterwards which you can eat on the bus.

Our tour guide Rob is a EXCELLENT tour guide, he kept us entertained and we could see his passion for his job and making sure that we really enjoy ourselves. Great Ocean Road is a definite must go place and the scenery is really beautiful. Glad that I took the Sunset view as the weather was great even though there were far too much clouds but the breeze and view was stunning. Lunch was pizza which were too salty, but it was a big portion though. Love the ice cream that Rob recommended, with different flavours.
