What to Expect
Described as a perfect day trip along the coast, on this tour, check out the Twelve Apostles' limestone stacks, visit Loch Ard Gorge and learn about its tragic history, check out Apollo Bay, the rainforest and see some koalas, kangaroos and birds along the way. The only goal is to have an amazing day full of spectacular sights (and some laughs, too)!
This tour begins with a convenient pick-up run from selected Melbourne accommodation, before you head out of the city to the furthers part of the Great Ocean Road. Your first scenic stop will be at the Twelve Apostles, where you'll get to experience the boardwalk and viewing platforms and get your first glimpse of the natural limestone rock stacks and cliffs. Then, head onto the beach in front of the first Apostel at Gibson Steps, where you can spend some time taking in their size and beauty.
Then, it’s a short drive from the Twelve Apostles to the beautiful Loch Ard Gorge, where you will walk on the famous 'shipwreck beach.' While here, check out more magnificent limestone formations, like the Razorback, Three Sisters and the Salt and Pepper Shaker.
Afterwards, it's off to the Great Otway National Park, which stretches or over 1000sq km. Here, find adorable koalas in their natural habitat and grab some photos, before arriving in Apollo Bay for some free time and lunch. While in Apollo Bay, feel free to grab some food at any of the different cafés, restaurant and bakeries, or even head to the Gin distillery or pub for a well-earned drink.
Spend the afternoon driving and stopping along the scenic drive between Apollo Bay and Anglesea at places like Cape Pattern Lookout, Kennet River, Lorne and The Memorial Arch. You may even be able to spot some kangaroos grazing in the fields!
Please note: This tour is suitable for people between the ages of 18 and 35.
