Great Ocean Road & 12 Apostles Small Group Day Tour

by Wildlife Tours Australia Duration 13h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is AU$119

Miles of rugged beaches, wave-carved rock formations, and dense rainforest await on this full-day adventure along Australia's most famous scenic highway. Cruise along the Great Ocean Road to see icons like the 12 Apostles, stroll beneath towering trees to spot koalas and lorikeets, and linger over lunch in seaside Apollo Bay.

Head out of Melbourne and hit the road—the Great Ocean Road, that is. This 151-mile (243-km) highway winds its way along the southeastern coast of Victoria and is the world's largest war memorial. Your first stop en route is at Surf Beach, where you can enjoy morning tea while watching surfers catch waves before continuing on to Memorial Arch.

Venture into the woods to look for koalas perched in the treetops, colourful parrots and lorikeets, and the gum tree-loving kookaburra. In Apollo Bay, relax over lunch as you soak in the atmosphere of this waterfront locale, and then work off your meal with a guided bushwalk through the towering trees that line the Maits Rest board walk in the Otway Ranges, a cool and ancient temperate rainforest.

Make your way to the striking 12 Apostles, limestone stacks rising up from the waves, and Loch Ard Gorge, where you can take a walk while listening to the tale of Australia's most notorious shipwreck. Your final stop is at the arch nicknamed London Bridge or the cliffs known as the Gibson Steps, where you can feel the breeze off the sea before heading back to Melbourne.

The tour was great; Hiro, the guide was an awesome guy. The seats in the bus were a bit cramped for my long legs, and for such a long journey. But still, the experience was worth the effort.

Pick up did not occur as we expected for the morning tour, so the company kindly arranged for us to join the sunset tour group. There was another miscommunication on the 2nd pick up, but it all worked out in the end and we enjoyed the sunset tour very much. Beautiful vistas along the ocean road with a lovely sunset at the 12 Apostles.
