Great Ocean Road Sunset Tour
This superb Great Ocean Road Sunset Tour from Melbourne provides an experience every visitor to the Victorian capital longs for — the chance to see the magnificent 12 Apostles sea stacks bathed in the soft light of sunset. This truly is an iconic day out!
Your day begins with a sleep-in and pick-up from selected CBD hotels between 9 and 11am (depending on the season). Before too long you’ll find yourself immersed in the breathtaking beauty of the Great Ocean Road. Every bend reveals a spectacular new vista. See golden beaches, dramatic windswept coastline and the lush swathes of rainforest that form the Great Otway National Park. There are regular stops and incredible photo opportunities throughout the drive. At Memorial Arch you’ll learn the emotive story of the construction of the road by returned WWI service personnel.
You’ll drive through the scenic towns of Lorne and Apollo Bay, and enjoy a walk through the rainforest at Maits Rest. There’s even the possibility of seeing koalas in the wild!
The tour continues to work its way west — with stops at Loch Ard Gorge and Gibson Steps, where you’ll have the opportunity to walk on the beach and look up at the soaring coastal cliffs. Finally, you’ll arrive at Port Campbell National Park — home to the world-famous limestone sea stacks known as the 12 Apostles. Formed over millions of years by the pounding ocean, the opportunity to view these monoliths at sunset is an exquisite one. You’ll need a fully charged camera, so come prepared!

Selected CBD hotel pick-ups completed, you’ll set off for Phillip Island in air conditioned comfort. You’ll enjoy the wonderfully scenic drive southeast towards the Mornington Peninsula, and your knowledgeable local guide will point out places of interest along the way. You’ll learn lots of interesting historical facts about the small rural towns you pass through.
Your first stop on this Phillip Island Penguins, Wildlife Park and Farm Tour from Melbourne is the famous Moonlit Wildlife Sanctuary — home to all manner of furry and feathered native Australian wildlife. You’ll have time to feed the kangaroos and meet the koalas in a pristine bushland setting.
Next, enjoy a scenic drive along Westernport Bay to magnificent Phillip Island, then across the bridge to Churchill Island to visit the fascinating Churchill Island Heritage Farm. This is a chance to step back in time to the 19th century and learn about traditional farming practices, or just take a stroll and meet the farm animals.
