‘This tour takes a small group of around 20 people. We stopped to see some Aussie animals, including cockatoos, koalas, and kangaroos, and we did a short hike through the rainforest. The view of the 12 Apostles is unbelievable and the sunset is breathtaking. It was a happy and unforgettable day. I strongly recommend it!’

    This tour bus was fully booked and we were among the last picked up so we were stuck sitting in the very back seats which were terrible. The tour itself was enjoyable - we had good weather so we were able to enjoy all of the sights. Our host Richard was personable and engaging with some good stories and insights to share. Bear in mind that this is a very long day so if you book a similar tour try to get a comfortable ride.

    We have been in Melbourne for just 3 days . So We have chosen the 1 day Great Ocean Road and it was absolutely amazing. Had fun at Cape Patton and enjoyed the beautiful great ocean rod cost and the ‘12 Apostles’. Had a great experience with our couch tour operator. Our guide John was absolutely funny, responsable and prepared for it. Thanks for everything.

    Did the Grand Ocean Road with this company and I am a very happy traveler. Our driver Dan was great, knowledgeable and funny with a great music selection at the right volume. You get your money worth with these guys. Thanks Daniel

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. The tour heads west from the city and before too long you’ll be immersed in the stunning natural beauty of the Great Ocean Road. There are regular stops and incredible photo opportunities throughout the drive, including at the Memorial Arch — where you’ll learn the emotive story of the construction of the road by returned WWI service personnel.

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.

You’ll drive through the scenic towns of Lorne and Apollo Bay (where lunch can be purchased), and enjoy a walk through the rainforest at Maits Rest. There’s even the possibility of seeing koalas in the wild!

There are 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!

This Great Ocean Road Sunset Tour from Melbourne is the quintessential Victorian experience. Enjoy!
