Tour ID: 10011481
Experience Victoria’s magical Great Ocean Road – a twisting, turning ribbon of road that skirts a spectacular coastline of golden beaches and idyllic towns. Drive through Geelong, Lorne and Apollo Bay, marvelling at the incredible vistas along the way. Experience the lush rainforest of the Otway Ranges and see an incredible array of wildlife including koalas and native birds. At sunset, admire the iconic Twelve Apostles – limestone stacks that rise high from the pounding ocean.
The Great Ocean Road has to be seen to be believed. More accurately, it has to be driven!
The Great Ocean Road Sunset Tour will take you along this twisting, turning stretch of tarmac next to some of Australia’s most spectacular natural scenery. You will feel like you’re flying over the ocean as we cruise right beside the coast and experience its magic first hand.
Starting in Melbourne, you’ll cruise through Victoria’s second largest city, Geelong, and join up with the Great Ocean Road for a relaxing drive along the stunning coastline. The tour will pass through Port Campbell, Lorne and Apollo Bay, three iconic Australian coastal towns popular with holidaymakers.
Along the way there'll be a visit to a local beach on the Surf Coast where you can feel golden sand between your toes, marvel at the high cliffs and feel the power of the ocean that has sculpted the awesome landscape over millennia. If you bring your bathers (and the conditions are favourable) you can even go for a swim.
Back on the bus, you’ll continue our cruise along the Great Ocean Road, stopping to see koalas in the wild, as well as kangaroos and native birds, including parrots, amid the lush rainforest of the Otway Ranges. You will be amazed at how close you can get to these unique creatures!
After a refreshing cut lunch, you’ll travel west to the amazing Gibson Steps and Loch Ard Gorge where stunning natural rock formations, coastal plants and pristine beaches can be found. Your expert guide will tell you the history of this amazing area, known as the Shipwreck Coast for a reason!
The final stop is the true highlight of the tour – the Twelve Apostles. These iconic limestone stacks tower from the pounding surf and are one of Australia’s most popular tourist attractions. They can be seen from specially designed and built walkways that offer perfect views.
This is a small group tour with an emphasis on eco-friendly practices, so you can experience the very best of the Great Ocean Road in comfort and style, knowing your visit has a minimal impact on this unique environment.
