Full-Day Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles Sunset Tour from Melbourne

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 78.92
2 travellers
Escape the crowds and experience the spectacular scenery and sunset over the Great Ocean Road on this small group tour. Depart mid-morning making your way towards the Surf Coast with frequent scenic stops, including the Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch. Along the way you will see pristine beaches, pass through idyllic seaside villages and stop to look for some of Australia’s iconic wildlife like wild koalas and colourful parrots. Discover the Shipwreck Coast, stroll along the historic beaches and see Loch Ard Gorge. Arrive at the 12 Apostles and descend the Gibson’s Steps where you will be dwarfed by the high cliff line and these enormous offshore stacks. One of the many highlights of your day will no doubt be watching the sun set over this spectacular coastline (summer only/subject to weather conditions).
  • Great Ocean Road and Twelve Apostles tour from Melbourne
  • Chance to see koalas in their native habitat
  • Included lunch in a Kennett River café
  • Convenient round-trip transit from select Melbourne hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel, or at a central meeting point, then board a climate-controlled coach for the Great Ocean Road, among Australia’s most beautiful drives. When you reach the coast-hugging road, keep your camera ready as you pass panoramic views of sandy beaches and rugged cliffs that plunge into the ocean. Watch for koala bears in Kennett River and enjoy views of the green Otway Ranges while approaching Loch Ard Gorge, then catch the day's grand finale at Twelve Apostles, whose rock formations turn rosy at sunset. When the light fades, climb back aboard the coach and relax during the return trip to Melbourne, where this tour concludes with drop-off at the original departure point.

Our tour guide Cloe is one of the best tour guides I’ve ever had. She’s so passionate and helpful. We even spotted some wildlife koalas! She filled out tour with laughter, fun facts, and great music. The tour wouldn’t have been the same without her!
