Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
Pickup is only available from the list of hotels provided upon checkout.

Your pickup will be between 9am-10am (April-October) & 10am-11am (November-March) depending on which hotel you selected.

Your exact meeting time will be provided after a booking is placed.

This tour returns to Melbourne at approximately 9pm-12am depending on the season.

Depart Melbourne in the morning via Westgate Bridge, the longest bridge in Australia, with sweeping views of the city and Port Phillip Bay.

Pass Geelong, Victoria’s second-largest city, as you make your way towards the Surf Coast known for lovely beachside towns and powerful surf. During a short stop in Anglesea, stretch your legs by strolling along the Anglesea River before continuing your scenic journey.

Soak in the breathtaking coastal scenery of the Great Ocean Road as you drive and during frequent scenic stops, including a photo op at Eastern View where the Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch stretches over the road.

Have time to purchase lunch in Kennet River or Lorne. Afterward, take a walk through a wilderness refuge with eucalyptus trees that shelter wild koalas. Look for the koalas in the trees napping or munching on leaves—the large population of koalas virtually guarantees multiple sightings.

Continue by coach through the Otway Ranges to the Shipwreck Coast and Port Campbell National Park. There you see iconic rock formations starting with Loch Ard Gorge. Hear the story of the shipwreck at Loch Ard in 1878 and view other rock formations with amusing names such as Dumpling Pots, Razorback, and Island Archway. Then head to the Twelve Apostles before sunset to watch the sky change colors over the majestic rock formation.

On the return to Melbourne, expect a stop in the town of Colac for dinner (own expense).

Perfect weather at the perfect spot for the perfect sunset. A tour allows you being in the nature. Long trip but totally worth it!
Spectacular view

Highly recommend sunset tour. I have been to 12 apostle daytime as well but sunset is more spectacular and speechless! The guide, Joel was super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I had good experience on this tour.
Impressive views the entire way
, Mar 2020
I absolutely loved this sunset tour. Joel was our guide and he did a nice job telling us some of the history associated with the land marks. The 12 Apostles was a perfect finale to our trip. Sit on the left side of the bus for best views!

We had a great time during the entire tour, especially at the Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles. The guide Corey was also very kind with very detailed explanations and good sense of humor. It was absolutely a wonderful experience full of lovely memories.
Beautiful sunset!

Stunning views, great guide...I am sorry I can't remember her name but it is the tall girl from Netherlands with an Aussie accent.
The best day trip ever
, Mar 2020
This trip was amazing! The views were fantastic. Although the weather got worse by the end of the day and we couldn't enjoy the sunset in its brightest, it was totally worth it. Our guide Chris was incredibly helpful and provided us with all relevant facts, details and funny stories without being annoying or too much. Even the tunes that accompanied us in the car had carefully been chosen to correspond to the atmosphere of the exact place. It was definitely one of the best experiences in my life.

Great scenery, Glenn was a well informed and enthusiastic guide. Even with showers at sunset it was a breathtaking experience.
Long day but worth it
, Feb 2020
We were the last to be picked up so had to squeeze into the back seats as the bus was full. Quite comfortable seats but sometimes struggled to hear some of the commentary. Weather not great but views still outstanding and enjoyed our pizza and fizzy wine picnic while waiting for the sunset. It was quite cold and breezy so would recommend layers and wind proof jacket,
good experience
