from AUD $126.50
Escape the crowds and experience the spectacular scenery and sunset over the Great Ocean Road on this small group tour.

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.

We absolutely enjoyed our Full Day Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles Sunset tour. The driver was brilliant and very informative, we stopped at several places along the way to take time for photo opportunities. I would recommend and love to go back and do this tour again.

Great trip, excellent guide. The weather wasn't very good (low temp and high wind) but in the end that made the scenery more spectacular. Jake was knowledgeable, funny and took good care of us. Well done.

Ian was such a great driver and guide. Made tons of dad jokes which I enjoyed hahha! He also shared a lot about australian aborigines which made this tour very insightful as well. This is my second time to the 12 Apostles and the sunset view is definitely much better than going in the afternoon (IMO). Highly recommended!

The trip overall was amazing! Great lunch, fabulous well paced stops with amazing views, we even had a koala in a tree with some fabulous native birds nearby one stop. The driver was fantastic. We had a couple college students on the bus who were extremely loud most of the trip which was not anyone's fault but might suggest some bus etiquette reminders to help with that on future trips or pass out ear plugs - they were over the top loud and talking inappropriately for mixed company.

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough, it was totally amazing. The tour was made even better by our tour guide Kate who was absolutely brilliant. She got involved with us all on the tour, she was extremely informative, was a local girl, knew everything about where we were going. Kate actually made the day. From the first stop at the Farmers Market to the last stop at the 12 Apostles it was a brilliant day. There are numerous stops during the day, for sight seeing, coffee breaks, toilet breaks, so it's not all day on a bus. When i am back in Australia, i shall being doing this again and would be spending time overnight. A day isn't long enough, once you've had a taste of all the places along this stunning coast road you will want to come back.

It was wonderful experience. We have enjoyed this trip. Our tour guide was absolutely amazing. We stopped in different places such as Maid's Rest, the 12 Apostles inevitable and Loch Are Gorge and took a lot of wonderful pictures. He gave a lot of information about the history and ecology of the region. We spend the whole day starting from 9am till 11:30pm tour was so organised. In addition our lunch was absolutely delicious ,everything was organic and home-food. We highly recommend to choose this trip and enjoy it, as we did.
