Our guide to Great Ocean Road Sunset Tour
Our journey begins around 10.00 am from Melbourne, treating you to panoramic views of the city and Port Phillip Bay as we cross the impressive Westgate Bridge. Next, we pass through Geelong, Victoria's second-largest city, before heading to the charming Surf Coast with its picturesque coastal towns and powerful waves.
We make a brief stop in Anglesea to enjoy a leisurely walk by the beautiful Anglesea River, then continue our scenic drive along the Great Ocean Road. In Kennett River, you'll have the chance to find koalas in their natural habitat while enjoying lunch on your own.
As we venture through the Otway Ranges to the Shipwreck Coast, our first stop is Loch Ard Gorge, where we'll hear the gripping tale of the Loch Ard shipwreck in 1878. Explore this area, including the Razorback, Dumpling Pots, and Island Archway.
As the sun begins its descent, we head to the grand Twelve Apostles, where you'll be mesmerized by the magnificent monoliths and the captivating transformation of the landscape and sky in the evening light.
We break for dinner (at your own expense) in Colac during the return journey. Finally, with drop-off at your inner-city accommodation, this day will surely stand out as a memorable highlight of your Australian adventure.
Daily, year-round. This tour does not run on 25th December.
Hotel pick-ups commence between 9.00am - 10.00am between April and October and 10.00am - 11.00pm between November and March.
Around 12 hours (Tour returns seasonally between 9pm - midnight).
