Know More about this tour

Departing Melbourne at around 10am (April to October) or 11am (November- March), we enjoy panoramic views of the city and Port Phillip Bay as you cross the Westgate Bridge, Australias longest at just under 2.6 kilometres in length.

Pass by and learn a little about Victorias second largest city, Geelong, as you make your way towards the Surf Coast, with its enchanting beach side towns and powerful swells.

Take a brief stop at the town of Anglesea, for a chance to walk alongside the beautiful Anglesea River, before continuing the scenic journey along the Great Ocean Road.

The scenic journey along the Great Ocean Road is a highlight in itself, as you absorb some truly amazing coastal scenery, with new views being revealed around every bend. There will be plenty of scenic stops, including of course a photo opportunity at the Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch at Eastern View.

At the township of Kennet River, break for lunch (own expense) with an opportunity to stroll among the sweetly-scented eucalypts to locate some of the local koalas in their native habitat. The koala population here is particularly strong and numerous sightings are guaranteed.

From here, travel onwards through the Otway Ranges to the Shipwreck Coast and the iconic rock formations of the Port Campbell National Park.

The first stop here is the stunning Loch Ard Gorge where 52 lives were lost and only 2 souls survived the wreck of the Loch Ard in 1878. Your guide will recount the legend of the Loch Ard, bringing the gorge to life in a way you never imagined. You'll have time to explore here, with more
rock formations to see, including the Razorback, the Dumpling Pots and the delightful Island Archway.

As the sun approaches the horizon head to the final sightseeing destination. You will be awestruck by the majestic monoliths of the Twelve Apostles. Enjoy a genuine spectacle watching the colours of the sky and the land transform in the evening light.

The homeward journey is broken up with a dinner stop (own expense) in the regional town of Colac. Continue on, enjoying a stunning view of the illuminated city as you again cross the Westgate Bridge on the approach to Melbourne.

With drop off right back to your inner city accommodation, youll remember this day as a true highlight of your Australian holiday.

  • Great day out and finished with sunset over the 12 Apostles which was stunning and well worth
    the long day. Guide Paul E was good and great sense of fun.

  • Excellent Guide, but unfortunately, we don't see a nice sunset due to the weather conditions.

  • Becca was a fabulous tour guide....bright, witty, kind and knowledgable. We have a wonderful time......wouldn't have asked for more!

  • Scott is a very positive, enthusiastic and charismatic guide, and pays special attention to the needs of this customers.
    It is quite hard work to both drive for so long I think it was 7 hours of driving and give a tour in a positive and entertaining way.

    The tour itself was a nice combination of country's and ANZAC history with wildlife observation coala and cacadu and landscape admiration rainforest, with 12 apostles and Loch Ard gorge being the absolute highlights!

  • This was an excellent tour! Our tour driver, Jon was very knowledgeable and had lots of funny stories. It is a full day, but well worth it. The Twelve Apostles Rock formation are something to see. We saw a couple of koalas sleeping in the trees which was a fun sight! Also, Jon gave us an added bonus, a quick walk through a rain forest! The weather was a little iffy but we still made the best of it!! Great day!!

  • We all had an amazing day. Despite the weather not coming to the party our guide Phil made up for it, he was amazing, he was funny, very entertaining and full of knowledge about all the different areas we traveled along the whole trip. We never felt rushed at any stage so felt we got to enjoy the whole experience and had ample of opportunity to take lots of photos.
    The trip exceeded our expectations.

  • What a great day out! If you have the time do the multiple day tour. I loved watching the sunset at the 12 Apostles. I'd be nice if there were some more picture stops, stops in general along the way but I understand it isn't possible because of arriving on time for watching the sunset.

  • This tour was amazing! We are very happy to book it. Our tour guide Adam was very entertaining. He taught us a lot about the history of australia and the
    Places we passed thru the ocean road. I would recommend go west tours to my friends and family.

  • Great tour, great guide, great scenery. Seeing koalas in the wild int he forest was just as amazing as the Twelve Apostles

  • Our tour conducted by Peter was fabulous. We had just been stranded for two days on a broken cruise ship and was not enjoying our once in a lifetime vacation, that is until we took this tour. It totally made our trip. We had to get up early the next day for a 14 hour flight, but it was well worth it. I totally recommend this tour and commend Peter for a great experience.
