Great Ocean Road Day Trip Including Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and Apollo Bay
On this day-tour from Melbourne, experience the incredible Twelve Apostles as you stand on the beach with the sand between your toes looking out towards this iconic limestone formation. See stunning coastal scenery as you stop at Gibson's Steps, Loch Ard Gorge, Island Arch/Razorback, Apollo Bay and Port Campbell. For morning tea enjoy an Aussie style Bush Billy Tea with lamingtons, or if you’re feeling adventurous, taste some of Australia's iconic Vegemite.
After meeting your tour guide, travel approximately 2-hours to your first stop, the Twelve Apostles. Here, you’ll enjoy a unique look at the Twelve Apostles located right on the water's edge at Gibson's Steps, a terrific opportunity to take amazing photos. There is also a stop at the boardwalk lookout to get a vast look out to the Twelve Apostles (stop is approximately 45-minutes long). Weather permitting there is also the opportunity to take a breathtaking helicopter ride over the coast (own expense).
Next, witness the power of this majestic coastline with the golden sandy beaches, stark cliffs and history at Loch Ard Gorge. The gorge is the site of the Loch Ard shipwreck. There is also time to visit Island Arch and Razorback, formed by the rough seas (approximately a 45-minute stop)
For morning tea your driver guide will treat you to an Aussie style Bush Billy tea served with the traditional lamington cake (approximately 25-minutes). There are also crackers to have with Australia's favorite spread, Vegemite. Stop at the stunning seaside resort town of Apollo Bay, here you can purchase lunch, perhaps some fish and chips as you sit on the beach. Before the journey back to Melbourne there is an afternoon tea stop at the popular seaside town of Port Campbell (own expense, stop approximately 20 minutes).
