Great Ocean Road Sunset Tour (November-March)

See the sunset over the Twelve Apostles on our spectacular Great Ocean Road Sunset Bus Tour.

Departing Melbourne at around 11:00am, we enjoy panoramic views of the city and Port Phillip Bay as we cross the Westgate Bridge, Australia’s longest at just under 2.6 kilometres in length. We pass by and learn a little about Victoria’s second largest city, Geelong, as we make our way down towards the Surf Coast, with its enchanting beach side towns and powerful swells.

We make 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 we absorb some truly amazing coastal scenery, with new views being revealed around every bend. We make plenty of scenic stops, including of course a photo opportunity at the Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch at Eastern View.

After a short trip we visit the town of Lorne, home of the largest organised ocean swim competition called the “Pier to Pub” swim. We will have a nice lunch in Lorne - all this while enjoying the amazing view of the coast line of the Great Ocean Road.

At the township of Kennet River we make a brief side trip into the sweetly-scented eucalyptus forest to locate some of the local koalas in the native habitat. The koala population here is particularly strong and numerous sightings are guaranteed.

From here we travel onwards through the Otway Ranges to the Shipwreck Coast and the iconic rock formations of the Port Campbell National Park. Our first stop here is the stunning Loch Ard Gorge where 52 lives were lost & 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. We take time to explore here, with more rock formations to see, including the Razorback, the Dumpling Pots & the delightful Island Archway.

Our next destination is Gibson Steps, where we have the opportunity to descend the steps to Gibson’s Beach below. This beach is renowned for its powerful swells and offers visitors an unforgettable view of the two enormous limestones stacks known as “Gog & Magog”.

At this time of year, the sun sets late in the day, so we visit the township of Princetown for an opportunity to purchase dinner (own expense). As the sun approaches the horizon we make our way from Princetown to our final sightseeing destination. You’ll be awestruck by the majestic monoliths of the Twelve Apostles Enjoy a genuine spectacle watching the colours of the sky & the land transform in the evening light.

On the homeward journey you’ll reflect on an amazing day before enjoying a stunning view of the illuminated city as we again cross the Westgate Bridge on the approach to Melbourne. With drop off right back to your inner city accommodation, you’ll remember this day as a true highlight of your Australian holiday.
