Visit the world famous 12 Apostles at sunset on the 1 day adventure along the Victoria’s Great Ocean Road.
Departing Melbourne at around 10 a.m on the Great Ocean Road sunset tour. 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 kilometers in length. We pass by and learn a little about Victoria’s second-largest city, Geelong. As we make our way towards the Surf Coast. With its enchanting beachside 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.
At the township of Kennett River, we break for lunch (at your own expense). With an opportunity to stroll among the sweetly-scented eucalyptus trees to locate local koalas in their native habitat. From here, we travel onwards through the Otway Ranges to the Shipwreck Coast. And the iconic rock formations of Port Campbell National Park.
Our first stop on the Great Ocean Road Sunset tour is Loch Ard Gorge, where 52 lives were lost and only two souls survived the wreck of Loch Ard in 1878. Your guide will recount the legend of 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, and the delightful Island Archway.
We have been advised by Parks Victoria, that access to the gorge at Loch Ard Gorge will be closed until some time in early 2024. The closure is due to dangerous cliff movement near the Upper Lookout, which could cause a collapse.
We will still be visiting this location, as there are many other interesting and spectacular viewpoints around the area above the gorge.
As the sun approaches the horizon, we make our way to our final sightseeing destination. Enjoy a genuine spectacle the 12 Apostles while watching the colours of the sky and the land transform in the evening light.
We break up the homeward journey with a dinner stop (at your own expense) in the regional town of Colac. We then continue on, enjoying views of the illuminated city as we again cross the Westgate Bridge on the approach to Melbourne.
