  • Duration: 12 hours, approx

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 onward through the Otway Ranges to the Shipwreck Coast. And the iconic rock formations of Port Campbell National Park

Loch Ard Gorge

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.

Sunset at the 12 Apostles

As the sun approaches the horizon, we make our way to our final sightseeing destination. Enjoy a genuine spectacle with the 12 Apostles while watching the colors 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.

With a drop-off right back at your inner city accommodation, you’ll remember this day as a true highlight of your Australian holiday.

We do not include meals on this tour, but there are opportunities to purchase meals at appropriate times throughout the day. Guests are also welcome to bring food with them if they prefer.
