12 Apostles & Great Ocean Road Day Tour
Cruise down to the shipwreck coast to witness the famous 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, Gibson Steps & The Great Ocean Road.
On this laid-back small group (max 8 guest) day adventure, we’ll start the morning off with some hot tea or coffee before we head down to the breathtaking 12 Apostles. From here we will take an easy 2.2km return walk along the last section of the Great Ocean Walk to Gibson Steps. The 86 steps are carved into the 70-metre vertical high cliffs and from the beach the views are spectacular.
On our return from Gibson Steps we will take a stroll along the boardwalk of the 12 Apostles and you will witness the majestic monolith limestone stacks firsthand. This place will leave you with everlasting memories.
A crowd favourite is up next with the historic Loch Ard Gorge. We will take a few short walks here to discovery the Razorback and the dark history of the wreck of the Loch Ard.
It’s time for lunch at one of the local cafes in Port Campbell. The beautiful seaside town makes the perfect spot to refuel for our next adventure.
Working our way in reverse along the Great Ocean Road our next stop is Melba Gully. Known as the Jewel of the Otways, you’ll witness prolific plant growth and dense rainforest consisting of Myrtle Beach, Blackwood and Tree-ferns on this moderate 2km circuit walk.
It’s now time to sit back and enjoy some of the world’s best coastal views as we wind around the GOR stopping in Apollo Bay for a cheeky ice-cream before arriving at Kennett River. Here you can say g’day to some of the local koala’s, king parrots & kangaroos before continuing along to the beautiful town of Lorne. You can have a quick swim in the ocean (summer) walk along the beach or simply grab an afternoon snack before heading back to Melbourne.
