- Port Campbell:
Marvel the huge and iconic stacks of limestone formations and see the massive natural erosion. Sheltered by cliffs and Norfolk pines, see the contrast between lush evergreen rainforest and barren rugged coast.
- Twelve Apostles:
Next, your bus will take you to the tour’s main highlight, the Twelve Apostles. These stunning limestone rock formations are a result of erosion that began more than 20 million years ago. Head down to the beach along the Gibson Steps and be dwarfed by these enormous rock stacks as your guide shares the fascinating history of its evolution. Walk around the area for closer access to the shoreline. You may also head to the cliff viewing area for great photo opportunities.
- Loch Ard Gorge:
Next, you will see the Loch Ard Gorge, one of the other dramatic attractions on the Great Ocean Road. Climb the staircase that leads down to the beach to the heart of Shipwreck Coast. Here, 52 lives were lost and only two souls survived the wreck of the Loch Ard in 1878.
- London Bridge:
Up next, head to see the famous London Bridge, a naturally-formed arch in the ocean, and hear about its intriguing history. Take in the sweeping views from the viewing platforms located near the arch.
- Apollo Bay:
Your last stop on the tour before heading back to Melbourne will be the Apollo Bay. Explore this beautiful seaside village located at the foothills of the Otways. Relax and enjoy lunch (direct payable) at one of the many cafés or take a leisurely stroll along the beachfront before heading to your next stop.
Admire the spectacular night lights of Melbourne as you cross the West Gate Bridge on your way back to Melbourne. You will be dropped off to your hotel after the tour.
