Admire the spectacular scenery from the comfort of a luxury coach as we travel along the impressive coastline, including world famous 12 Apostles.
We begin our journey heading out of Melbourne and travelling the roads of regional Victoria, stopping for morning tea at a country town along the way. Once we hit the coast, prepare to be amazed by the spectacular views over the Southern Ocean.
The Twelve Apostles are a series of stunning limestone rock formations known throughout the world for their natural beauty. Erosion of these rocks begun approximately 20 million years ago, with waves and wind turning cliffs into caves, which eventually became arches, before becoming the 150-foot-tall columns of today. Due to weathering, there are only eight of the twelve apostles remaining today!
The Scenic Walk enables participants to witness the rock formations in even greater detail, providing spectacular photo opportunities of the Twelve Apostles.
There are a series of walks within the area, which allow you to view the Twelve Apostles from many different perspectives.
Loch Ard Gorge is our next stop on the Great Ocean Road Day Tour. Loch Ard Gorge was named after the famous 1878 shipwreck on Mutton Bird Island. The majority of passengers on the ship drowned, however, a few fortunate teenagers were lucky enough to survive the disaster by being washed up into the only safe gorge along the coast, now known as Loch Ard Gorge. This secluded beach is unique in that it is relatively calm in comparison to the majority of coastal waters within the region.
Port Campbell is a seaside township with cafes, bakeries, boutique stores and galleries. When in Port Cambell, take the opportunity to explore the area and purchase lunch (at your own expense.)
We continue our journey travelling along the Great Ocean Road taking in the picturesque coastal towns, spectacular coastal scenery and tranquil rainforest along the way. In the afternoon we stop at Apollo Bay for some afternoon tea (own expense), before continuing for a photo opportunity at Memorial Arch.
The Great Ocean Road was originally built by soldiers returning from war between 1919 and 1932. Memorial Arch, was designed and constructed in memory of over 3000 soldiers who assisted in the creation of the Great Ocean Road after World War I. The Memorial Arch is the entrance from Melbourne to The Great Ocean Road, which is now officially heritage listed and passes through many of Victoria's eye-catching sights such as the Twelve Apostles.
Our journey concludes as we head back to Melbourne admiring the lights of the city as we cross the West Gate Bridge.
