Full description
Leaving Melbourne city in the late morning, drive over the West Gate Bridge and begin your journey to the Great Ocean Road, starting along the Surf Coast. Stop at the Great Ocean Road Chocolatiers for free samples of their delicious creations. They also boast award-winning ice cream so you can start your tour off in proper holiday mode. Lunch can be purchased here at your own expense, or you are welcome to bring your own food to eat on the bus. 

Enjoy the views of the "Round the Twist" lighthouse before stopping to take a picture with the Great Ocean Road sign at Memorial Arch. As the road twists and turns, your journey will continue along the coastline with stunning views. Your next tour stop will be to spot some koalas in their natural habitat, among the eucalyptus trees. As you pass through the seaside town of Apollo Bay, the road takes you away from the coastline and into the Otway Rainforest. Those ocean views will return though, as you reach the coastline again on the rugged Shipwreck Coast.

Listen to the tale of the Loch Ard and take a walk down onto the sands of the gorgeous Loch Ard Gorge. As the sun sets over the Southern Ocean, your tour will arrive at the Twelve Apostles. Having soaked in the beautiful views you will head back to the bus for our return journey. Stop for dinner (at your own expense) in a country town along the way. Relax and take in the countryside as the city lights of Melbourne begin to appear on the horizon.

The Great Ocean Road sunset trip is a must do excursion. The views, sights, places you visit are breathtaking and to watch the sunset over the apostles at the end is something else! (And you get loads of great photos!) Our guide was Shannara who was very bubbly, friendly and made us all feel very welcome. This is a full day tour so be prepared to get back around 11:30pm and along the way you visit a number of places starting with the chocolatier! Try the free chocolate on entry and indulge on the amazing ice cream...the 'scoopage' as I call it is vast, you get loads of ice cream for your money!! We then stopped at other villages including a place to see the koalas in the wild (we saw 2). Overall this was a great trip, the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was due to pick up being 30 minutes late and not having loads of time at each place, limited usually to 20 mins although you get 45 at the apostles.
