Our driver/guide, Steve, conducted our tour in reverse so our stops were not so crowded. The 12 Apostles were absolutely amazing! Loch Ard and Gorge did not disappoint! Especially loved hearing the story of Eva and Tom. Steve was very knowledgeable about the area and all of our stops. We saw 2 koala in the wild and fed King Parrots from our hands. The Great Ocean Road is awe inspiring and a must see!
