12 Apostles and Great Ocean Road Express Tour

Overview

The Great Ocean Road tour from Melbourne covers almost 600 km, which makes it a very long day with lots of winding roads and an array of stunning scenery. If you’re only in Melbourne for a few days and want to see more of the city/surrounding sites, if you want to tick the 12 Apostles off your bucket list, or if you don’t want to drive through all the winding roads, this is the tour for you. We start this tour at 7.30 am and return to Melbourne by 3.00 pm.

You will begin your journey on a direct route to the Port Campbell National Park, which is about 3 hours in duration. This is the area that is home to all the most unique rock formations such as the 12 Apostles. Your first stop will be the 12 Apostles, followed by the Loch Ard Gorge, and to finish the highlighted area, you will visit the Razor Back. Immerse your senses in the divine natural beauty of these spectacular formations- there’s no place on Earth like this unique region!

This tour also works well as an evening tour to watch the sun set over the 12 Apostles.
