Excursão de dia inteiro na Great Ocean Road e pôr do sol nos 12 Apóstolos saindo de Melbourne
Comece seu dia viajando pela segunda maior cidade de Victoria, Geelong, antes de seguir em direção ao sul, à cidade litorânea de Torquay, entrada da Great Ocean Road.
Admire as vistas litorâneas impressionantes enquanto percorre as cidades panorâmicas de Lorne, Apollo Bay e Port Campbell, além de visitar o icônico farol Split-Point, o mais antigo e resistente ao tempo da Austrália. Esse farol está em uso desde 1848 e foi um sinal para milhares de imigrantes no mar de que havia terra próxima após vários meses a bordo. Haverá muitas oportunidades para ver a vida selvagem nativa, como coalas, cangurus cinza e uma variedade de pássaros. Parada em Kennett River para observação de coalas e desfrutar de um almoço em um café incluso.
Em seguida, caminhe até as Cordilheiras de Otway e veja Loch Ard Gorge e Gibsons Steps na extremidade oeste da Great Ocean Road antes de chegar às famosas formações rochosas de calcário, Doze Apóstolos. Formadas naturalmente pela erosão, essas formações de calcário eram originalmente cavernas e arcos que caíram devido às condições climáticas difíceis nas águas azuis transparentes do Parque Nacional de Port Campbell.
Antes de retornar a Melbourne, admire o deslumbrante pôr do sol sobre o litoral espetacular, que, sem dúvida, será um dos muitos destaques do seu dia.

Great customer experience, chiefly down to a great bunch of folk, but importantly, our tour guide BEAR !!! He was excellent and kept the whole show on the road for 13 hours !!! Plenty comfort breaks and refreshment stops. Highly recommended, Graham (Scotland)
Ian was such a great driver and guide. Made tons of dad jokes which I enjoyed hahha! He also shared a lot about australian aborigines which made this tour very insightful as well. This is my second time to the 12 Apostles and the sunset view is definitely much better than going in the afternoon (IMO). Highly recommended!
You can enjoy everything along the Great Ocean Road by joining the Bunyip tour. Our tour guide Jun is very informative and helpful. It is a very long day which takes you almost 13 hours of ride. The experience is great with wonderful arrangement.
Go see 12 Apostles, which is amazing, just make sure to avoid Duff Man who is not a good tour guide. He skipped stops in the listing, until the customers in the group corrected him. He also rushed the group through sunset at 12 Apostles and actually left before sunset. Given that this tour is emphasizing both the 12 Apostles and seeing that particular site at sunset to rush the group at that point was particularly irritating. Great scenery, bad guide.
Our driver, Brett, is extremely knowledgeable. He went out of his way to serve us, and explained everything to us. He showed us many beautiful sceneries. The vehicle is however very old and looks like a 1950s model. The vehicle is so crowded and small for a 16 hours trip. Timing is poor. Lunch is at 11:00 am, and dinner is after we come back which is 10 pm. Our kids were so hungry. Each stops were just a few minutes long, so it wasn't relaxing at all. We would have liked more time to take a short walk at the rainforest or at Kenneth river.
The scenery is breathtaking - truly a stunning place. The tour was fairly well organized with rest-and-activity stops every 1-2 hours. The first stop at a aboriginal wildlife park was a waste of time. I've been to a number of these parks in Australia, and this one was pathetic. They had exactly 1 kangaroo very cute and friendly, though, two anti-social wallabies, and two emus - that's it. So everyone crowds the poor kangaroo, trying to feed it. The company should find a better wildlife park, or skip this altogether and spend more time at the other stops, like the rainforest or the wild koalas and birds. It's a long drive, and the driver was anxious to keep us on schedule, but eventually it started to feel stressful. The driver was knowledgeable and polite, but I wouldn't exactly call him approachable and friendly. The bus was old, with a rough ride, and the worst part was that the windows were constantly fogging, obscuring the incredible views. Overall, though, this was definitely one of the best trips I've done here in Australia. By the way, it turned out that the prices people paid for this trip varied wildly. So it's worth to shop around.
