    Exceptional sunset

    Terrific sunset at the Great Ocean Road, a little chilly this time of year though

    Chocolates, Koalas & a beautiful Sunset

    We loved our first stop at the Great Ocean Road Chocolate store with lovely samples and cafe. The Great Ocean Road Tour was fantastic and we loved watching the sunset at the 12 Apostles.

    by Henry on Wildlife Tours Australia

    In spite of the fact that our day encountered a few raindrops and wind, the coastline is great and dazzling. Seeing the 12 Apostles was shockingly better than the photos. Our guide, Grant, gave us a lot of time at each spot en route and gave us dynamite data. I would profoundly suggest everybody going by the region do this visit.

    Incredible tour

    Incredible outing and magnificent guide. My lone thump is that the day was long with numerous extensive van stays, and little shoreline time. I would likely skirt the primary stop with the flying creatures and get to the Ocean Road as fast as conceivable where you have marvelous perspectives and potential shorelines to stop at. Additionally consider the turn around course which would get you to the Apostles on the prior side, possibly before the thousands dive toward the evening. The shoreline at end where the ship was destroyed is the feature of the day. Wish we could have remained longer there.

    Exceptional 12 Apostles

    Extraordinary trek, Twelve Apostles were exceptional. Be set up for a difficult day - 14 hours, secured 430 km's however well justified, despite all the trouble. .Additionally got the opportunity to see Koala bears and encourage beautiful parrots at a trailer stop. Certainly justified regardless of the cost of the trek. Just drawback was the climate, blustery and dim early in the day for the drive up the drift.

    This was one of our most loved things we did while in Australia. The penguins were so charming, we had parcels additional time than different visits to look as they came up the shoreline. Our guide gave the best exhortation about when and how to see the penguins.

    Simply Amazing!

    An fantastic day trip from Melbourne...a bit too short since there are so many spectacular places to see..the 12 Apostles lookout is magnificent. Also we stopped to othe 2 lookouts on Great Ocean Road: Gibson steps and Loch Ard Gorge. The 30 min Rainforest walk Was also great and the stop to Kennett River was a big surprise to see the King parrots and koala . The guide was very knowledgeable and a good entertainer...highly recommended to anyone traveling in that area.
