great ocean road, and
12 The Apostles.
This tour takes you to the magnificent 12 Apostles on The Great Ocean Road, overlooking The Southern Ocean, a place where many ships have come to grief.
We run 2 tours to the 12 Apostles. Although people know that they want to go to the 12 Apostles, they are not sure which tour to select. Both are quite different.
The Great Ocean Road to the 12 Apostles follows the coast down through several towns. It is the prettiest way, but slow. Leave Geelong at 8 am and arrive at the Apostles around 1 pm. On this tour, the 12 Apostles becomes the destination.
Because there are many more Limestone Pillars on The Shipwreck Coast*, some even more spectacular, we now give people the opportunity to see them as well. We travel a much quicker road. We leave Geelong at the same time, 8.00am and arrive at the 12 Apostles before 11 am.
The 12 Apostles now becomes the start of the experience and not the end. From there we travel to other iconic names, such as London Bridge, The Grotto, Bay of Martyrs and so on. You still have the same opportunities to walk onto viewing platforms and onto beaches.
*The Shipwreck Coast is generally regarded as starting at the 12 Apostles and stretching to The Bay of Islands.
