> 9:30am Quick stop at Colac Heritage Park to grab a coffee, stretch some legs, and have a bathroom break.
> We then drive down through dairy farming countryside to The Great Ocean Road, arriving at the 12 Apostles car park at 11 am. Here we will spend 45 minutes looking down on the remaining Apostles, magnificent cliffs, and smashing waves. You will have plenty of time to get lots of photos for the many memories you will take with you. There is a kiosk available if you are feeling peckish.
