The fifth-longest bridge in Australia is the Westgate Bridge, and it is a stunning sight to see as it spans over the Yarra River. This bridge is important because it links Melbourne’s Western Suburbs and Inner City (CBD) area with the industrial area and the city of Geelong.
This cable-stayed box girder bridge is a sight to see when you are visiting Melbourne. Traveling over it is it by bus is a spectacular experience.

Lunch at Apollo Bay
Many stunning restaurants in Apollo Bay can tantalize your taste buds.
Sit and have a mellows lunch with the group and enjoy the scenery of the beautiful Australian coastline.
Pick up a sweet treat from the bakery and then head to the Otway National Park.
Otway National Park
The Great Otway National Park is along a rugged coastline that includes mountains, beaches, and waterfalls. It truly is an incredible sight to see and is one of the most loved parts of this tour down the Great Ocean Road.
The park features something for the whole family, the Otway Fly. This treetop walk puts you in one with nature as you see koalas and other indigenous animals in their natural habitat.
Once you have ticked the Otway walk off your bucket list, it is off to follow the shipwreck coast.
Follow the Shipwreck Coast
The 130km stretch of coastline is home to the Twelve Apostles, a group of limestone rock formations.
There have been over 600 shipwrecks on this coastline hence the name. The ocean waters are known to be rough and dangerous.
You drive along the passing Shipwreck coast in your journey to visit the Port Campbell National Park, the home of the Twelve Apostles.
Port Campbell National Park
The southern Australian ocean has carved away beautiful rock formations along the coastline.
It is home to a host of local flora such as spider orchids, sun orchids, bower spinach, and coast daisy busy.
Some of the fauna found in the Port Campbell National Park are honeyeaters, fairy-wrens, and southern emu.
These are just a few exciting things that you can experience in the Port Campbell National Park. Let us not forget the main attraction, The Twelve Apostles.
The Twelve Apostles
The limestone cliffs that hang of the mainland began forming 15 million years ago, and thanks to the windy Southern Ocean, the softer limestone started forming caves in the cliffs.
The caves overtime became arches, and they collapsed on top of each other, some reaching as high as 40 meters. If you view the Twelve Apostles at sunset or sunrise, you see how they change color from dark to brilliant sandy yellow under the full sun.
That is what you came for and is the main highlight of this fun-filled excursion.
The Loch Ard Gorge
Inside the Campbell National Park, you find the Loch and Gorge, one of the most frequented stop-off points on the Great Ocean Road. It is just a 3-minute drive from the Twelve Apostles and is worth the visit.
The Gorge is home to a smooth pearlescent bay with a constant stream of incoming clear blue water. Although it looks like something out of a fantasy novel, Loch Ard has a fascinating history.
Visit the Loch Ard to find out more about the shipwreck coastline and learn about the story of the 19th-century shipwreck that happened there.
Lastly. If time and weather permits, we visit the natural wonder of the Gibson Steps.
The Gibson Steps
An only 2-minute drive from the Twelve Apostles is the Gibson Steps. It is an area of the cliff on the south coast of Australia that a local settler carves into steps.
This travel route was used by the Kirrae Whurrong people when traveling down to the ocean.
As mentioned, conditions can change rapidly, determining whether you can down to the beach via the steps.
If you manage to get down to the beach, you get to meet Gog and Magog, the nicknames given to the giant limestone stacks. Marvel at these gigantic natural beauties that are in the ocean. They are purely majestic.
Once the day is over, the long trip back home commences. It is a 200km journey, so be sure to grab a snack on the way home.
Visiting the Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and coastal towns along the way, our Great Ocean Road & Twelve Apostles tour is by far our most popular tour and there are plenty of reasons why.
