Drove down from Melbourne, quite a long drive but the views along Great Ocean Road are worth it. Then arriving at the 12 Apostles- Wow. Aptly named because you can see the work of God in forming this natural spectacular site. My recommendation- Go. Not to be missed

The first congratulations belong to the Go West tours and our super driver Trevis. The second congratulations belongs to our friend Tessy who recommended this tour to us which is going to be an unforgettable experience. The whole trip through the Great Ocean Road with the amazing driver we had, who was not only the driver but the guide too,... More

If you are driving the Great Ocean Road you will most certainly plan to see the 12 apostles. You park across the road and walk under the road in a purpose made tunnel to a walkway that allows you to view safely. This area is very busy and we saw the most tourists of any place whilst we were here... More

I have seen some natural wonders in my time but these are incredible. We were staying in Geelong & opted for the 2.5 hour drive inland through Colac. It may not be as pretty as the coast road, but a pretty drive none the less. I had not expected to see them from one viewing platform & was very pleasantly... More

We went to Apollo Bay for a holiday and decided to go to the 12 Apostles as we were already half way there. The drive was long but scenic. There is not a lot of places to stop a long the way so be prepared. Once there, there is a visitors centre where you park and walk underneath the great... More

We let Port Melbourne at around 08.30. 5 adults & a 4yr old in an 8 seater van. We made good time & followed the Great Ocean Road. The views were amazing & well worth the time it took us to get there. We Stopped in Lorne for a drink & toilet stop. A pretty place & would have been... More
