You will also be in clear viewing distance of Bells Surfing Beach. Enjoy morning tea on site. Then, move on to the next stop to take captivating photos at the iconic Great Ocean Road sign. Take another guided wildlife tour to see koalas and colourful parrots in their natural environment. Stop at the coastal town of Apollo Bay where you can purchase your lunch from the many restaurants and cafes.

Take in the fresh smell of the trees. Then, tide and wind permitting, take your time viewing the 12 Apostles from sea level on the beach.

The driving was great by the driver and he was very nice to me and very helpful considering I had a blister on my left foot. The whole day was great except the weather wasn't and I did what was expected
