Stop for lunch at a local restaurant in the seaside town of Apollo Bay.
After lunch the road and the ocean part ways for the next few hours as you head into the Otway Rainforest. A short 30-minute guided walk will take you right into the heart of the rainforest. Youll be dwarfed by some of the largest tree species in the world.
Wind further through the forest and return to ocean and make a stop at the mighty Shipwreck Coast. Here youll spend a large portion of the day exploring the 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and Gibson Steps, all a short drive from one another. Your guide will share the tales of disaster, destruction and survival.
After a long day, relax on the drive back to Melbourne and reflect on a great day spent on the Great Ocean Road.
