"We call it a tour because we can’t think of another name for what we do.
Taking you to places and showing you things that you may only get to see and do once in your life.
Think about that.How can we possibly not enjoy doing that? It’s exciting to us well"
The Shipwreck Coast.
Because there are many more Limestone Pillars on The Shipwreck Coast*, some even more spectacular, we now give people the opportunity to see them as well. We travel a much quicker road. We leave Geelong at the same time, 8.00am and arrive at the 12 Apostles before 11 am.
On the drive down our first brief stop if required, will be a toilet break only in regional town of Colac. It’s an approx. drive of 1 hour. Prior to arriving at The 12 Apostles we will drop into G.O.R.G.E. Chocolates. They make a great coffee and we you treat yourself to some Lamingtons. Australia's favorite cake. It’s also an Alpaca Farm and you can get the chance to hand feed them.
30 minute’s here and then a short drive to the 12 Apostles. We realize that you have come a long way, and you will probably not return, so you will not be hurried. 30 to 45minutes is average.
From there a short drive to ‘London Bridge’, which did actually fall down, and then then another short drive to The Bay of Islands. Probably our favorite rock and island formations on the Shipwreck Coast. Along this section of coast, there have been around 800 ships lost. Only 200 can be accounted for.
From there and subject to time, we will head to Timboon. The home of what many people believe is the best Ice Cream on the Planet!!
Arriving back between 4 and 5 pm.
The 12 Apostles now becomes the start of the experience and not the end. From there we travel to other iconic names, such as London Bridge, The Grotto, Bay of Martyrs and so on. You still have the same opportunities to walk onto viewing platforms and onto beaches.
*The Shipwreck Coast is generally regarded as starting at the 12 Apostles and stretching to The Bay of Islands.
