There’s nothing quite as special as witnessing a spectacular sunset at the Twelve Apostles, on the Great Ocean Road.
The 12 Apostles viewing platform is beautifully positioned to give the best outlook over the Southern Ocean as the sun sinks down below the waves. While this natural show is playing out, the famous limestone stacks stand in between you and and the setting sun. A perfect picture opportunity!
A visit to the Great Ocean Road, in particular the famous Twelve Apostles is on the top of many peoples bucket list while visiting the city of Melbourne. There is nothing like finally seeing a natural wonder in real life as opposed to just seeing it on TV or a magazine. A sense of awe radiates from it and you’ll be mesmerized while casting your focus toward the natural beauty. Much like Uluru (Ayers Rock) in central Australia where different times of the day will give you a different and extraordinary perspective, the same applies to the Twelve Apostles at sunset.
If there is any recommendation that we would pass onto any future visitors to the Great Ocean Road is that you make sure you view the Twelve Apostles at sunset. Not only do you get to see this icon at its very best, you also avoid the crowds at the viewing platform that can be very congested during the day, making your Twelve Apostles visit an unbelievable experience.
Join in our Sunset Great Ocean Road Tour to see the best of this iconic coastline and finish off the day with an incredible show put on by nature at the 12 Apostles Lookout.
