You will arrive at the 12 Apostles hours before the other buses and will be able to get those perfect photos without having to compete with the masses.If you were thinking about adding on a helicopter flight at the 12 Apostles, the reverse tour option will reduce your waiting time and give you more time at the coastal viewing points and boardwalks. Admire the mighty limestone stacks from the cliff side trails, walk down onto the sand in Loch Ard Gorge and learn the history of the shipwreck coast. 

Enjoy the spectacular ocean views, ancient rainforest and wildlife as your wind your way along the Great Ocean Road back to the city.
