Seen in Melbourne, near Fed Square, in early December 2011 is 11 (3711AO), a now withdrawn PMCSA Apollo bodied Mercedes O303 new in 1986 to Pioneer Trailways.
 
 

On a Mercedes OH1625 chassis, this PMCA Apollo coach, 109 (3727AO), dates from 1990. It was purchased from stock by Picton Coaches in New South Wales and later passed to Minden Bus Service in Queensland. It reached Victoria initially with O'Shannessy's in Sorrento, then Blue Ridge Coaches of Hastings before acquisition by Peninsula Bus Lines within the Grenda group. It is seen in South Coast Bus' Wonthaggi depot in March 2014. South Coast and Phillip Island are both owned by the Melbourne based Moreland Group. Both country based companies are adopting a new blue and yellow livery, whereas the parent company's operations are in a similar shade of green to the buses on this page.

On charter in Melbourne, outside the Arts Precinct, in April 2010 is a third Apollo, but this time only a 34 seater on an MAN 14.230 HOCL-H chassis. It was acquired from the Royal Australian Air Force.
 
 

The MAN is seen here four years later on a bus service at the Wonthaggi main terminus.
