Tour Description

Day 1
We escape the city and cruise through the scenic Adelaide Hills with a morning stop to grab a bite to eat and a coffee. We stop for lunch before entering Halls Gap, gateway to the famed Grampians National Park. As we drive through the windy roads of the Grampians, spotting emus and kangaroos, we make our way to McKenzie Water Falls. Be amazed by the majesty and beauty of this waterfall and its surrounds. At around dusk, when wildlife, such as wallabies, kangaroos, cockatoos and kookaburras, come out to play, we walk through rocky outcrops and forests to The Balconies, another stunning geological formation. After, you get the chance to view Boroka or Reeds Lookout as the sun goes down. Tonight, we sleep in dormitory style accommodation in the heart of the Grampians.

Day 2
After breakfast, we hike for 2 hours to The Pinnacle, the finest viewpoint in the Grampians. At the peak, we take in the surrounding scenery as the sun rises and your tour guide will point out the landmarks of the area. Before we depart this wondrous place, we visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about the local Aboriginal history. For lunch, we stop somewhere truly spectacular: The Tower Hill Reserve, home to a dormant volcano which was once active over 30 thousand years ago, it has now transformed into a stunning wetland and lake eco-system, abundant with Australian wildlife.
The magnificent Great Ocean Road awaits! We stop at several extraordinary rock formations along the Shipwreck Coast, such as the Bay of Martyrs, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge. For many, the most amazing sight is the famed 12 Apostles. You can even view these sights aboard a helicopter flight (extra cost). This spectacular collection of limestone stacks is best appreciated at sunset from the boardwalk. Tonight, we stay in dormitory style accommodation on the Great Ocean Road.

Day 3
We start our final day with an easy walk through the Great Otway National Park, which boasts some of the world’s oldest temperate rainforest. Sections of the Great Ocean Road were carved through cliffs by servicemen returning after World War I, and offer some of the most impressive coastal roads you’ll ever see. You can take a quick dip in the ocean or explore the artistic beachside villages of Apollo Bay and Lorne. You can watch surfers in action at famed beaches such as Bells Beach and Torquay (home of the surf brand outlets Rip Curl and Quicksilver) before making our way to The Big City.
We arrive into Melbourne at approximately 7pm.
