Description

Day 1 – Melbourne to Great Ocean Road

We begin our tour from Melbourne to Adelaide heading out of the City towards the Great Ocean Road.  Stop to watch surfers in action at famed beaches such as Bells Beach and Torquay (home of surf brands Rip Curl and Quicksilver).  Visit the artistic beachside villages of Apollo Bay and Lorne before a stop at a historical section of the Great Ocean Road, carved through cliffs by returned WWI servicemen.  Walk through the Great Otway National Park, home to some of the world’s oldest temperate rainforest.  There’s no better place to finish the day than the famed Twelve Apostles, best appreciated at sunset from the boardwalk.  Take the opportunity to view this spectacular sight from the skies in a helicopter (extra cost).  Tonight, we sleep in dormitory style accommodation on the Great Ocean Road. (No Meals)

 Day 2 – Great Ocean Road to the Grampians

Continuing along the Great Ocean Road & Shipwreck Coast, we stop at more extraordinary rock formations including the Bay of Martyrs, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge.  For lunch, we stop at Tower Hill Reserve; home to a dormant volcano, active over 30 thousand years and now transformed into a stunning wetland eco-system, abundant with wildlife.

Arriving at the Grampians in the afternoon, we visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about local Aboriginal history before taking a walk to Mackenzie Waterfalls.  Before sunset when the local wildlife come out to play, we walk to The Balconies, Boroka or Reeds Lookout; all providing magnificent views and photo opportunities of the surrounding area.  Tonight, we sleep in shared wooden cabin accommodation, with the mountains towering around us.

Day 3 – The Grampians to Adelaide

An early rise today as we hike “The Pinnacle” in the Grampians National Park; well worth the effort for such awe-inspiring views.  At the peak your tour guide will point out the surrounding scenery as the sun rises.  We will enjoy lunch in the Grampians before hitting the highway and arriving into Adelaide city at approximately 7pm.
