Experience the rugged beauty of the Grampians National Park and one of the world's best coastal routes, the Great Ocean Road, on this 3 day experience from Adelaide to Melbourne.

Day One - Adelaide to Grampians

This morning, escape the city and cruise through the beautiful Adelaide Hills and on to Halls Gap, gateway to the famed Grampians National Park. Around dusk, when all the wildlife comes out to play, walk through rocky outcrops and forests to the Balconies, a stunning geological formation. Tonight there is time to relax over a delicious dinner.

Day Two - Grampians to Great Ocean Road

This morning prepare for a challenging but rewarding hike up to the Pinnacle, possibly the finest view in the Grampians. Next, you will visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about the local Aboriginal history. It is then time to depart the beautiful Grampians and have lunch in a place that is truly spectacular: the Tower Hill Reserve, home to wetlands, wildlife and a dormant volcano.

Continue to the magnificent Great Ocean Road and stop at places along the Shipwreck Coast such as, the Bay of Martyrs, London Bridge and Lock Ard Gorge. For many the most amazing site is the famed Twelve Apostles. This spectacular collection of limestone stacks is best seen at sunset. Tonight there is more time to relax and compare photos of the beautiful places we have been so far.

Day Three - Great Ocean Road to Melbourne

Your final day on tour starts with an easy walk through the Otway National Park, a beautiful temperate Rainforest. You will then continue along the Great Ocean Road, take in the breathtaking scenery as it is some of the most impressive coastal roads you will ever see. There is time for a swim in the ocean or explore the artistic beachside villages of Apollo Bay and Lorne. You can watch the surfers in action at the famed beaches of Bells Beach and Torquay. There is also time at Kennett River to view Koalas in the wild before heading on through to Melbourne.


This is an awesome trip.  We’ll try to follow the itinerary but some places are seasonal and can change at any time, so we may need to operate on the fly.  If we can’t get to certain places they will be substituted with something just as awesome.
