Itinerary

01

Day 1

Adelaide to Grampians
We escape the city and cruise through the scenic Adelaide Hills with a morning stop to grab a bite to eat and a tea or coffee. We stop for lunch before entering Halls Gap, gateway to the famed Grampians National Park. We take an easy walk (40 minutes) to reach the amazing MacKenzie Falls. 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 look-out, another stunning geological formation. Tonight, we stay in the heart of the Grampians. (LD)

Day 2

Grampians National Park to Great Ocean Road
We get up for breakfast before hiking (2 hours) the Grampians. The day continues with the visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre where you will get chance to learn about the local Aboriginal history. For lunch, we stop somewhere truly spectacular: the Tower Hill Reserve, home to wetlands, a dormant volcano, a lake and abundant wildlife: you might get the chance to spot koalas and emus!
The magnificent Great Ocean Road beckons! 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 Twelve Apostles. This spectacular collection of limestone stacks is best appreciated at sunset from the boardwalk. Tonight, we stay on the Great Ocean Road. (BLD)

Day 3

Great Ocean Road to Melbourne
We start our final day with an easy walk (1 hour) through the 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. We’ll find time to stop at Kennett River Koalas to watch the cuddly creatures in the wild. You can take a quick dip in the ocean or explore the artistic beachside villages of Apollo Bay and Lorne or watch surfers in action at famed beaches such as Bells Beach and Torquay (home of the surf brand outlets Rip Curl and Quicksilver) before heading through Geelong on the way to The Big City.
