Day 1

Melbourne to Great Ocean Road
We begin the ultimate road trip, cruising towards the Great Ocean Road and stop to watch surfers in action at famed beaches such as Bells Beach and Torquay (home of surf brands Rip Curl and Quicksilver). We also visit artistic beachside villages of Apollo Bay and Lorne. We’ll stop at Kennett River Koalas to see the cuddly creatures in the wild and the historical section of the Great Ocean Road that was carved through cliffs by returned World War I servicemen. We take a 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. This spectacular collection of limestone stacks is best appreciated at sunset from the boardwalk. Tonight we stay along the Great Ocean Road. (LD)


Day 2

Great Ocean Road to Grampians National Park
We continue along the Great Ocean Road, stopping at several extraordinary rock formations along the Shipwreck Coast, such as the Bay of Martyrs, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge. We enjoy lunch at Tower Hill Reserve, the site of a dormant volcano, lake, wetlands and habitat to lots of wildlife: emus, koalas, kangaroos, possums, echidnas and many types of birds.
We enter the Grampians National Park in the afternoon, where we take a walk (40 minutes) to MacKenzie Falls. Just before sunset when the local wildlife, such as wallabies, kangaroos and kookaburras come out to play, we walk (an easy hour) to The Balconies, which provides a magnificent viewpoint and photo opportunity of the surrounding ranges and valleys.

Day 3

Grampians to Adelaide
We get up early to do challenging 2 hour hike in the Grampians, but it’s worth the effort for such awe-inspiring views. We visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about local Aboriginal history before hitting the highway and arriving into Adelaide city at approximately 7pm. (BL)
