Spend three says discovering the Great Ocean Road and Grampians National Park with a friendly guide on this round trip from Melbourne. See the Twelve Apostles, walk through a rainforest gully, watch wild kangaroos and have breakfasts and dinners taken care of for you.
This three day tour explores the diverse landscape along the Great Ocean Road and the mountains of the Grampians National Park. Departing from Melbourne, visit Geelong, stop for morning tea, discover kangaroos in the wild, and stop in Lorne for a lunch break. Afterwards, you'll cruise along the spectacular, cliff-hugging road, stopping at many scenic spots including Kennett River to see koalas in their natural habitat. Stretch your legs on a short guided walk through a cool temperate rainforest gully to see the world’s tallest flowering plants, before checking into ‘Beacon Point Ocean View Villas’. Stopping here for dinner, your private self contained villa is set high on a hill overlooking the Southern Ocean.
After breakfast, the second day begins with a drive through the Otway ranges and onto the ‘Shipwreck Coast’ where you'll stop at the Twelve Apostles, iconic examples of Australian natural beauty. Here you can explore the boardwalks or brave a helicopter flight along the coastline, at your own expense. The small fishing village of Port Campbell is the lunch stop for the second day, afterwards you'll travel onwards to Tower Hill Game Reserve for the chance to see koalas, kangaroos and emus living wild within this extinct volcanic crater. Leaving the coast and heading north towards the Grampians National Park, arrive at your accommodation at the foot of Mt Sturgeon at the Royal Mail Hotel in Dunkeld.
After breakfast on the third day, take a scenic drive along the Wonderland and Mt William Ranges through to Halls Gap in the heart of the Grampians National Park. The day includes a few short walks at Baroka Lookout, Reid’s Lookout and McKenzie Falls as well as visits to ‘Brambuk’ - an Aboriginal cultural centre and a rock art site called ‘Bunjil’s Shelter’. The journey back to Melbourne goes through the gold mining township of Ballarat, once one of the richest towns in the world. The tour concludes back in Melbourne around 6pm.
