Tour Description

Day one

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. At around dusk, when wildlife, such as wallabies, kangaroos, cockatoos and kookaburras, come out to play, we walk (an easy 1 hour) through rocky outcrops and forests to The Balconies, another stunning geological formation. Tonight, we sleep in dormitory style accommodation in the heart of the Grampians.

Day two

We wake up and hike 2 hours to The Pinnacle, probably the finest viewpoint in the Grampians. We visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about the local Aboriginal history, before departing this wondrous place. For lunch, we stop somewhere truly spectacular: The Tower Hill Reserve, home to wetlands, a lake, abundant wildlife and a dormant volcano. 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. You can even view these sights aboard a helicopter flight (extra cost). This spectacular collection of limestone stacks is best appreciated at sunset from the boardwalk. Tonight, we stay in dormitory style accommodation on the Great Ocean Road.

Day three

We start our final day with an easy walk through the Great 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. You can take a quick dip in the ocean or explore the artistic beachside villages of Apollo Bay and Lorne. You can watch surfers in action at famed beaches such as Bells Beach and Torquay (home of the surf brand outlets Rip Curl and Quicksilver) before making our way to The Big City.
Everyone around the world says Australia has some of the most beautiful natural scenery on the planet, and this tour proves it. Come and see for yourself!
