Road trips don’t come more awesome than this. Shotgun a window seat and hit Victoria’s legendary Great Ocean Road for craggy cliffs, wild beaches, and waves like you’ve never seen before. This 3-day tour takes you through the region’s hottest highlights, from the rugged Grampians to Loch Ard Gorge and the legendary Twelve Apostles. You’ll take a rainforest walk in Great Otway, see koalas and kangas in Tower Hill Wildlife Reserve, hike through the bush to Mackenzie Falls, and learn all about the area’s rich Aboriginal culture. With pick up and drop off in Melbourne centre, and all accommodation included, it’s the perfect add-on to a stay in Victoria’s capital.

Then it’s the Shipwreck Coast where we’ll check out the iconic Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge. Take your day to the next level with an optional helicopter flight over the Apostles, ahead of a night in the seaside town of Warrnambool.

Day 2: Great Ocean Road to Grampians. We’ll have the opportunity to visit Tower Hill Conservation Wildlife Reserve today to see everything from koalas and kangaroos to echidnas, as well as learning about the Reserve’s rich Aboriginal history. Next up it’s the Grampians where we’ll take a hike to the Pinnacle Lookout. We’ll round off our day with a traditional Aussie barbecue in Halls Gap.

Day 3: Grampians to Melbourne. We’re up early today for an epic hike to the base of Mackenzie Falls, one of the largest in Victoria. After exploring this natural wonder, we’ll soak up some incredible views from Boroka Lookout and the Balconies/Reeds Lookout before piling into the minibus for our last journey back to Melbourne.
