Itinerary

01

Day 1

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. Once in the national park we visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about local Aboriginal history, before taking a walk to MacKenzie Falls. 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. (LD)

Day 2

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. (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.
