Two States and such different things to see. The Great Ocean Road and all her beauty contrasted with the magnificent Grampians, both so different and both so stunning.

  • Hike/walk through the Grampians
  • Wildlife – Kangaroos and koalas
  • Visit National Parks

**DAY 1 (includes dinner): We journey through the beautiful Adelaide Hills and cross the mighty Murray River before travelling across the Victorian border and onto Horsham. Grampians National Park is a rugged ancient landscape and a place of great significance for the local Indigenous people. We make the most of our afternoon to explore the region and visit McKenzie Falls where we hike to view the stunning falls. We then enjoy a short nature walk to take in the full beauty of the Grampians and its truly spectacular landscapes. Enjoy dinner with your new friends before we overnight in the Grampians.

DAY 2 (includes breakfast): Up early this morning we make our way to the Australian National Heritage listed and world renowned Great Ocean Road. After a quick morning tea stop in the friendly town of Port Campbell (own expense), we explore Port Campbell National Park including a visit to Loch Ard Gorge and the magnificent Twelve Apostles rock formation. We pass Apollo Bay before taking a break to stretch our legs in the seaside town of Lorne. A short stop at Kennett River allows you to do some koala spotting before taking on that last part of the Great Ocean Road. Make the most of a great photo opportunity at some famed surf locations, before we make our final journey into cosmopolitan Melbourne.
