Discover the best of Victoria coastlines on this overnight tour. Start by travelling inland directly to the Port Campbell National Park & be amazed by the iconic rock formations found along this part of the coast. Wonder at the stunning 12 Apostles & descend the Gibson Steps where you will be dwarfed by the towering cliffs and the enormous offshore stacks. Hear the tragic story of the shipwrecked Loch Ard at the spectacular Loch Ard Gorge, before continuing on through the lush Otway Ranges to explore the cool temperate rainforest & see some of Australia’s tallest eucalypts. Continue along the scenic coastal journey along Victoria’s Surf Coast to your overnight accommodation at Beacon Resort.

Wake up the following morning & board the ferry for an hour-long journey across Port Phillip Bay to the Mornington Peninsula. View the quirky Bathing Boxes then travel to the multi-award-winning Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park where we’ll get up close and personal with the friendly residents. Hand-feed kangaroos & wallabies, meet the cuddly koalas & enjoy a guided tour of the extensive exhibits housing a wide array of native fauna. Then cross over to Phillip Island to experience the world-renowned Penguin Parade as dusk falls on Summerland Beach. Watch these wondrous waddlers emerge from the surf and cross the beach before making their way to their homes in the dunes.
