3 Day Great Ocean Road and Grampians from Melbourne to Adelaide
On this fantastic experience we will visit local surf towns & seaside villages, Otway Ranges Temperate Rainforest, enjoy the breath taking sunset at the Twelve Apostles and great walks through the Grampians National Park.
We begin our ultimate road trip, cruising towards the Great Ocean Road and stop at famed beaches such as Bells Beach and Torquay (home of surf brands Rip Curl and Quicksilver)to watch the surfers in action. We then visit the artistic beachside villages of Apollo Bay and Lorne to explore. Next we’ll stop at Kennett River Koalas to see the wild cuddly creatures and the historical section of the Great Ocean Road that was carved through cliffs by returned World War I servicemen. Were take an easy walk through the Great Otway National Park, some of the world’s oldest temperate rainforest. There’s no better place to finish the day than the famed Twelve Apostles. This spectacular collection of limestone stacks is best appreciated at sunset. The next morning you will have the amazing opportunity to view it from the skies in a helicopter (at extra cost). Tonight we sleep in dormitory style accommodation in a backpacker’s hostel on the Great Ocean Road.
We continue along the Great Ocean Road, stopping at several extraordinary rock formations along the Shipwreck Coast, such as the Bay of Martyrs, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge. We stop for lunch at Tower Hill Reserve, the site of a dormant volcano, lake, wetlands and habitat to lots of wildlife: emus, koalas, kangaroos, possums, echidnas and many types of birds.
We go to the Grampians National Park in the afternoon. Just before sunset when the local wildlife, such as wallabies, kangaroos and kookaburras come out to play, we walk to The Balconies, which provides a magnificent viewpoint and photo opportunity of the surrounding ranges and valleys. Tonight we sleep in shared wood cabin accommodation, with the mountains towering around us.
We get up to hike a challenging 2 hours to The Pinnacle, which has inspiring views. We visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about local Aboriginal history. We marvel at the majestic Mt Arapiles, we then hit the highway and arrive into Adelaide city at approximately 7pm.
