3 DAY MELBOURNE - ADELAIDE

Our guests on this micro group tour of just 8 people are picked up from Melbourne cityhotels and depart Melbourne via the West Gate Bridge. We travel through the vast volcanic plains on route to Geelong where you have time to stroll along the beautifully transformed waterfront. Our first stop along the coast is at a famous surfing beach before visiting a new chocolatefactory. Our focus then turns to Australian native wildlife as we observe Eastern Grey Kangaroos in the wild. This is one of many opportunities to see and hear about our unique and unusual animals in their native habitat. Our journey then begins travelling the very scenic, cliff-hugging section of the Great Ocean Road. While winding our way along we stop to view the ‘Arch’ and tell you of the intriguing story of this incredible memorial road.
Lorne is the largest of the seaside resorts and is a perfect place for a lunch break. You may even find time to have a swim or do some shopping.
After lunch we cruise along the spectacular road, stopping at many scenic spots including Kennett River where we can see koalas and many colourful native birds in the wild.Travelling on to Apollo Bay we take a walk at the harbour to get great views of the coastline and possibly the local fisherman offloading their catch. We then give you some time to explore Apollo Bay before checking into your ocean view accommodation. Your private self-contained villa is set high on a hill overlooking the Southern Ocean at Chris’ Restaurant and Villas. This amazing setting is a great place to relax and unwind for a couple of hours before dinner at the highly renowned restaurant. This Greek and French inspired restaurant is an icon of the region, and you get to enjoy a two-course dinner from the a la carte menu. (Accommodation based on availability)


Our second day starts with a continental breakfast back in the restaurant enjoying the magnificent views once again. Our journey then starts with us travelling through the Otway ranges where we take you on a 1km guided walk through a cool temperate rainforest gully to see the world’s tallest flowering plants, prehistoric trees and ferns and unique features such as ‘Yabbie Chimneys’.
Our first stop along the Shipwreck coast is at Castle Cove overlooking the Aire river valley. Your guide will introduce you to the strong Aboriginal heritage of the region with many tribes living prosperously around the coastline for thousands of years. In the same area millions of years ago when Australia was part of the great southern land, Gondwana, dinosaurs were roaming the land. A unique find along the coast in 1987 uncovered important clues into the world’s prehistoric past.

The 12 Apostles are Icons of Australia’s natural beauty. We arrive as the stacks are lit with the morning sun making them perfect for photos and crowd free. This is a bonus for being there early as the stacks are silhouettes in the afternoon and overcrowded. After hearing of the creation of the stacks and holding some of the limestone rock you can explore the boardwalks or brave a helicopter flight along the coastline (own expense).

We then visit ‘Loch Ard Gorge’, the site of the most famous 19th century Australian shipwreck. We retell the entire story from the calm voyage, the tragic wreck, the courageous survivors, and their fate. While hearing the tale you will be able to see and hold some
original artefacts, photos and documents from the ‘Loch Ard’ contained in our treasure chests.

Port Campbell is our lunch stop for today. The small fishing village of just 350 is set in a beautiful natural port and has some wonderful cafes and restaurants for food and views.

After lunch we travel to a lesser known but highly impressive area of the Great Ocean Road west of Port Campbell. This section takes in London Bridge, Bay of Islands, Bay of Martyrs, and Boat Bay. Our journey then continues through Warrnambool and onto Tower Hill Game
Reserve where we may have the chance to see Koalas, Kangaroos and Emus. Our journey then continues through picturesque Port Fairy towards Mount Gambier, home of the ‘Blue’ crater lake and numerous ‘sinkholes’.







We check into our overnight accommodation at ‘The Barn’, just a short distance from Mount Gambier. This farmland resort has large, modern rooms and a wonderful dining room showcasing regional produce and delicious steak variations. Dinner and breakfast are both included at the hotel.

Our third day starts with a drive through the Coonawarra wine region and a visit to the Naracoorte Caves National Park for a cave tour with a local guide. These limestone caves have an abundance of stalagmites and stalactites and are a World Heritage listed area due to the fossils of the ‘Mega Fauna’ found buried in the Caves. We then continue our journey through another prominent South Australian wine region of Padthaway as we head north through to Keith. We stop here for lunch before joining the highway, travelling through grain and stock land towards Adelaide. This is a vast drought affected area of Australia and is an incredible contrast to the lush forests and coastal pastures we have been travelling in. On our approach to the city we visit the very popular tourist village of Hahndorf and Mount Lofty summit for impressive, birds-eye views of Adelaide and surrounds. We arrive in the city at around 6pm.
