Are there two words that go better together than “road” and “trip”? We don’t think so. On this short and sweet four-day tour from Adelaide to Melbourne, we’ll drive the Great Ocean Road and take in the highlights. Grampians National Park, the Arch, the 12 Apostles — we’ll check ‘em out and get expert guidance from our CEOs (Chief Experience Officers) along the way. Our small group sizes make it easy to bond with your fellow travellers, so you’ll come away with both new memories and new friends.

Itinerary

  • Arrive at any time. Tonight gear up for your first night out in Adelaide with your CEO and group. Get ready for nothing but friendly vibes and epic times as you enjoy some local ales with your new travel tribe by your side.
  • Skip sleeping in this morning and travel inland to Grampians National Park. Trek through lush forest, view the craggy sandstone Wonderland range in the distance, and examine impressive indigenous rock art. Home to some pretty amazing scenic lookouts this national park will grant you with many photo opportunities so make sure those cameras are charged before heading into the thick of it all. Walk to the stunning Balconies for expansive views of the Victoria Valley below, then stop at one of the largest waterfalls in Victoria; Mackenzie Falls and watch the water cascading down cliff faces as it creates rainbows in the air. Close your eyes, breathe in the fresh air, and find peace in the moment.
    Meals: BREAKFAST
  • Open your eyes to the smells and sounds of the lush forest of Grampians NP and lace up those hiking boots for an early morning walk within the park. Are you feeling historical? Choose to visit an Indigenous Cultural Centre where you will get to throw a boomerang, sample local delicacies like emu or crocodile, and walk through gardens planted with native herbs and plants to help you learn about the history of Australia’s Indigenous people. Then drive along the iconic Great Ocean Road, viewing sites like the collapsed London Arch on the way to Port Campbell.
    Meals: BREAKFAST
  • No need to say goodbye to the Great Ocean Road just yet! Continue travelling along the road with the group making visits to Loch Ard Gorge and the 12 Apostles along the way. It’s no wonder that the 12 Apostles are the star of the show on the Great Ocean Road. They are the kind of landmark that somehow finds a way to be more stunning in person than in photos. Gaze in wonder at smooth pearlescent bays surrounded by clear, blue water, flanked by yellow-washed cliff faces, and feel the wind whipping through your hair. Then travel past world-famous surf beaches before walking through the rainforest one last time in Great Otway National Park. After soaking up all the nature you can it’s back to the hip city of Melbourne in the evening. Tour ends on arrival to Melbourne.
