Your morning starts with a pickup from Adelaide by air-conditioned bus. Hop aboard and cruise through the Adelaide Hills. Then, stop for lunch before entering Halls Gap, gateway to Grampians National Park. Take an easy 1-hour hike to The Balconies geological formation. Spend the night in the heart of the Grampians.
On the second day, take a moderately challenging 2-hour hike to The Pinnacle Lookout. Visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about Aboriginal history. Then, stop for lunch at the Tower Hill Reserve, home to wetlands, wildlife, and a dormant volcano.
Afterward, drive the Great Ocean Road along the Shipwreck Coast, making stops at the Bay of Martyrs, London Bridge, and Loch Ard Gorge rock formations. Opt for a helicopter ride above the limestone stacks. Spend the night in dormitory-style accommodations on the Great Ocean Road.
Start the third day with a walk through Great Otway National Park, home of some of the world’s oldest rainforests. Next, take a quick dip in the ocean or check out the galleries and beaches of Apollo Bay and Lorne.
Enjoy views of Bells Beach and Torquay, and then end your tour with a drop-off in Melbourne.
