ITINERARY:

Day 1 - Melbourne to the Grampians National Park
Your first stop en-route to the Grampians is the township of Beaufort where we stop for morning tea. As you drive through the Grampians your experienced guide will point out the unique wildlife, including kangaroos, emus and a vast array of birdlife. Travel straight into the heart of the Grampians National Park to the delightful town of Halls Gap, and then it's off to stretch those legs with a walk through the breath- taking Wonderland Ranges. We then stop for a break at Halls Gap for lunch (own expense). After lunch we then hike to the remarkable Jaws of Death and Balconies Lookout experiencing majestic views and scenery. Last stop for the day is the inspiring Mackenzie Falls before arriving at our overnight Grampians accommodation.(D)

Day 2 - Grampians National Park via Great Ocean Road to Port Campbell
This morning we have a visit to the Brambuk Aboriginal Culture Centre and learn more of the ancient Dreamtime stories. Your creative skills will be assessed as we create personalised souvenirs to take home. Passing through Halls Gap, we head south to the Great Ocean Road where we'll take time to explore several natural landscapes including The Arch, London Bridge and the Bay of Martyrs, these are sure to be a great addition to the photo albums. We'll finish up at the friendly town of Port Campbell, nestled amongst the cliffs and pines. (BD)

Day 3 - Port Campbell to Melbourne
This morning brings us to the magnificent Twelve Apostles rock formation, as well as the beautiful Loch Ard Gorge. A short break from the coast, we venture to the top of the forest at the Otway Tree Top Walk – a wonderful way to get a feel for Victoria's natural beauty whilst perched amongst the birds. Back down to the seaside for lunch as we pass through the coastal towns of Apollo Bay and Lorne. The tail end of the majestic Great Ocean Road will bring us towards famed surf location Bells Beach, then direct into Melbourne navigating the city streets with the famous trams and to our drop off locations.
