Day 1

Home – Melbourne – Apollo Bay
After your early morning flight to Melbourne, be prepared to take in some of Australia’s most breathtaking coastal scenery. After lunch, travel via Geelong, Victoria’s second largest provincial city, and on to Victoria’s Surf Coast. The Great Ocean Road, carved into the rock, officially commences at Torquay and winds around the rugged southern coastline. Following an afternoon stop in Lorne, continue on to the seaside village of Apollo Bay where we will stay overnight.

Day 2

Great Ocean Road
Today we visit the Cape Otway Lightstation perched on the towering 80 metre sea cliffs overlooking where Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean collide. Swap coastal views for fern gullies and rainforests as the Great Ocean Road winds its way through the Otway Ranges. At the Twelve Apostles Information Centre we take in this magnificent area while enjoying a picnic lunch. There is no doubt this is a photographer’s paradise and for the very keen, there is the opportunity to take an optional scenic helicopter flight over this world renowned area. Continuing westward, we will pass Loch Ard Gorge, Port Campbell, The Arch, London Bridge (which did fall down), The Grotto and the Bay of Islands before arriving in Warrnambool. This evening, enjoy dinner and the spectacular ‘Shipwrecked’ sound and laser show at the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum.

We continue along the rugged coastline to Portland, Victoria’s first European settlement, for lunch. More amazing landscapes follow with the Petrified Forest, which resembles a lunar landscape of sandstone formations and the blowholes at Cape Bridgewater. Continue on to Mt Gambier and settle in before dinner.

Mt Gambier – Murray Bridge
Today begins with a visit to the spectacular Umpherston Sinkholes and Gardens, which was once a typical limestone cave.

Travelling through Millicent to Kingston SE for lunch, this town is home to the Big Lobster. Continue along the Princess Highway through Coorong to Murray Bridge for our overnight stay.
