3 DAY / 2 NIGHT GREAT OCEAN ROAD & GRAMPIANS (ADL - MEL OR MEL - ADL)
Day 1 From Melbourne we head through Geelong to hit the famous surf coast, Torquay, Bells Beach and Anglesea (home of Rip Curl and Quicksilver) with time to check out the local waves. Apollo Bay and Lorne are great places to swim, explore or just relax with a cup of coffee. Marvel at the historical section of the Great Ocean Road carved by returned WWI servicemen. It provides one of the most spectacular coastal roads you will ever see. Arriving at the Otway National Park, enjoy the walks through some of the oldest temperate rainforest in the world. A great place for a lunch stop. We finish the day with a sunset at the spectacular Twelve Apostles. Overnight is hostel accommodation on the Great Ocean Road.
Day 2 Heading along the Great Ocean Road, Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge and the Bay of Martyrs are some of the fantastic coastal scenery in this area. Enjoying a lunch stop, we arrive at the Grampians National Park, where we spend a great afternoon hiking before visiting the Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre. In the late afternoon, take a stroll with the kangaroos and other wildlife. We stay overnight in the heart of the Grampians National Park in hostel accommodation.
Day 3 After having breakfast we further explore the National Park, hiking the northern part which is rich in flora, Aboriginal and European history. We marvel at Mt. Arapiles and eat lunch. Heading for Adelaide travelling through the hills and arriving at approximately 7.00pm.
SINGLE DAY BAROSSA VALLEY
The Barossa Valley is Australia’s most famous wine region. The Groovy day begins by travelling through the Adelaide Hills, stopping at the world’s largest Rocking Horse and the amazing Whispering Wall and then on to our first wine tasting experience.
We spend approximately 45 minutes in the Jacob’s Creek Visitor’s Centre, going through the history of the Jacob’s Creek brand, followed by a structured wine tasting and an educational presentation.
Our next winery is Kies, a small family owned winery with ironstone cottage cellar door. Their wines are exclusively sold from the cellar door and we taste a selection of their range today, while the tour guide prepares our lunch.
Lunch is a barbeque extravaganza including the Aussie speciality of marinated kangaroo, as well as chicken, steak, sausages and a range of fresh salads.
We head to Richmond Grove, a picturesque winery set on the banks of the North Para River, where we tour their cellars and enjoy their wine.
We fit in a trip to Mengler’s Hill lookout to admire the views across the valley. We visit our fourth and final winery for today, the historic Seppeltsfield, before returning to Adelaide by about 5pm.
KANGAROO ISLAND 2 days/1 night
Our tours start when we pick you up from Adelaide and drive towards Kangaroo Island via the Fleurieu Peninsula, experiencing some fantastic coastal views. We arrive at Cape Jervis and jump on the ferry as we cross the Backstairs Passage to Penneshaw on the island.
From there we start our Kangaroo Island experience with the panoramic views atop Prospect Hill.
Our days of action, wildlife and wilderness include up close encounters with sea lions on a beach walk at Seal Bay, sand-boarding at the Little Sahara, kayaking down Harriet River, snorkelling and swimming at beautiful North Coast beaches and optional quad biking around the bush at sunset.
Overnight is spent at our private accommodation at Hanson Bay, surrounded by koalas, kangaroos, possums and the occasional echidna. After dinner, whether an Aussie BBQ feast or some other “tour specialty”, we spend the night around the campfire, story telling, wildlife spotting and playing the didgeridoo. You can choose to sleep inside in bunk beds or under the stars in swags, with all bedding provided.
We check out the famous Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, where we view a colony of New Zealand Fur Seals. We spend time in the Flinders Chase National Park, the largest on the island, where we choose a selection of short hikes. Flinders Chase is home to vast tracts of untamed wilderness, the elusive platypus and heaps of other wildlife, which we’ll do our best to see.
At the end of the day we make our way back to Penneshaw for the return crossing to Cape Jervis and the drive back into Adelaide, usually arriving at about 8.30pm.
What to bring: Hat, sunscreen, walking shoes, insect repellent, water bottle, and bathers (swimming gear. Otherwise all the usual stuff, and most important a sense of adventure!
