  • Itinerary

    Day 1 - Arrive Melbourne (3 Nights)

    Kickstart your scenic coastal journey in Melbourne. Transfer to your hotel (flights anytime), then spend the rest of the day immersing yourself in what makes this city Australia's 'Capital of Cool'.

     

    Day 2 - Great Ocean Road - Twelve Apostles

    We leave Melbourne's towering skyline and grand boulevards bound for the Great Ocean Road. Your journey will take you to the pretty coastal towns of Lorne and Anglesea, and through the lush tree-fern gullies and towering mountain-ash rainforests of Otway National Park. The imposing Twelve Apostles loom in the distance, rising high above the crashing waves below. Survey the grandeur of this iconic site from your cliff-top vantage point and stroll along the boardwalk, keeping your camera at hand to capture the natural splendour of this setting. See Loch Ard Gorge and discover the romantic and tragic story of love and lives lost aboard the Loch Ard in 1878. Explore Port Campbell National Park and delve into the tragic history of over 50 ships wrecked along this unforgiving coastline. Continue beyond Port Campbell to the remnants of London Bridge.

     

    Day 3 - City Sights - Phillip Island

    Savour the aromas of coffee that seem to linger around every corner in cosmopolitan Melbourne. Your sightseeing tour will take you past Parliament House, Queen Victoria Market and the Royal Botanic Gardens. Travel to Maru Koala & Animal Park and connect with the koalas, kangaroos and Tasmanian Devils that find sanctuary here. View spectacular coastal scenery at the Nobbies, two rocky outcrops abundant in marine life, as you journey to Phillip Island. Learn about the Little Penguins and life on the island during a visit to the educational Visitor Information Centre. Witness a miracle of nature as the Little Penguins battle the surf and make their way to their dune burrows to greet their young families, then gain a deeper understanding of the environmental and conservation methods that ensure the wildlife and vulnerable geology of Phillip Island remain protected.

     

    Day 4 - Depart Melbourne

    Your holiday concludes after breakfast. Transfer to Melbourne Airport for your onward flight (flights anytime).
