Overview

Witness the majestic beauty of the Great Ocean Road and Grampians National Park, famed for its natural wonders. History buffs will enjoy hearing stories of the Shipwreck Coast and discovering the traditions and culture of the indigenous people, while nature lovers will revel in the great outdoors, with opportunities to see native plants and wildlife up-close in their local habitats.

Day 1: Melbourne to Port Campbell (L)
Depart from Melbourne and travel along the Great Ocean Road - Australia's greatest coastal drive. Visit the famed Torquay surf city, a beach town known for its surf culture. Be immersed in Aboriginal history with a stop at Narana Aboriginal Cultural Centre before exploring the famous Split-Point Lighthouse, first illuminated in 1891.  Drive through the lovely coastal towns of Lorne and Apollo Bay and continue along the Great Ocean Road and see the Shipwreck Coast, where more than 50 ships met their peril against the rugged coastline in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The most famous was the wreck of Loch Ard, when only two out of 54 people survived and for which the Loch Ard Gorge is named. See the majestic 12 Apostles, a group of limestone rocks formed by the natural elements that jut straight up out of the water.
