2 Day Great Ocean Road and Grampians Tour

The Great Ocean Road and Grampians Tour is full of Australian Wildlife and incredible untouched scenery, rich with spectacular photo opportunities and the chance to immerse yourself in the natural surrounds.

Day One (lunch)

The first stop on this Great Ocean Road and Grampians Tour is the world famous Surf Coast. Take some pictures at the historic Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch and go for a stroll along the beautiful beaches at Lorne and Anglesea. See how many koalas you can spot at Kennett River, home to beautiful birds such as king parrots, crimson rosellas and the kookaburra. Take a guided bushwalk through the very rare, ancient and cool temperate Otway Rainforest at Mait’s Rest. Experience the mighty 12 Apostles, a collection of breathtaking limestone stacks just off the shore. Hear the story of Victoria’s most tragic ship wreck at Loch Ard Gorge; along the Shipwreck Coast and visit the Razorback and the London Bridge. Spend the night in the heart of the Grampians – Halls Gap. Here you will have the chance to do some night-time Kangaroo spotting.

Day Two (breakfast)

The second day of this tour is spent in The Grampians National Park. This Grampians Tour is a paradise of kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, emus and echidnas and if you get up early and have a look around your hostel you will find them everywhere. After breakfast, we head out to either Hollow Mountain or Chautauqua Peak. Here you can explore the breathtaking beauty of massive sandstone outcrops and eucalypt covered slopes of the Northern Grampians. Take a walk up to the top of Hollow Mountain if you dare, but make sure you bring some sturdy shoes for the challenging uphill hike.

Spend some time in Halls Gap before we learn about the history and culture of the Jardwadjali and Djab Wurring Aboriginal Tribes at the Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Take a pleasant walk to the beautiful MacKenzie, Clematis or Silverband Falls. Just a short drive from Halls Gap is an ever popular picnic and walking spot at Lake Bellfield. Take a stroll along the lake’s shore and enjoy the fresh mountain air at either Reed’s Lookout or Lake Bellfield.

Visit a historic Aussie pub in a classic country town (drinks at your own expense) at our last stop on the way back to Melbourne. This 2 Day Great Ocean Road and Grampians Tour is one that will leave you in awe of our natural coastal and mountain regions and will long be remembered.
