DescriptionDay 1 - (L) Say farewell to Melbourne as you drive over the Westgate Bridge bound for Adelaide. Start at the beginning of The Great Ocean Road and twist along this iconic road with awe inspiring views the entire day. Stop for morning tea briefly before pulling over for a photo under Memorial Arch (The Great Ocean Road Sign). Continue through several seaside towns along the way, including Kennett River where your guide will help you find koalas in the wild and native birds amongst the eucalyptus trees, before your lunch stop in Apollo Bay. Relax on the main beach, walk the main street or taste some local ice-cream treats! After the lunch stop, the Great Ocean Road winds into the ancient Otway rainforest as you say goodbye to the coastline for a while. Stretch your legs in the fresh air as you're guided through the crisp wonderland of Maits Rest. Continuing the journey you'll join the ocean again at the Shipwreck Coast. Hear the stories of shipwrecks and marvel at the limestone cliffs and structures that span the coastline. View the 12 Apostles in all their glory as they defy hundreds of years of erosion. Walk down onto the sands of the isolated and remote Loch Ard Gorge. Hear the story of how London Bridge fell down as you view the archway that remains, before making your way into the Grampians National Park for your bed for the night. Day 2 - (B) Wake up in the heart of the Grampians; Halls Gap. Early morning is the best time as kangaroos bounce, kookaburras laugh, and magpies and currawongs call to the rising sun. After breakfast, drive into the multiple mountain ranges of the Grampians National Park. Captivating panoramic vistas greet you at every break in the trees on your way to Borkoa Lookout. Look down over Halls Gap and Victoria's western plains. Take a walk to the Balconies, a geological icon of the Grampians with views over the Victoria Valley. Step down a series of 250+ stairs to the bottom of the remote Mackenzie Falls. Relax as the waters of the Wartook River cascade over the edge, before making the journey to Brambuk Cultural Center to learn about Jarwadjali and Djab Wurrung tribes that have called the Grampians (Gariwerd) home for thousands of years. Back to Halls Gap for lunch before beginning the drive through the broadacre farmland of Western Victoria. Crossing the border into South Australia, the drive continues all the way through to Adelaide for an arrival to the CBD at approx. 7.00 pm.
