Tour Overview:

The Great Ocean Road is THE roadie of all roadies. We love this one because of its world famous epic views all the way along the coast just west of Melbourne.. Whilst on the Great Ocean Road not only will you enjoy the banter of a roadtrip whilst with the legends from Groovy Grape but you’ll also see the unreal 12 Apostles {spoiler… there’s now only 8}, absolute beaut beaches and rock formations all the way along the Shipwreck Coast.

This tour will take you to the Great Ocean Road and to the BEAUT Grampians National Park which offers hundreds of unreal views! A trip here means you’ll be able to explore the Grampians by foot and see unreal waterfalls, climb up to incredible look out points and check out the local wildlife that live there, we can’t get enough of the amazing landscapes that the Grampians has to offer and is a must visit for a nature lover/hiker/explorer!

One thing is for sure that these legends BRING THE BANTER, and we love em for it. You’ll start your group tour in Adelaide where you’ll escape the city hustle and into nature, you’ll head to Halls Gap which is THE gateway to the famed Grampians National Park. Hope you’re ready for some beaut scenes as this is exactly what you are going to get with this spot! An easy hour walk through rocky outcrops and forests will lead you to The Balconies which is another stunning geological formation! Whilst in the grampians you’ll be seeing some epic spots we’re talking – the Pinnacle which offers the BEST viewpoint, the Brambuk Cultural centre and the tower hill reserve which is a dormant volcano.

Time to hit up the beauty that is the Great Ocean Road, you’ll be visiting some unreal rock formations {don’t geek out on us you’ll get it when you visit!} along the shipwreck coast with the most renowned being the Twelve Apostles which you’ll see at Sunset {RPT Recommends – if ya feeling flashy you have the opportunity to see it by helicopter}. En route back to Melbourne you’ll visit Great Otway National Park, explore the beachy villages of Apollo Bay and Lorne, visit Kennett River Koalas to watch the cuddly creatures in the wild, before heading through Geelong on the way to city!

Included in this trip is all of your food {YEwwwww} and 2 nights of accommodation whilst you are on the tour. We love this adventure as it gets you from Adelaide to Melbourne, it’s the roadtrips of all roadtrips and the guys at Groovy Grape are awesome.

Itinerary:

Day 1 : Adelaide – Halls Gap

We escape the city and cruise through the scenic Adelaide Hills with a morning stop to grab a bite to eat and a tea or coffee. We stop for lunch before entering Halls Gap, gateway to the famed Grampians National Park. At around dusk, when wildlife, such as wallabies, kangaroos, cockatoos and kookaburras, come out to play, we walk (an easy 1 hour) through rocky outcrops and forests to The Balconies, another stunning geological formation. Tonight, we sleep in dormitory style accommodation in the heart of the Grampians.

Day 2 : Halls Gap – Princetown

We wake up and hike 2 hours to The Pinnacle, probably the finest viewpoint in the Grampians. We visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about the local Aboriginal history, before departing this wondrous place. For lunch, we stop somewhere truly spectacular: The Tower Hill Reserve, home to wetlands, a lake, abundant wildlife and a dormant volcano. The magnificent Great Ocean Road beckons! We stop at several extraordinary rock formations along the Shipwreck Coast, such as the Bay of Martyrs, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge. For many, the most amazing sight is the famed Twelve Apostles. This spectacular collection of limestone stacks is best appreciated at sunset from the boardwalk. The next morning you also have the opportunity to view them aboard a helicopter (extra cost). Tonight, we stay in dormitory style accommodation on the Great Ocean Road.

Day 3 : Princetown – Melbourne

We start our final day with an easy walk (1 hour) through the Great Otway National Park, which boasts some of the world’s oldest temperate rainforest. Sections of the Great Ocean Road were carved through cliffs by servicemen returning after World War I, and offer some of the most impressive coastal roads you’ll ever see. You can take a quick dip in the ocean or explore the artistic beachside villages of Apollo Bay and Lorne. You can watch surfers in action at famed beaches such as Bells Beach and Torquay (home of the surf brand outlets Rip Curl and Quicksilver). We’ll find time to stop at Kennett River Koalas to watch the cuddly creatures in the wild, before heading through Geelong on the way to The Big City.
