Great Ocean Road & Grampians (3-Day)

A 3-day road trip combining the Great Ocean Road with the rugged beauty of the Grampians National Park

The rugged coastline of Great Ocean Road and great sandstone mountains of the Grampians National Park are two of the Australia’s most spectacular regions. The diverse scenery, native wildlife, and incredible food and wine experiences from the coast to the mountains provide the ultimate three-day Australian road trip.

Your journey begins tracing the full length of one of the world’s most spectacular coastal touring routes, the Great Ocean Road. Visit azure surf beaches, quaint seaside hamlets and spot lazy kangaroos and sleepy koalas in their natural habitat along the way. Enjoy a verdant rainforest interlude in the Great Otway National Park before arriving at the scenic highlight of the Great Ocean Road – the iconic Twelve Apostles. Stroll cliff-edge boardwalks for the perfect vantage point to see these magnificent limestone stacks rise majestically from the Southern Ocean. There is also the option to view from above with a short helicopter flight.

Spend the night in the charming maritime village of Port Campbell with a relaxed dinner at a classic Australian pub where you may meet some of the locals and sample the regions produce. The next morning consider rising early for an unforgettable sunrise viewing at the Twelve Apostles and explore less visited natural wonders of the Port Campbell National Park – all before the tourists arrive!

Continue inland to the Southern Grampians National Park for lunch in the quaint rural town of Dunkeld. The mountainous beauty of the region is showcased to its fullest extent with an optional hike to the summit of The Piccaninny. This easy, gradual climb through open forest (with stunning wildflower displays during spring) culminates with jaw-dropping views of Mount Abrupt. Tonight, you will fall asleep to the nocturnal sounds of the Australian bush.

A leisurely breakfast will be followed by a visit to the Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre where you’ll learn the indigenous history of this beautiful region. Your guide will take you on another breathtaking hike before you enjoy a well-earned lunch in Halls Gap.
