Tour Description

With an early departure (7:15 to 7:45 am) from a number of inner city locations throughout Melbourne, you’ll set off in a comfortable minibus for an amazing adventure.

DAY 1 (Lunch and dinner included)
Leaving Melbourne, you’ll begin your journey travelling along the famous Great Ocean Road. On this day, you’ll wind along this glorious coastal road, stopping at a number of majestic landmarks and fascinating sites along the way. The captivating Twelve Apostles are your first stop, and here, you’ll be able to capture some amazing photos of this stunning natural landmark. Your'll enjoy a complimentary lunch along the way while taking in the views of the pristine surf beaches. You’ll spot koalas in the wild and enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery you’ve ever seen along Victoria’s coastline. You’ll also visit a National Park for a walk through some of the area’s lush, verdant forests. At the end of the day, you’ll be treated to a mouth-watering dinner, before bunking down for the night in lovely dormitory-style accommodation.

DAY 2 (Breakfast included)
After you awaken in a quaint seaside town on day two, you’ll enjoy a filling breakfast before continuing your journey and seeing even more stunning scenery. You’ll enjoy a ferry ride across to Phillip Island, where you’ll spend some time exploring this famous island, known for its penguins and its motor racing. At Phillip Island, you’ll first visit a wildlife park, where you’ll get up close to some inquisitive Aussie animal species, some of which you’ll be able to feed and pat.

Visiting the Penguin Parade Visitors Centre will enable you to learn about the Little Penguins and their history on the Island. Then, as the sun begins to set, you’ll get to view the adorable Little Penguins themselves, as they waddle up from the surf to settle down for the night in their sand dune burrows. You’ll then head back to Melbourne and be dropped off at your original pick up point at about 10 pm (winter) or Midnight (summer).
