Grampians & Great Ocean Road 2 Day Tour

The Grampians and Great Ocean Road tour is my absolute favourite. It combines the best of the stunning Grampians National Park with it’s rich Aboriginal heritage and stunning landscapes and wildlife encounters. Then combine this with one of the world’s best coastal drives, the Great Ocean Road and you’ve got an awesome weekend adventure!

Day 1

  • First stop is Brambruk Cultural Centre to watch 2 short videos on the dreamtime creation story of the Grampians and a presentation on Aboriginal culture and listen to a didgeridoo performance.
  • Next stop is the Grampians NP where we head to the Pinnacles! It’s an amazing short walk that involves hiking up the Grand Canyon and Silent street before accessing the summit that gives amazing views over Halls Gap and the southern Grampians.
  • Reid’s lookout is our next stop which provides impressive views over the interior of the National Park and we take a 10min walk to The Balconies lookout which provides an iconic photo opportunity for those brave enough to stand on the overhanging ledge.
  • MacKenzie Falls are some of the most impressive falls in the whole of Victoria and whilst this area was badly affected by the January 2014 bushfires, the falls are still stunning. We take a short walk to the base of the falls and depending on time follow the river down to Fish Falls to see how the bush is recovering from the fires.
  • On the way back to Halls Gap we stop at the stunning Boroka Lookout which provides a great view over Halls Gap and Lake Bellfield.
  • We depart Halls Gap at 4pm and arrive at our backpackers accommodation in Port Campbell at 7pm.

Day 2 

  • First stop is the stunning London Arch which provides some great photo opportunities and provides a further glimpse into the stunning coastal scenery.
  • Loch Ard Gorge is the second stop of the day and we enjoy 3 short walks including the main Loch Ard Gorge walk to the gorge itself. Next we follow the Wreck of the Loch Ard trail to learn about the tragic maritime history of the area. And lastly the Living on the Edge walk which reveals the stunning raw natural beauty of the cliff tops.
  • Next stop is the iconic 12 Apostles which is the Great Ocean Road’s most popular tourist attraction.
  • Mait’s rest is a beautiful short walk through an ancient rainforest landscape and gives us a chance to see the mighty myrtle beech trees.
  • Next we stop for a BBQ lunch in the sleepy coastal town of Apolly Bay and we have an opportunity to go for a swim and play beach cricket or soccer.
  • Kennett River is our next stop and it’s here we get to see native Koalas up close and get some great photos.
  • We stop at the Split Point Lighthouse to get one last stunning view of the coastline and learn about the maritime history of the coastline.
  • Last stop for the day is the iconic Bells Beach where we get to watch surfers tackle the famous surf break which features annually in the ASP World Tour.
  • Arrive in Melbourne at approx. 7pm
