ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrive Melbourne
Welcome to the city of gothic laneways, distinctive flavors, historic architecture & many famous sporting venues. After you have checked into your central Melbourne accommodation you are free to explore the city until twilight where you will board the Melbourne Star and enjoy stunning skyline views as you watch the sun set and ushers in the vibrant nightlife.

Day 2: Melbourne – Port Campbell
Depart Melbourne you start the journey along the Great Ocean Road at Torquay (Surf Coast). This stretch of coast presents the first of countless photo opportunities, as you encounter stunning coastal views and lookouts and visit such places as the famous Bells Beach. Turn your gaze inland and see incredible native Australian wildlife including the Eastern Grey Kangaroos as they graze in the wild.

As the journey continues you will see impressive and scenic cliff-hugging section of the Great Ocean Road. Stopping at sites such as the ‘Memorial Arch’ and hear the intriguing story of this incredible road, before a visit in Lorne, the largest of the seaside townships, before then heading to the quaint Wye River Seaside Town and the Wye River Cafe which overlooks the ocean, and the perfect place for lunch. From the Wye River Seaside Town, you will continue along this spectacular road, visiting many scenic spots including The Kennett River where you can see koalas and many colourful native birds in the wild. Once at Apollo Bay you will be offered a guided walk through a cool temperate rainforest gully to see the world’s tallest flowering plants, prehistoric trees and ferns and many other unique features.

Next stop on the itinerary is undoubtedly one of the most iconic vistas within Australia and truly representative of Australia’s natural beauty, the 12 Apostles. Once you arrive the stacks are bathed in the afternoon sun making them perfect for photos. After hearing of the creation of the stacks and holding some of the limestone rock, explore the boardwalks or brave a helicopter flight along the coastline (at own expense). Visit ‘Loch Ard Gorge’, the site of the most famous 19th century Australian shipwreck.

Accommodation for the first night is the small fishing village of Port Campbell, nestled in a beautiful natural port and has some wonderful cafés and restaurants for dinner (at own expense) and views.

Day 3:  Port Campbell – Port Fairy
This morning you will pop back out to the 12 Apostles and take in the view during the morning sunlight and/or take a helicopter flight (at own expense) over this amazing coastline. Spend time visiting the unique formations of Loch Ard Gorge and immerse yourselves in the harrowing story of the wreck of the Lock Ard.

As you explore one of Victoria’s largest regional towns of Warrnambool before having lunch in the township of Koroit at a quaint Aussie eatery. Eexplore Tower Hill Wildlife Park where you take a interactive tour learning about the local Aboriginal history, geology, flora and fauna. The destination tonight is the quaint fishing village of Port Fairy; there will be time to enjoy a stroll around this beautiful township before enjoying dinner (at your expense) at the many local restaurants, café’s or pubs. 

Day 4:  Port Fairy - Naracoorte
Today you are bound for South Australia.  In Portland there’s time for panoramic coastal views from the Cape Nelson Lighthouse, before a scenic drive through dense pine plantations to our lunch venue in the pretty riverside village of Nelson. After lunch you will cross the state border and continue on to Mount Gambier which is home to the famous Blue Lake.  The Blue Lake occupies a crater of the ancient volcano which gives this city its name and early each summer, in a remarkable quirk of nature, the colour of the water in the lake changes from its winter hues to an intense cobalt blue.  A photo stop at the Blue Lake is a must and so is a visit to the Umpherston Sinkhole, a collapsed limestone cave that has been transformed into a magical sunken garden. Take a walk along its terraced flower beds and behind the hanging vines deep down to the floor of this extraordinary natural wonder.

The next stop is Penola, which played a central part in the life of Mother Mary MacKillop (St Mary of the Cross) Australia’s only saint. Pass the schoolhouse where she taught the poorest children of the district and take a walk along Petticoat Lane, a charmingly preserved group of mid eighteenth century cottages and gardens. The destination tonight is The William Macintosh Motor Lodge in Naracoorte.  For dinner look no further than the award-winning Highlander Restaurant. Located on the William Macintosh grounds. The Highlander restaurant also has a fully licensed bar where you can sit and have a quiet glass of wine before dinner. 

DAY 5:  Penola – Adelaide
Another exciting day heading through the Coonawarra vineyards where Australia’s most illustrious Cabernet Sauvignon vines thrive on the famed rich red “terra rossa” soils. A guided visit to the world heritage listed Naracoorte Caves takes us to one of the world’s most important fossil sites. The tour of the Victoria Fossil Cave features a dazzling array of stalactites and stalagmites as well as the bones and skeletons of giant, long extinct animals.

After a rest break and morning tea at the iconic Keith bakery, you begin a picturesque drive through some of South Australia’s farming and grazing heartland.  After crossing the mighty Murrary River you will enjoy lunch at Bremerton Winery in the acclaimed Langhorne Creek wine region.  Here you are welcome to sample their wines in the restored iron stone barn dating from 1866.

Continuing on through the rolling hills and valleys to the historic German village of Hahndorf. Founded by German settlers fleeing religious persecution in the late 1830s, Hahndorf is Australia’s oldest German settlement and one of South Australia’s most popular destinations.  You can enjoy a stroll along its bustling main street of historic buildings, gift shops, arts and crafts galleries and food outlets. The final stop is both spectacular and surprising. From Mt Lofty Summit the whole of South Australia’s capital city of Adelaide is spread out on the plains below. We will drop you at your accommodation in this wonderful city around 6.00pm on Thursday afternoon.

Day 6: Taste the Barossa
Starting early you will way out of Adelaide through the Adelaide Hills with our first stop the famous Whispering Wall where you will be fascinated by its famous acoustic qualities. Our first winery is the beautiful and historic Château Yaldara, this is one of the most photographed buildings in South Australia and no trip to the Barossa Valley is complete without getting a photo in front of this iconic building.

After making your way through to the beautiful and historic township of Tanunda there will be time to wander up the main street and visit some local shops and points of interest, a perfect place to find a souvenir or a coffee. Lunch is a regional highlight. While enjoying some of the Barossa’s most internationally acclaimed wines at the beautiful Peter Lehmann winery a platter of the best meats, cheeses, olives, assorted vegetables and freshly baked bread the Barossa Valley has to offer is brought to your table.

After lunch you will take a leisurely stroll to one of the most historic and beautiful wineries in the Barossa, Langmeil one of the most visually stunning wineries in the region and home to the oldest known Shiraz vineyard in the world. Stroll through the vineyard and into the ancient cellar to sample your choice of the finest drops the state has to offer. Stopping to take in in the breath-taking panoramic views of the Barossa from Mengler’s Hill Lookout. The final wine-tasting experience will be at Lindsay Wines, fusing art, wine and music into a joyous experience that simply can’t be missed. Take in the winery’s intreaging history accompanied by music from the staff’s own collection of vintage vinyl records. Finishing the day with a trip through the beautiful Seppeltsfield region – and the perfect photo opportunity – before heading back to Adelaide.

Day 7: Depart Adelaide
After a fantastic Journey from Melbourne along the Great Ocean Road, Limestone Coast and up to the Barossa it’s time to head off to Airport back home.
