Daily Departures Available!

Day 1 Arrive Melbourne (3 Nights)
On arrival at Melbourne Airport you will be transferred to your hotel (flights anytime). The afternoon is free for you to do as you choose.

Day 2 Great Ocean Road - Twelve Apostles
Travel inland through Victoria's rich farming land and take a break in the lively regional town of Colac, on the doorstep of the Great Otway National Park. When you reach the Great Ocean Road you'll be greeted by the amazing sight of the Twelve Apostles, limestone stacks rising dramatically from the Southern Ocean. Visit the information centre and take a stroll along the boardwalk to enjoy the scenery from various vantage points. In Port Campbell National Park you'll hear stories of the tragic loss of over 50 ships along the rugged coastline and that of love and lives lost aboard the Loch Ard. After a lunch break, travel through the heart of the Otway Ranges, past fern-filled gullies, river inlets, towering limestone cliffs, sweeping white beaches and stunning forest scenery. View the popular coastal townships of Apollo Bay and Lorne before returning to Melbourne and the sight of its spectacular night lights. (Buffet Breakfast)

Day 3 City Sights - Penguin Parade
Experience the sights of cosmopolitan Melbourne. See Parliament House and the Shrine of Remembrance, pass Queen Victoria Market and visit the Royal Botanic Gardens. Travel to the Maru Koala & Animal Park to see koalas, kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils and other native animals. View the Nobbies rock formations, overlooking one of the most treacherous oceans in the world, Bass Strait. So you think the koalas are cute, just wait until you see the Little Penguins on Phillip Island. Head down to Summerland Beach and just as the sun sets, the wild Little Penguins emerge from the sea after a hard day's fishing and waddle across the sand to their dune burrows. (Buffet Breakfast)

Day 4 Depart Melbourne
You will be transferred to Melbourne Airport to connect with your onward flight (flights anytime). (Buffet Breakfast)
All This Included
Enjoy a birds-eye view with a difference after winding your way along Victoria's famed Great Ocean Road. Watch the wild, waddling penguins of Phillip Island emerging from a hard day's fishing as they parade up the beach and to their dune burrows as the light begins to fade over the horizon.
