Tour description provided by Viator

Discover the Great Ocean Road and the Grampians National Park with this all inclusive 3 day multi day tour from Melbourne to Adelaide. With a maximum of 21 passengers, enjoy a fun, interactive and informative tour going as you travel with your driver guide. Walk through the Otway National Park, stop at several extraordinary rock formations: The bay of Martyrs, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge, admire the sun set on the 12 Apostles and appreciate a night in the heart of the Grampians before hiking in the National Park.
Day 1 We begin the ultimate road trip, cruising towards the Great Ocean Road and stop to watch surfers in action at famed beaches such as Bells Beach and Torquay (home of surf brands Rip Curl and Quicksilver). We also visit artistic beachside villages of Apollo Bay and Lorne. We’ll stop at the historical section of the Great Ocean Road that was carved through cliffs by returned World War I servicemen. We take a walk through the Great Otway National Park, home to some of the world’s oldest temperate rainforest. There’s no better place to finish the day than the famed Twelve Apostles. This spectacular collection of limestone stacks is best appreciated at sunset from the boardwalk. Take the opportunity to view this spectacular sight from the skies in a helicopter (extra cost). Tonight, we sleep in dormitory style accommodation in the dormitory rooms of a backpacker’s hostel on the Great Ocean Road. Day 2: We continue along the Great Ocean Road, stopping at several extraordinary rock formations along the Shipwreck Coast, such as the Bay of Martyrs, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge. We enjoy lunch at Tower Hill Reserve, the site of a dormant volcano, lake, wetlands and habitat to lots of wildlife: emus, koalas, kangaroos, possums, echidnas and many types of birds. We enter the Grampians National Park in the afternoon, where we visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about local Aboriginal history, before taking a walk (40 minutes) to MacKenzie Falls. Before sunset when the local wildlife, such as wallabies, kangaroos and kookaburras come out to play, we walk (an easy hour) to The Balconies, which provides a magnificent viewpoint and photo opportunity of the surrounding ranges and valleys.  Tonight we sleep in shared wood cabin accommodation, with the mountains towering around us.Day 3: We get up to hike a challenging 2 hours to the Pinnacle in the Grampians National Park, but it’s worth the effort for such awe inspiring views. We will enjoy lunch in the Grampians National Park before hitting the highway and arriving into Adelaide city at approximately 7pm.
