This 3-day Great Ocean Road tour is perfectly split between beach and mountains. You'll spend the first day and a half on the Great Ocean Road before travelling north into the mountains. It is almost like two separate tours as both regions command your full attention. The Great Ocean Road has different scenery around every corner and is full of life and movement. The Grampians is calmer and more quiet and offers some incredible viewing and walking experiences as well as being very rich in Aboriginal culture and rock art. The aim is to provide our small groups with compelling but relaxed itineraries matched with unique and wonderful accommodation and dining experiences. Your guide will tell tales of shipwrecks and explorers and help you in any way to have a great Australian journey.
