Journey through the lush tree-fern gullies and towering mountain-ash rainforests. The imposing Twelve Apostles loom in the distance. Survey the grandeur of this iconic site from the cliff-top and stroll along the boardwalk. See Loch Ard Gorge and discover the romantic and tragic story of love and lives lost aboard the schooner Loch Ard in 1878. Explore Port Campbell National Park and delve into the tragic history of over 50 ships wrecked along this unforgiving coastline. Travel the length of the Great Ocean Road, built by returned soldiers between 1919 and 1932.

Included Meals: Breakfast

Discover Melbourne’s famous laneways and arcades on a walking tour with a local guide. Visit Degraves Street, a popular pedestrian laneway. Explore the heritage Block Arcade and Royal Arcade. See vibrant Flinders Lane filled with boutique designers, trendy cafés and bars before arriving at Hosier Lane, famous for its graffiti-covered walls. This afternoon, travel to Phillip Island, home to an array of wildlife, including Australia’s largest fur seal colony and the endearing Little Penguins. Along the way, visit an animal park for up-close encounters with koalas, kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils and more. View spectacular coastal scenery at The Nobbies, two rocky outcrops abundant in marine life, and browse through the educational Visitor Information Centre. At sunset, watch the Little Penguins as they battle the surf and make their way to their dune burrows to feed their young.
