Great Ocean Road Eco Day Trip from Melbourne

Twelve Apostles

Beauchamp Falls

You’ll get picked up directly from your hotel by a comfortable bus and driven along the route. And don’t worry, it’s not just looking out the window: your guide will be sharing information, facts, and humor along the way.

Various stops along the route make this an ever interesting day out. Stop at the surf town of Torquay and then admire a few charming beaches before heading to Kennett River, where there is the chance to see some wild koalas.

Have lunch at the scenic town of Apollo Bay and take a swim in the ocean. And then it’s onward to the Great Otway National Park with its incredible semi tropical forests. Here you can try to spot grey kangaroos and swamp wallabies.

And then it’s a matter of visiting Port Campbell National Park, where you’ll find the Twelve Apostles for views that are not to be missed, as well as the Gibson Steps – offshore stacks that make for dramatic photo opportunities.

Get driven back to Melbourne with a stop for dinner on the way if you feel like it.

Yarra Valley Day Trip from Melbourne

Yarra Valley

No longer is it all about Italy and France when it comes to some of the world’s best wine – Australia has already made a name for itself as one of the most prominent and lucrative wine producing regions on the globe.

So if you’re a wine lover, or if you want to see some of the picturesque landscapes offered up by the Yarra Valley, this tour is for you. There’ll be different styles to try: sparkling, white, sweet, red, and all spread out between four different wineries, each with their own unique atmosphere.
