Itinerary

Day 1

Pick Up from Melbourne Accommodation

Melbourne to Port Campbell

Welcome to your Topdeck trip - meet your travel buddies and hit the road. If you've ever seen a car commercial, chances are you've seenthe Great Ocean Road. With mere metres between road and water, hairpin bends and epic views out every window - today you'll join thelist of five million people to do this road-of-passage each year. Before putting rubber on the Great Ocean Road, we'll tick off the spiritualhome of surfing, spot koalas in the wild and lunch in a seaside village. This afternoon is all about the Twelve Apostles, aka theStonehenge of Australia. Tonight chill out and get to know who you're travelling with.

Fraser Island to Gold Coast

Next stop: BrisVegas (aka Brisbane). Don't let its namesake fool you - there are no late-night wedding chapels in the sunshine statecapital. Get your bearings on a walking tour of the city centre, before burning down the highway to the golden sandy beaches of Surfers Paradise. Welcome to the Gold Coast.

Gold Coast to Byron Bay

Leave the Gold Coast glitz behind you as we head to Springbrook National Park and its major draw card, Natural Bridge. Next, swap thenational park for surf vibes in Byron - where you can burn incense, sip chai, become a yoga teacher and win cash for being a CheekyMonkey all in one day.

Byron Bay

Anti-McDonald's and anti-anything mass produced (but pro juice bars, beer gardens and beards), Byron is glitzy on the outside but small town-hearted underneath. Hit the shops, test out those newly acquired surfing skills, paddle a sea kayak, or watch whales breach from the Lighthouse in winter. This is the town where peace and tranquillity go to relax. You should too. Or jump out of a plane. Byron doesn't care as long as you're happy.

Byron Bay to Crescent Head

Let the wave chasing begin as we cruise down the coast to the surfing mecca of Crescent Head. Grab some BBQ lunch before we hit thebeach for a private surf lesson on one of the best surfers in the world. Here's your chance to become a bona fide surf master. KellySlater, who?

Crescent Head to Sydney

Try a barrel of a different kind and dip your toes into an oak barrel (literally) in the Hunter Valley today. Swill some vino and taste someof the best grapes in the country before we roll onto the beachside hustle and bustle of Sydney.

Drop Off Sydney

Day 2

+

Port Campbell to Halls Gap

From one natural wonder to another, we'll explore the 167,000 hectares of The Grampians - a mecca for hikers and rock climbers. Morethan just a place to get geology goosebumps, you'll be standing on sacred ground, with 80% of Victoria's Aboriginal rock art on show.Meet the traditional land owners, whose ancestors were scratching and dabbing their Dreamtime stories onto rock long before thePyramids of Egypt were conceived, then paint your own story onto a boomerang. Dinner with the crew tonight.

Day 3

+

Halls Gap to Mt Gambier

By the time we reach Adelaide you'll have nailed a trifecta of the highest, largest and longest landforms across two states. Next up:McKenzie Falls, the largest waterfall in Victoria. It's no Niagara, but flowing water is guaranteed year-round - a rare promise in a countrythat's 40% desert. Then, the Northern Grampians for one last panorama shot where #natureporn trends with views to Mt Williams, thehighest peak in the park and third-highest mountain in Victoria. To complete the trilogy: the Murray River - a bronze medallist to the Nileand Amazon, stretching 2520 kilometres and spanning three states. How's that for a form guide?

Day 4

+

Mt Gambier to Adelaide

Stroll through the Valley Lake conservation area and learn about the pre-human flora and fauna existence. Snap madly away on thecamera as you spot a Skippy - hot tip: don’t go to hug one. Before kicking on to Adelaide, check out the Blue Lake (depending on whattime of the year you visit, you may have your own dilemma of “the dress” kind on your hands - the lake changes colour) and theUmpherston Sinkhole - Australia’s own version of the Sacred Valley of the Inca Trail. Because no South Australian voyage is completewithout wine, we get to concoct our own potion as we stop at Wynn’s Coonawarra vineyard. Chin chin!

Day 5

+

Adelaide

"You've made it to one of the world's coolest cities (according to Lonely Planet). Today's a free day for the adventurous to head out tospot seals, kangaroos and penguins on Australia's answer to the Galapagos: Kangaroo Island. Learn about some of the 46 endemicspecies. Spend the day slurping noodles in the Adelaide Central Market, or take a tram to the seaside village of Glenelg.

Day 6

+

Adelaide to Parachilna

There are more wineries around here than flies on a sheep. On our way to the Clare Valley, we'll stop at the Barossa ReservoirWhispering Wall - there's a time and a place for confessions. This isn't it. There is a classic Aussie pub at the end of the road today

Day 7

+

Parachilna to Quorn

Flinders Ranges National Park is a spoiled brat, it has everything. From mountains to gorges and creeks to rivers, you're lucky you get toplay in it today. Take a hike to Wilpena Pound - a natural amphitheatre about three times the size of Uluru. Then to rock art site ArkarooRock, and the Kanyaka Ruins a lesson in hard yakka at Kanyaka Station - an abandoned sheep and cattle farm.

+

Quorn to Coober Pedy

Day 9

+

Coober Pedy to Alice Springs

It's time to cross the gemstone littered and soft grounds of the Moon Plain up the middle of Australia. Then, check out the world'slongest Dingo Fence (good thing there's a gate) and truck on past some very remote roadhouses before crossing the border into theNorthern Territory. That resort pool is just what the doctor ordered.

Day 10

+

Alice Springs to Uluru

We're hitting the red ground running as we pull into Yulara. It's off to the breathtaking Uluru in the afternoon for a guided tour, and aglass of bubbles as the glow of sunset morphs through 50 shades of red, providing a rockin' live show.

+

Keepwatch for wedge-tailed eagles, spinifex hopping mice and thorny devils. Or splurge on a Harley ride or scenic flight and see the originalTop of the Rock. Later, join a meditative dot painting class in the Aboriginal Art Markets and give yourself a free astrology lesson,stargazing at the endless Southern night sky.

Day 13

+

Kings Canyon to Alice Springs

If you would walk 500 miles (steps), then you'll make it through the toughest part of the Rim Walk - Heart Attack Hill. The Kings CanyonRim Walk is the real deal and the most famous canyon in Oz.
