3 Day/2 Night Melbourne to Adelaide Groovy Grape Tour from Melbourne

Adults from $390

The ultimate roadtrip from Melbourne to Adelaide. Cruise along the epic Great Ocean Road!

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 to explore. We’ll stop at Kennett River Koalas to see the cuddly creatures in the wild and the historical section of the Great Ocean Road that was carved through cliffs by returned World War I servicemen.

We take an easy walk (1 hour) 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. The next morning you will have the opportunity to view it from the skies in a helicopter (at 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. Just before sunset when the local wildlife, such as wallabies, kangaroos and kookaburras come out to play, we walk (an easy 1 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, but it’s worth the effort for such awe inspiring views. We visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about local Aboriginal history. We marvel at the majestic Mt Arapiles, before hitting the highway and arriving into Adelaide city at approximately 7pm.

Please remember …

  • Sometimes our itinerary must be flexible due to road and weather conditions
  • The hike to the Pinnacle is the most challenging walk on the tour through rough terrain, a reasonable level of fitness is required.
  • Parts of the Grampians National Park were affected by bushfire in January 2014, and as a result some trails are closed for repairs. Should they reopen, we will endeavour to visit them.
