Day 1 - UK to Melbourne
Fly from London to Melbourne, arriving the next day.
Days 2-4 - Melbourne
On arrival make your way to your chosen hotel, for a three night stay - we have a range of hotels to choose from, and your length of stay in Melbourne is flexible. Spend a few days exploring cosmopolitan Melbourne - the city is packed with museums and galleries, and is a foodies paradise so we’d suggest eating your way around the city, starting at lively Queen Victoria Market and finishing in the restaurants of the lanes around the city centre.
Day 5 - Melbourne to Lorne
Collect your rental car from the Melbourne depot, and head towards the Great Ocean Road. Today is an easy run to Lorne (approx 140 km / 2 hours, plus stops) - it’s all about surfing on this stretch of coast, so pop in to Torquay, home of surf brands Rip Curl and Quicksilver, and iconic Bells Beach, one of the most famous surf beaches in the world. On arrival in to Lorne check in to your hotel for a two night night stay.
Day 6 - Lorne
Lorne is one of the most beautiful spots on the Great Ocean Road, and makes a great base to spend a day - head out of town to explore the coastline, or take in the beachside swimming pool or the nearby Erskine Falls.
Day 7 - Lorne to Warrnambool
Today is a spectacular drive along the Great Ocean Road to Warrnambool (approx 230 km / 3 hours 45 mins, plus stops). Take your time to take in the sheer beauty of this region, and make plenty of stops - the Twelve Apostles in Port Campbell National Park are the most iconic landmark but there are a host of vistas - Cape Otway offers a dramatic, rugged shoreline, while Apollo Bay has a community feel and superb beach. Warrnambool is an important stop on the Great Ocean Road. On arrival check in to your hotel for an overnight stay.
Day 8 - Warrnambool to Grampians National Park
Today travel from the coast at Warrnambool to Dunkeld and on through the Grampians - we’d suggest going a little out of your way to take in Port Fairy and Cape Bridgewater (approx 325 km / 4 hours, plus stops). Head along the Great Ocean Road via Port Fairy’s whitewashed cottages, and Portland with its historic waterfront. Cape Bridgewater offers a stunning 4 km long beach, while nearby Cape Duquesne has a spectacular blowhole and a seal colony an hours walk away On arrival in to Halls Gap check in to your hotel for a two night stay.
Day 9 - Grampians National Park
The Grampians rise above to plains of Victoria and are amongst the most beautiful landscapes in the state - criss-crossed by hiking trails and with unique rock formations, aboriginal art and a plethora of fauna & flora, spend the day taking in this wonderful region.
Day 10 - Grampians National Park to Robe
Head back through the park and Dunkeld before heading across in to South Australia, travelling via Mount Gambier to Robe, on the coast (approx 345 km / 3 hours 50 mins, plus stops). Mount Gambier is home to Blue Lake, a 75-metre deep lake that turns the most amazing shade of blue in the summer. Caves run under the town and many can be explored on tours. Robe itself is dotted with heritage-listed buildings and has a relaxed atmosphere, with great beaches and excellent dining. On arrival check in to your hotel for an overnight stay.
Day 11 - Robe to Adelaide
Hug the coastline through the Coorong National Park - take the Coorong Scenic Drive just before Meningie to get in to the heart of this unusual landscape (approx 375 km / 4 hours, plus stops). On arrival in to Adelaide drop off your car at the depot and check in to your hotel for a three night stay.
Days 12-13 - Adelaide
Adelaide is a very likeable city, with classic architecture, fabulous restaurants and a multicultural mix - spend a few days visiting key sites such as the Central Market and the Art Gallery of South Australia. The National Wine Centre of Australia gets our thumbs up, or head in to the winelands that surround the city. Cheers!
Day 14 - Return
Make your way to Adelaide airport for your return flight to the UK, arriving the next day.
Travel from Melbourne to Adelaide (or in reverse) via the world-renowned Great Ocean Road, the stunning Grampians and the beautifully remote southeast of South Australia, with this 1,200 km journey packed with epic scenery.
