Tour of the Week - 2 Day Great Ocean Road and Grampians Tour





If you’re in Melbourne and want to get out of the city, the 2 Day Great Ocean Road and Grampians Tour is the perfect getaway.  Not only will you visit the famous Great Ocean Road, but you will get to experience the Grampians, a natural beauty showcasing Australia’s most incredible landscapes and wildlife. 
On day one you get to experience the amazing coastline, take a walk along one of the beaches, check out the local wildlife, and last but not certainly least, visit the internationally-known 12 Apostles.  If seeing the 12 Apostles from the ground isn’t enough, you have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take a helicopter ride and see the famous landmark and their surroundings from above. But the tour isn’t done yet! After you have taken your fair share of photos at the 12 Apostles, the trip continues on to Loch Ard Gorge and the London Bridge.  Both locations offer up some of the best views of the coast in all of Australia.
Throughout the entire tour you will be told stories of the area, the people and the landmarks by
your informative and friendly guide, giving you a look into a part of Australia’s history. 
Day one will end in the Grampians, where you might get lucky and spot a kangaroo or two on a night spotting adventure.  The nature and adventure lover will enjoy day two.  The entire day is spent in the Grampians National Park, seeing Kangaroos, Koalas, Wallabies and more in their natural habitat.   The tour continues to dazzle with breathtaking views at Hollow Mountain and Chautauqua Peak. If you have the strength and proper shoes, you can hike up to the top of Hollow Mountain for an even better view of the national park.
The adventure continues where you get to spend time at Halls Gap, a quaint little village before hearing an informative talk about the history and culture of the local Aboriginal tribes at the
Brambuk Aboriginal Centre. There’s a chance you’ll get to take a wander over to the beautiful Silverband Falls for another photo opportunity. From there, it’s on to Bellfield Lake, where you have the chance to take a nice walk around the lake and relax for a nice picnic. 
To save the best for last (some might think so!) we visit a traditional Aussie Pub in the country to have a drink before we head back to Melbourne. 
If you want to experience raw beauty, local history, and incredible views, the 2 Day Great Ocean Road and Grampians Tour is the best option for you to see it all in one tour.
