Your City Stay

Day 1: Arrive Melbourne

On arrival at Melbourne Airport you will be transferred to your hotel for your three night stay. The afternoon and evening are at leisure for you to explore the city.

Hotel: Mercure Hotel Welcome (standard), Crowne Plaza (superior).

Day 2: Great Ocean Road

On your journey, view the popular coastal townships of Apollo Bay and Lorne, a surfer's haven and retreat. See many fern filled gullies and river inlets. Travel the length of the Great Ocean Road passing towering limestone cliffs, sweeping white beaches and stunning forest scenery. Witness a fabulous spectacle of massive natural erosion. Contrasts abound between rugged coast and verdant rainforest living side by side. See the amazing Twelve Apostles, limestone stacks rising dramatically from the Southern Ocean. Walk along the boardwalk and enjoy the scenery from various viewing platforms.

See Loch Ard Gorge and be swept away by the romantic and tragic story of love and lives lost aboard the Loch Ard. Explore Port Campbell National Park. Discover the tragic history of over 50 ships wrecked along this rugged coastline. Continue beyond Port Campbell to the remnants of London Bridge.

Day 3: Penguin Parade

Discover the charm of Melbourne on a sightseeing tour. This afternoon, travel to Phillip Island, home to an array of wildlife, including Australia’s largest fur seal colony and the endearing Little Penguins. Along the way, visit an animal park for up-close encounters with koalas, kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils and more.

View spectacular coastal scenery at The Nobbies, two rocky outcrops abundant in marine life, and browse through the educational Visitor Information Centre. At sunset, watch the Little Penguins as they battle the surf and make their way to their dune burrows to feed their young.
