Itinerary

Day 1 Melbourne – Warrnambool

As this holiday departs early morning from the Crowne Plaza Melbourne, accommodation will need to be pre-booked for the previous night.

Embark on one of the world’s premier road trips – the Great Ocean Road. Enjoy dramatic coastal scenery, pause in quaint seaside towns, and experience the stunning limestone stacks of the Twelve Apostles that tower just off the coast above the wild Southern Ocean. Learn of the heartbreaking history of Loch Ard Gorge, named after the British clipper ship Loch Ard which ran aground nearby on 1 June 1878. Of the fifty-four passengers and crew on board, only two survived. Later, visit the impressive London Bridge natural rock formation before arriving in the vibrant rural city of Warrnambool. Almost every year between June and September, female Southern Right whales return to the waters of Warrnambool’s Logans Beach to calve.

Hotel: Deep Blue Hotel & Hot Springs, Warrnambool

Included Meals: Dinner with wine

Day 2 Warrnambool – Naracoorte

Hotel: William MacIntosh Motor Lodge, Naracoote

Included Meals: Breakfast and dinner with wine

Day 3 Naracoorte – Kangaroo Island

Journey today to the Fleurieu Peninsula, whose green hills are complemented by rugged clifftops, sandy beaches and the Murray River. Visit the seaside town of Victor Harbour, one of South Australia’s popular coastal playgrounds. The Victor Harbour Horse Drawn Tram links the visitor information centre with nearby Granite Island, and is one of the very few horse-drawn tram routes remaining in public transit service anywhere in the world. This afternoon, a ferry takes you to Kangaroo Island, famous for its unspoiled natural beauty and fine local produce. Your final destination is the island’s largest town, Kingscote. South Australia’s oldest European settlement, it is home to a colony of the smallest penguins in the world, the Little Penguin.

Hotel: Aurora Ozone Hotel, Kingscote, Kangaroo Island, 2 nights

Included Meals: Breakfast and dinner with wine

Day 4 Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island, which lies only a short distance off the mainland, is Australia’s third-largest island. Explore this natural wonderland today, enjoying stunning coastal scenery and an amazing variety of wildlife. Visit the spectacular Remarkable Rocks, and later Admirals Arch in Flinders Chase National Park. It took thousands of years of erosion to create the Arch, a distinctive rock bridge near the Cape du Couedic Lighthouse on the island’s southwest coast, and the boardwalk leading to it is nearly as scenic as the landmark itself. You will then enjoy a sumptuous lunch behind the sand dunes at Vivonne Bay Lodge before heading over to partake in a private Birds of Prey show at Raptor.

Put on a glove and have one of the many birds fly to you including kookaburras, owls and falcons or experience holding a wedge tailed eagle and some amazing Australian reptiles. This experience is interactive, educational and fun.

Included Meals: Breakfast and lunch

Day 5 Kangaroo Island – Adelaide

This morning, board your ferry to cross back to the mainland and travel to picturesque Adelaide, the ‘City of Churches’. One of the few Australian cities to not have convict history, Adelaide was established as a planned colony of free immigrants, with civil liberties and freedom from religious persecution. Take an orientation tour before checking in to your hotel for the next two nights. Later, choose one from a range of Included Choice sightseeing experiences. Visit Adelaide Zoo including entry to the Panda enclosure, hear fascinating stories about the early history of Adelaide on a guided walking tour or visit the Art Gallery of South Australia. Later, enjoy an evening meal at any of the city’s wonderful local restaurants.

Hotel: Stamford Plaza Adelaide, 2 nights

Included Meals: Breakfast

Day 6 Adelaide Hills & the Barossa

Discover the rolling Adelaide Hills and world-famous Barossa today, stopping first at picturesque Hahndorf, Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement. As they were colonial pioneers, the German settlers did not have to adapt to British culture, allowing them to maintain their traditional customs and leisure activities. These influences are still to be seen today in Hahndorf. Continue to the Barossa for lunch at The Company Kitchen, before visiting Jacob’s Creek to sample some of their world-famous wines. Travel back to Adelaide through a landscape dotted with stone cottages and olive groves. Tonight, celebrate with your Travel Director at a Farewell Dinner.

Hotel: Stamford Plaza Adelaide

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch and farewell dinner
