Itinerary:

Valid for 01APR16-31MAR18:
Travel over the Westgate Bridge towards Victoria's south west coast and pass through Geelong before reaching the start of the Great Ocean Road in Torquay. The first stop is at Anglesea where wild grey kangaroos can be observed at the local golf club, then onto Lorne for some morning tea and a chance to take in the beauty of the Southern Ocean and surrounding foothills. Kennett River is the next stop allowing the opportunity to see koalas in their natural environment, as well as native birds. Lunch is at the seaside village of Apollo Bay to enjoy some of the local, gourmet produce. On the way through the Otway Ranges a stop is made to enjoy a walk through a cool temperate rainforest gully. This forest dates back millions of years to the times that dinosaurs wandered this region. In 1987, a new species of Dinosaur called Leaellynasuara, dating back 100 million years was found on the coastline at Rotten Point. There is also evidence of Aboriginal tribes living off the land in the form of shell middens dating back over 10,000 years. The history, culture and conflict that has a resonance with the battles of native peoples world wide is explained here. The tour then arrives at the Shipwreck Coast and visits the icons of the Twelve Apostles. Here your guide will explain their creation and constant reformation. Not far is Loch Ard Gorge, the site of the most famous 19th centry Australian shipwreck. Your guide will re-tell the story from the calm voyage, the tragic wreck, the courageous survivors and their ultimate fate. While hearing the tale you will be able to hold some of the original artefacts, phots and documents from the 'Loch Ard' contained in the Natural Treasures treasure chest. The tour then turns for Melbourne travelling through some of Australia's most fertile land and the worlds third largest volcanic plain.
