Southern Cross


Day 1: Adelaide to Halls Gap

Day one and we're checking off some big landmarks - first up the largest waterfall in Victoria - McKenzie Falls. In a country that is largely desert, it has flowing water year round, so is something of a treasure. Next, the Northern Grampians for panoramic views from the top of Mount Williams, the third highest mountain in Victoria and highest one in the park. And finally the world's third longest river - the Murray River, which is third only to the Nile and Amazon, stretching a whopping 2520Kms and spanning three states. Not bad for a first day!

Day 2: Halls Gap to Port Campbell

We meet the locals, and these guys have been around a lot longer than you'd possibly imagine. They were telling Dreamtime stories before the Pyramids of Egypt were even around! You'll get to paint your own story onto a boomerang and be part of that history. The afternoon we get onto some of the Great Ocean Road's most iconic sights - the Twelve Apostles and a sunset that you will not believe.

Day 3: Port Campbell to Melbourne

Last day, but by no means short on epic views and sights. We get stuck into the twists and turns of the Great Ocean Road. Hairpin bends, just metres between you and the sea and more views than you could shake a stick at! There's a reason nearly 5 million people do this drive every year, and we're confident you'll see why. Not satisfied with all that? Well, we'll tick off the spiritual home of surfing, spot koalas from the lunch spot in a seaside village and then hipster it up as we roll into Melbourne. Get your orders in for deconstructed skinny mochachocalattefrappucinos in. To be fair, it's been voted the most liveable city on the planet for years now, so you might want to stick around…
