Itinerary

Great Ocean Road
Day
1 : Day 1: Melbourne - Princetown

We begin the ultimate road trip, cruising towards the Great Ocean Road and stop to watch surfers in action at famed beaches such as Bells Beach and Torquay (home of surf brands Rip Curl and Quicksilver). We also visit artistic beachside villages of Apollo Bay and Lorne. We’ll stop at Kennett River Koalas to see the cuddly creatures in the wild and the historical section of the Great Ocean Road that was carved through cliffs by returned World War I servicemen. We take a walk through the Great Otway National Park, home to some of the world’s oldest temperate rainforest. There’s no better place to finish the day than the famed Twelve Apostles. This spectacular collection of limestone stacks is best appreciated at sunset from the boardwalk. The next morning you will have the opportunity to view it from the skies in a helicopter (at extra cost). Tonight, we sleep in dormitory style accommodation in the dormitory rooms of a backpacker’s hostel on the Great Ocean Road.  
Meal(s) included : Lunch, Dinner
Day 2 : Day 2: Princetown - Halls Gap
We continue along the Great Ocean Road, stopping at several extraordinary rock formations along the Shipwreck Coast, such as the Bay of Martyrs, London Bridge and Loch Ard Gorge. We enjoy lunch at Tower Hill Reserve, the site of a dormant volcano, lake, wetlands and habitat to lots of wildlife: emus, koalas, kangaroos, possums, echidnas and many types of birds. We enter the Grampians National Park in the afternoon, where we take a walk (40 minutes) to MacKenzie Falls. Just before sunset when the local wildlife, such as wallabies, kangaroos and kookaburras come out to play, we walk (an easy hour) to The Balconies, which provides a magnificent viewpoint and photo opportunity of the surrounding ranges and valleys. Tonight we sleep in shared wood cabin accommodation, with the mountains towering around us.  
Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Day 3 : Day 3: Halls Gap - Adelaide
We get up to hike a challenging 2 hours to the Grampians, but it’s worth the effort for such awe inspiring views. We visit the Brambuk Cultural Centre to learn about local Aboriginal history before hitting the highway and arriving into Adelaide city at approximately 7pm.  
Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch

Day 4: Barossa Valley
In Williamstown, the gateway to the Barossa, we visit the astonishing Whispering Wall*. As tall as a 9-storey building and constructed in a perfect semi-circle over 110 years ago, it’s possible to hear someone whisper from one end of the dam wall to the other end 140 metres away.

As the vine leaves replace the gum trees, we enter the largest and most celebrated wine region in Australia. Our first stop is the world-famous Jacob’s Creek, the largest wine exporter in the valley. A local guide will provide an informative explanation of their wines and offer a selection of their famed shiraz, merlot and rosé for tasting. 

Our next stop, Kies, is a family-owned boutique winery, where the setting is quaint and the service is personal. Their exquisite wines are not available for sale anywhere else in the world.  For lunch we’ll head to Saltrams for gourmet pizzas. You’ll also get the chance to do a cellar door tour and taste a selection of their wines.

After lunch we’ll slowly make our way to Wolf Blass. This world renowned winery created in 1966 is nowadays one of the world’s most awarded wine brands. We will get the chance to taste their wide range of wines before we pop in our fourth winery: Lambert Estate a family owned business that made their name thanks to their Chocolate port!

Finally, we’ll stop by Menglers Hill lookout for a superb view of the Barossa Valley before heading back to Adelaide, arriving at approximately 5pm. 

Day 5: Adelaide to Alice Springs

We start our adventure travelling through the vineyards of the Clare Valley wine region, but soon enough we’re heading into the rugged Outback through the historic town of Melrose, gateway to the Flinders Ranges. We enjoy an easy stroll through the awesome Alligator Gorge, which is sometimes bursting with wild flowers. We’ll then settle in the heart of the Southern Flinders Ranges for the night. Meal(s) included : Lunch, Dinner

Day 6

Along the way to Coober Pedy – the Opal Capital of the World – you’ll notice the incredible changing landscapes. Wildlife, such as kangaroos, emus and eagles will scatter as road trains thunder across a landscape that resembles Mars or the Moon. On a tour of an underground mine and Opal Mine and Museum you’ll learn about the history of Coober Pedy. A highlight for some is visiting Josephine’s Kangaroo Orphanage, where you can meet the rescued kangaroos and baby joeys and admire (or buy) Aboriginal art and didgeridoos. Tonight, we sleep like the locals do – underground, in bunkhouse accommodation. Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 7 

It’s a big day driving up the Stuart Highway, with several pit stops en route. Our mission today is to reach the majestic Watarrka National Park (Kings Canyon) where we’ll camp for the night in an authentic station. Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 8

We get up early to explore Watarrka (Kings Canyon), where you’ll need to stop to admire and photograph the massive sandstone walls, vast canyon floor and stunning gorges. On the Canyon Rim Walk (3-4 hours), you’ll experience the beautiful Garden of Eden and learn more about the local Aboriginal culture. After lunch, we begin our journey into Uluru. Nothing will prepare you for the sight of The Rock. We quickly set up camp before learning about the local Aboriginal History at the Uluru Kata Tjuta Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Soon after we’ll be experiencing our first awe-inspiring Uluru sunset, taking time to absorb the beauty and majesty of this place. Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 9

We start the day at dawn taking a (3 ½ hour) walk around the base of Uluru. Hiking through acacia woodlands and grassy clay pans, you’ll spot wildlife at waterholes, marvel at The Rock’s geological wonders and learn more about Aboriginal interpretations. Later, we relax back at our campground or join one of our Adrenalin Plus options. Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 10

After devouring yet another scrumptious breakfast we’ll experience a glorious sunrise over Kata Tjuta, before we hike to lookouts around Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) and visit the majestic Valley of the Winds with its ancient rock formations and extraordinary views. After lunch, we’ll hit the road to Alice Springs, arriving approximately at 6:30pm. Drop off at Uluru available after lunch

Testimonials

"I booked a day tour to the Great Ocean Road with Travel Freedom for me and my family. The tour was very good, and we were happy with the experience. The Travel Freedom travel agency were good at communicating with us, and their price was a good deal. I would book other tours with them and recommend them to others."

Shivani Katyal (IND)

"Our Great Ocean Road tour from Melbourne to Adelaide was a great experience. The highlights were the 12 Apostles & the Grampians. We made some great friends and we didn't realise it was such a long distance, so we are glad we did a tour rather than drive ourselves Thanks to Travel Freedom for making the process so smooth."
