US$ 861

Explore classic Victoria by first experiencing the highlights of Melbourne. Visit Philip Island and see the Little Penguin Parade before heading along the incredible Great Ocean Road.


See the best of Melbourne and the rugged Victorian coast on this 5 day tour.

Australia’s cultural capital will enchant you with an endless variety of cafés, restaurants, entertainment and world class shopping. Early arrivals might wish to book a table at the Colonial Tramcar Restaurant, for a uniquely Melbourne experience. An included half-day tour takes you to many of the city’s historic sights including Captain Cook’s Cottage, and the numerous cathedrals, parks and gardens that make Melbourne one of Australia’s most picturesque cities. You’ll also visit Phillip Island at dusk to witness the world renowned ‘Little Penguin Parade’.

Australia’s most spectacular coastal drive, The Great Ocean Road is a popular day trip from Melbourne… but why rush? See the Loch Ard Gorge, Bells Beach, London Arch and the famous Twelve Apostles at a more leisurely pace with an overnight stay. Explorer Matthew Flinders observed he had ‘seldom seen a more fearful section of coastline’. Nor a more spectacular one, waiting for you to explore.
