Day 2

Great Ocean Road - Coastal Drive and Scenic Flight

The best of both worlds! Travel the most scenic part of the Great Ocean Road on the ground before taking to the skies in a fixed-wing plane or helicopter. There are myriad options for experiences along the Great Ocean Road; your expert guide is on hand to make the day just how you'd like it to be. After a relaxing 90-minute drive from Melbourne, gain an insight into Australian surfing culture at Bells Beach, with rugged cliffs and big waves. Visit the historic Split Point Lighthouse in Aireys Inlet, which is credited with saving hundreds of ships and thousands of lives along Australia's treacherous 'shipwreck coast'. Soak up the atmosphere of Victoria's premier holiday town, Lorne before marveling at the cliff-hugging road that stretches between Lorne and Apollo Bay. It's one of the most spectacular roads in the world, home to monstrous cliffs, roaring seas, tranquil coves, and secluded beaches. Don't worry, there'll be multiple opportunities to stop for photos at our favorite (and often unknown) lookouts. Sample award-winning food, fantastic Victorian wines and panoramic views in one of our carefully selected restaurants in Apollo Bay, or perhaps enjoy a luncheon feast of fresh local seafood served by the water's edge. Next it is time to climb aboard your aircraft and take one of the world's truly great scenic flights. For the rest of the road you'll be flying high. Enjoy breathtaking aerial views of the Twelve Apostles, Moonlight Head, The Cape Otway Light station, Gibson's Steps and Loch Ard Gorge before a gentle touch down back in Apollo Bay. Travel through the majestic Otway Ranges on your return to Melbourne.

Lanes and Arcades Tour Afternoon

Have you ever been to a city and wondered what all the fuss was about? Or wasted time trying to find that cool local café you were told of, and ended up missing everything? Melbourne's arcades and laneways hide many of these answers. Join this indulgent afternoon walk through Melbourne's beautiful back streets, and get orientated in the life of the city that locals love. Discover artisanal and specialty retailers, that often are only found in the city. Some of the quirkiest cafes, independent designers, street art, architecture, and historical tales are found in these walkways. Soak in the city via all your senses, and engage with passionate creatives. There is something for everyone, locals and visitors alike.
