Full description

Exploring some of the highlights of South Australia and Victoria, this week long itinerary offers the chance to cover plenty of ground in the company of an expert Tour Director.

From Melbourne you will explore the many scenic highlights of the Great Ocean Road, before meeting some of Australia’s unique residents at the Tower Hill State Game Reserve. Here you will find endemic wildlife as well as enjoying a comprehensive introduction to the Aboriginal way of life.

Another draw to this region are the prolific wineries, and a chance to sample some of the local produce can’t be missed. An exclusive ‘Your are Invited’ experience provides the opportunity to taste marron (freshwater crayfish) accompanied by locally-made wine.

Your holiday ends with a two night stay on Kangaroo Island. Famed as the ‘Galapagos of the South’, the island boasts abundant wildlife and scenic splendour. Come face to face with sea lions and search for wallabies and ‘roos, before returning to Adelaide and your onward journey.
