Starts: Adelaide SA, Australia
Ends: Melbourne VIC, Australia
Day 1: Adelaide to Halls Gap
By the end of today you’ll have nailed a trifecta of the highest, largest and longest landforms across two states. Straight outta the gate: McKenzie Falls, the largest waterfall in Victoria. It’s no Niagara, but flowing water is guaranteed year-round-a rare promise in a country that’s 40% desert. Then, the Northern Grampians for one last pano where #natureporn trends with views to Mt Williams, the highest peak in the park and third-highest mountain in Victoria. To complete the trilogy: the Murray River-a bronze medallist to the Nile and Amazon-stretching 2520 kilometres and spanning three states.
Day 2: Halls Gap to Port Campbell
Meet the traditional land owners, whose ancestors were etching and dabbing their Dreamtime stories onto rock long before the Pyramids of Egypt were conceived, then paint your own story onto a boomerang. This afternoon is all about the Twelve Apostles, aka the Stonehenge of Australia and a sunset to write home about.
Day 3: Port Campbell to Melbourne
If you’ve ever seen a car commercial, chances are you’ve seen the Great Ocean Road. With mere metres between road and water, hairpin bends and epic views out every window – today you’ll join the list of five million people to do this road-of-passage each year. Before putting any rubber on the GOR, we’ll tick off the spiritual home of surfing, spot koalas in the wild and lunch in a seaside village, before arriving in Melbourne that evening.
