Itinerary
Day 01
Halls Gap

Adelaide - Grampians National Park - Halls Gap

Hotel: Grampians Eco YHA or similar

Set off early and travel inland to Grampians National Park, known for its sandstone mountain range and impressive rock art. Here we'll trek through the forest, lush with vegetation and wildlife.

Then we'll head to Reed Lookout, overlooking Victoria Valley, and enjoy a short walk with beautiful scenery to the Balconies, formerly called the Jaws of Death. Check out the gorgeous view, but be careful not to lean too far over the edge!

Afterwards we'll visit MacKenzie Falls, the only waterway in the region that flows year-round and it is also the most visited waterfall in the Grampians; take a short walk and check out the falls out from a viewing platform. In Spring, see wonderful wildflowers in bloom along the path.

Tips:
Breakfast is included.
Day 02
Port Campbell

Halls Gap - London Arch - Port Campbell

Hotel: Port Campbell Hostel or similar

Enjoy an early morning walk in Grampians NP, lush with vegetation and wildlife. Time permitting, you can visit an Aboriginal Cultural Centre to learn about the significance of the area to the indigenous people.

Attempt to blow into a didgeridoo, paint and then throw a boomerang, or go on a guided walk through gardens planted with native herbs and plants. You can also head to the Bushfoods cafe and sample the local delicacies - kangaroo, emu, and crocodile. Anyone still hungry?

Then we'll along the Great Ocean Road, viewing sites including the collapsed London Arch in Port Campbell National Park. Formerly the London Bridge, until part of the arch collapsed in 1990, the London Arch showcases the art of nature - the erosion of limestone and the beautiful rock formations it creates.

Then we'll arrive in Port Campbell for our overnight stay.

Day 03
Loch Ard Gorge

Port Campbell - 12 Apostles - Melbourne

From Port Campbell we'll explore the scenic attractions of the Great Ocean Road including the picturesque Loch Ard Gorge and the 12 Apostles formations. We'll stop at the Great Otway National Park for an included rainforest walk en route to Melbourne.

Located along the Great Ocean Road, beautiful Loch Ard Gorge shows the process of erosion in action. See offshore stacks and blowholes, and watch short tailed shear waters soar over the nearby island. This location is a perfect backdrop for a group photo. Get snapping!

Then we'll stop at a scenic lookout point along the Great Ocean Road and capture the beautiful views over the ocean and the 12 Apostles. Now with only eight formations still standing, these iconic attractions were once limestone caves which eroded to become arches and eventually stacks up to 45m (147 ft) in height.

Afterwards we'll head to the Great Otway National Park. Here we'll take in the beautiful greenery of the Great Otway National Park on a leisurely walk with your CEO. Stroll sandy beaches and hike along the rugged coastline, take photos from rock platforms, and head north to see forests, green gullies, pristine lakes and gushing waterfalls.

The tour will end upon arrival in Melbourne in the afternoon. Consider booking post-tour accommodation in Melbourne to explore the city.

Special Notes
  • Please note that this is a Yolo style tour and requires all travelers be between 18-39 years of age.
  • Visa
    All countries require a valid passport (with a minimum 6 months validity). Contact your local embassy or consulate for the most up-to-date visa requirements, or see your travel agent. It is your own responsibility to have the correct travel documentation. Visa requirements for your trip will vary depending on where you are from and where you are going. We keep the following information up to date as far as possible, but rules do change and sometimes without warning. While we provide the following information in good faith, it is vital that you check the information yourself and understand that you are fully responsible for your own visa requirements.
    A valid passport and visa is required. For some nationalities, the visa can be issued by your Travel Agency or the Australian Embassy via Electronic Travel Authority (ETA).

    To apply for an ETA online, travelers must hold a passport from one of the following countries:
    - Brunei - Darussalam
    - Canada
    - Hong Kong
    - Japan
    - Malaysia
    - Singapore
    - South Korea
    - United States

    More information about the ETA and how to apply can be found here: https://www.eta.immi.gov.au/ETA/etas.jsp

    If you do not hold a passport from any of the above countries, you cannot apply for an ETA online. You may be eligible to apply for an ETA through a travel agent, airline or an Australian visa office. Alternatively, you may be eligible to apply for other types of electronic visitor visas. See: www.immi.gov.au

  • Joining Hotel Please be on time, the tour must leave on time in order to complete the day's activities. For 2016, the pick up time is at 7am sharp from: YHA Adelaide 135 Waymouth St Adelaide Central Adelaide Australia (+618) 84143010 Joining Instructions
    If you are taking a taxi: $30-$40, approximately 20km from the joining hotel and should take no more than 30 minutes.
    If you are taking a Shuttle Bus: $10 per person - The shuttle provides a regular scheduled bus service between Adelaide Airport, Keswick Interstate Railway Terminal and the Adelaide central business distrcit (CBD).
  • Tipping
    It is not customary in New Zealand or Australia to tip service providers, but if you do experience outstanding service it is good to do so. Such service would only usually be in places like quality restaurants and it would be very rare that you would tip more than 10%. Unless specifically asked to do so at the time (by your CEO) - do not tip your local guides. Also at the end of each trip if you felt your G Adventures Chief Experience Officer did an outstanding job, you may consider a small tip - but it certainly isn't expected.
  • Please also make sure you have access to at least an additional USD $200 (or equivalent) as an 'emergency' fund, to be used when circumstances outside our control (ex. a natural disaster) require a change to our planned route. This is a rare occurrence!
  • Credit Cards
    Credit cards are accepted almost everywhere in Australia and can be used to purchase small and large items. When purchasing products or services with a foreign credit card you may be charged additional fees by your credit card company for foreign purchases.

    Credit cards and debit cards are very useful for cash advances but you must remember to bring your PIN number (be aware that many ATM machines only accept 4-digit PINs). Both Cirrus and Plus system cards are the most widely accepted debit cards. Both Visa and Master Cards are the most widely accepted credit cards. While ATMs are commonly available, there are no guarantees that your credit or debit cards will actually work check with your bank before you travel. A visit to an ATM can be arranged on Day 1 and other days of the trip.

    Do not rely on credit or debit cards as your only source of money. A combination of local currency (preferably smaller bills, 5's, 10's and 20's), traveler's checks and credit cards is best. Currency exchange is best obtained prior to travel or at the airport, currency exchange is easy to find in Australia in the gateway cities and most banks do accommodate.
  • What To Bring
    You will be on the move a lot, so our advice is to pack as lightly as possible. We recommend the use of a well-labeled duffel bag, soft bag or backpack (whichever you find easiest to carry). Suitcases or heavy luggage are not recommended for the health of the CEO! A good size day-pack (20-35L) is also essential as you will have the chance to walk and hike in different national parks during these trips. This daypack will be used to carry your personal gear for the day, your lunch and a water bottle.
  • Meals
    Eating is a big part of traveling. Travelling with us you experience the vast array of wonderful food that is available out in the world. Generally meals are not included in the trip price when there is a choice of eating options, to give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where, what and with whom to eat. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility, though generally food is cheap. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to taste a larger variety of dishes and enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this though. Your CEO will be able to suggest favorite restaurants during your trip. Please refer to the meals included and budget information for included meals and meal budgets.
  • Travel Insurance
    Travel insurance is compulsory in order to participate on any of our trips. When travelling on a group trip, you will not be permitted to join the group until evidence of travel insurance has been sighted by your leader, who will take note of your insurance details. When selecting a travel insurance policy we require that at a minimum you are covered for medical expenses including emergency evacuation and repatriation. A minimum coverage of USD 200,000 is required. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. If you have credit card insurance we require proof of purchase of the trip (a receipt of credit card statement) with a credit card in your name. Contact your bank for details of their participating insurer, the level of coverage and emergency contact telephone number.
  • In order to protect your own property, please bring any valuable items with you at all times. Please do not leave any valuable items on the bus/hotel/attraction/restaurant etc. Tours4fun, local operators, drivers and tour guides will not take any responsibility for any theft loss at any location.
