Tour Highlights
En Route: This morning’s tour is packed with city sights and historical landmarks. Take a seat and enjoy the bustle of Melbourne’s city as your Driver Guide keeps you posted on what to look out for along the way.
City Centre: First you’ll tour through Melbourne’s city centre. Considered the shopping capital of Australia, the city and surrounding suburbs are home to modern shopping malls and boutique stores featuring world- class brands and products.
Sporting Complexes: While other states may disagree, Melbourne is the sporting capital of the country. Today you’ll see the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) which hosts Aussie Rules football and is the birthplace of Test Cricket. You’ll also drive past Rod Laver Arena, the venue for the Australian Open Tennis Tournament and into Albert Park to see the Formula 1 Grand Prix track.
Parliament House: Next you can take a look at the imposing Parliament House. Construction of this enormous building commenced in 1855 and continued in stages until 1929. It is the largest 19th century building in Australia and is considered to be one of the finest examples of architecture from that period anywhere in the world.
Queen Victoria Market photo opportunity: Drive past this treasured icon to the locals, a major landmark in Melbourne. It’s the only surviving 19th century market in the CBD and is also the largest open-air market in the Southern Hemisphere.
Fitzroy Gardens: Now it’s time to stretch your legs and take a look around the beautiful Fitzroy Gardens. Set on 26 hectares, these gardens were classified by the National Trust in 1974 and are highly valued for their historic and horticultural significance. Here you can visit the Conservatory for its incredible floral display, or the quaint Tudor Village.
Cook’s Cottage: This lovely little cottage in the heart of Fitzroy Gardens was the original home of Captain James Cook’s parents. It has been carefully restored and maintained, filled with furniture of the period and surrounded by a garden of the 18th century. Take a wander into the cottage (own expense) and you’ll be transported back in time to the 1700s.
Shrine of Remembrance: You’ll be deeply moved by this proud memorial to the men and women of Australia who served in the First World War. It is one of the largest memorials in the country and is Melbourne’s most recognised landmark.
 
Day 03: Melbourne
After breakfast in the hotel, proceed for
Phillip Island – Penguins, Kangaroos & Koalas
Includes: Entry to Maru Koala & Animal Park and the Penguin Parade, Experienced Driver Guides, Comprehensive commentary, Travel in an air-conditioned coach
 
Tour Highlights
En Route: This afternoon you will travel south-east, heading to Westernport Bay. The route will take you through many of Melbourne’s affluent suburbs where you will see tree lined streets and beautiful homes, many built in the late 1800s. As the South Gippsland Highway approaches the landscape becomes more rural dotted with smaller townships and farming properties.
Maru Koala & Animal Park: First stop is Maru Koala & Animal Park for up close and personal encounters with koalas, kangaroos, Tasmanian Devils and much more!*
Phillip Island: You’ll cross the only bridge that connects Phillip Island to the mainland. Home to the famous Penguin Parade, Phillip Island also features a stunning coastline with great surf conditions and a range of wildlife including the largest colony of fur seals in Australia. It is also the location of our Motorcycle Grand Prix track, so it’s no wonder this island paradise attracts up to 3 million visitors each year.
Nobbies Rock Formations: Before reaching the Penguin Parade site you’ll see the ‘Nobbies’, so named for its unique rock formations. Located at the western tip of the island, this area has high conservation significance due to its population of penguins and graceful sea birds.
Penguin Parade: So you think the koalas are cute – just wait until you see the Little Penguins. After visiting the information centre, you’ll head down to Summerland Beach to witness penguin magic. As the sun sets, the wild Little Penguins emerge from the sea after a hard days fishing and waddle across the sand to their dune burrows. These Little Penguins are the smallest of the penguin species and Phillip Island is home to the largest colony in the world. It’s easy to understand why this wonderful spectacle is one of Australia’s most popular wildlife attractions. To protect these Little Penguins, all revenue generated from the parade is invested into environment and education projects.

Great Ocean Road: The Great Ocean Road stretches for 243 kilometres along the stunning south-eastern coast between Torquay and Warrnambool.

Here you can relax and treat yourself to lunch at one of the many cafés and restaurants, or you can take a stroll along the picturesque beachfront.
The Twelve Apostles: The rugged splendour of the approaching Twelve Apostles is just breathtaking. These incredible limestone rock formations up to 45 metres high are the result of erosion that began up to 20 million years ago. Your Guide will share the history of their fascinating evolution while you take in the great spectacle of this natural wonder. If you find you can only count 8 Apostles and not 12 – test your Driver Guide’s knowledge as to why!!
Scenic Walk: There are many walks around the location of the Twelve Apostles providing closer access to the shoreline. From the cliff top viewing area you can absorb the grandeur of this iconic site and take some photographs.
Loch Ard Gorge: Now you’ll visit the beautiful Loch Ard Gorge and learn of the ill-fated English ship ‘Loch Ard’ that ran aground on nearby Muttonbird Island in 1878. The ship sank within 15 minutes, taking with it all but two of the 54 passengers and crew on board. The survivors came ashore and found refuge at what is now known as Loch Ard Gorge, a striking example of the process of erosion.
Port Campbell: Now you can take a well earned break at the gorgeous little seaside village of Port Campbell. Sheltered by cliffs and Norfolk pines, this little haven has a colourful and lively personality. You can treat yourself to afternoon tea at one of the cafés or bakeries luring you to homemade treats (own expense).

You can wander through the town to get a feel for the lifestyle as it was then.
Eureka Stockade: The first thing that you’ll experience at Sovereign Hill is the amazing story of the Eureka Stockade, an event that was fuelled by government taxes that were being imposed on miners at the time. The first armed rebellion of its kind in Australia, it led to the deaths of twenty-two diggers and five troopers, and changed Australia’s history forever with the birth of democracy.
Red Hill Mine Tour: Go down into the depths of a real underground gold mine and discover the dark and dangerous world of deep lead mining. Here you’ll also witness the discovery of the famous ‘Welcome Nugget’.
Gold-panning: One of the many fun things you can do at Sovereign Hill is pan for gold. There are diggers on hand to show you the tricks used to strike it rich, and then you can have a go and try your own luck.
Street Theatre: You’ll be entertained by the many performances each day illustrating the exciting and colourful life on the gold fields. With wonderful costumes of the day and many stories to share, the characters will sweep you up in the fun of it all.
