What You Can Expect
Departing Melbourne at around 8am, you'll pass through Western Plains of Victoria on the way to historic Ballarat. Ballarat boomed in the 1850’s with the widespread discovery of gold in the district. Learn a little about the history and enjoy morning tea at the site of the infamous Eureka Rebellion. Continue the drive through the picturesque western volcanic plains, passing through the town of Moyston, the birthplace of Australian Rules Football.
Arrive at the foot of the Grampians Range known as Gariwerd in the local Jardwadjali language and immerse yourself in the Australian bush with a gentle stroll to the delightful Silverband Falls.
Continue to the township of Halls Gap for lunch. Keep an eye open for the local kangaroos and the abundant birdlife that can be seen in the main street. After lunch, head to the Wonderland Turntable for a short hike to the Grand Canyon. Marvel at the high rising rock walls, crisscrossed with layering and fault lines, showcasing the area’s unique geology. Stunning panoramas await at Reeds Lookout that overlooks the towering Stringybark Forest and Victoria Valley
The next stop is MacKenzie Falls. No trip to the Grampians would be complete without a visit to these majestic falls. Marvel as water cascades down over the rocks, set in a gorge surrounded by eucalyptus forest. Walk the Bluff trail along the top of the cliffs to the panoramic view point of the falls or journey down the stairs to the base of the steep gorge and gaze up at this truly impressive waterfall.
The next port of call is the Boroka Lookout. Boroka provides panoramic views of the surrounding region overlooking the town of Halls Gap and further afield to Lake Bellfield and beyond. You'll then make your way back into Halls Gap for a final opportunity to spot some of the area’s wild kangaroo population before beginning the return trip to Melbourne.
A dinner stop is made on the return journey to Melbourne. After dinner enjoy the use of the complimentary onboard Wi-Fi, before enjoying a stunning view of the illuminated city as you make your way back into Melbourne. With drop-off at your inner city accommodation, you’ll remember this day as a true highlight of your Australian vacation.
