Disembark the Great Southern at Inverleigh Siding west of Geelong, then board your coach for a two hour tour to the Southern Ocean shore. Heading inland, it’s a pretty drive through lush dairy country, past lakes and over the koala-filled Otway Ranges – a journey culminating with the show-stopping sight of Port Campbell National Park, home to the Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and London Bridge rock formations to name just a few. The friendly visitor centre staff here will direct you to your scenic flight – a 25 minute helicopter ride bringing you up close to these crumbling limestone stacks (don’t forget your camera).
After your flight, the coach will take you to stops along the Great Ocean Road for time to explore on foot. Where we visit on the day will depend on summer tourist numbers and site capacities – but any visit to this picture-perfect region will have you reaching for your camera.
Back on the bus, transfer to the meticulously restored Coragulac House (1873) in the Otways hinterland for a festive garden party. Champagne, canapes and an impressive evening meal round-out your day, before you ride back to Inverleigh Siding to reboard the Great Southern.
