Over the two days of this trip, you will visit the most popular attractions lying to the west of Melbourne. They are the Great Ocean Road, Grampians National Park and the gold rush mining museum Sovereign Hill. A benefit of this route is that by moving along the edge of Melbourne you won’t be returning via the same path. Over the two days, you will see as much as you normally would on three separate one day tours.
The first day of the trip you will spend travelling along the Great Ocean Road, to its primary attraction, the 12 Apostles, unique cliffs that tower out in the ocean near the coast. From the 12 Apostles, the route will take you into the Australian outback along the infinite fields and pastures. You will see provincial Australia the way it is. For the night you will stay in the small town Halls Gap, right at the base of the Grampians mountains. The cost of accommodation in Halls Gap are not included in the price above and should be booked and paid separately.
The second day will start by visiting the mountain viewing platforms. While shooing off the local kangaroos, which are literally everywhere, you will go up to the Boroka and Reeds viewing platforms, and subsequently go down to the Mackenzie waterfall.
During the second half of the day, you will travel to the gold rush town of Ballarat. In it, you visit the mining museum Sovereign Hill, where you delve into the atmosphere of the second half of the 19th century.
If you desire to you may visit the local Australian animals park, where you can meet with kangaroos, koalas, wombats and many other marsupials. In this park is also a locally rare reptile – the Australian saltwater crocodile, one of the largest crocodiles in the world.
After visiting Ballarat you will return to Melbourne and arrive at around 19:00.

    Laura W., Tacoma, United States - Yarra Valley tour, May'16

    I planned an incentive trip for some of our customers. I needed to book something for their guests to do on the day we had our customers at our corporate offices and decided a Yarra Valley Wine Tour was in order. We decided to book through Bilby Travel. I was a bit nervous because I wasn't going to be at the hotel when they picked up our guests and I wasn't going to be on the tour nor had we used Bilby before. Max at Bilby coordinated everything, picked up our guests in the hotel lobby and took them for the day. All the guests reported back that Max was a great tour guide, a great driver, and they had a wonderful day with him. They told me I should use him again. The day included wineries, lunch, a chocolate stop and a cheese business. We will be using him again in February 2017!

    The tour was very well organised. From the initial enquiry right through to the day of the tour everything was planned and communicated well. Thanks Max & Michael for the wonderful organisation, the team and myself had a wonderful day and it was beyond what we expected. Will definitely use your services in the future. Thank You!
