Wanderlust Australia Coach Tours, Swan Hill to Great Ocean Road coach tour

WOW! That’s the shortest word that sums up the Great Ocean Road – one of the world’s most iconic road trips. If you’ve never been along it or want to go again, then come along with us.

You’ll experience the iconic Twelve Apostles, the first hot springs hotel in Victoria, time to explore boutiques, dine on freshly caught seafood, lunch on bush tucker and even vanilla slices too.

But it won’t all be sitting down. You’ll walk amongst giants in the Otway Ranges, cheer the sprinters at The Stawell Gift, meet cheeky emus and Instagram your heart out with breathtaking views in The Grampians.

What you’ll experience like a local on your Wanderlust Australia 6 day tour

We hit the road with anticipation for our exciting escape to experience the Great Ocean Road!

Making our way to Daylesford we visit the Lavandula Lavender Farm. Stone farmhouse buildings cluster around a cobbled courtyard, surrounded by lavender fields and distant hills. If you cover your ears to block out the Aussie accents, you can just about imagine you’re in Provence France.

Enjoy lunch here before a tour of the house and then it’s onto Geelong for the night.

1 night | Rydges Geelong

Breakfast and dinner at motel | lunch at Lavandula

Passing through Torquay, we commence our breathtaking drive along the Great Ocean Road. Taking in the spectacular natural beauty of our surrounds we arrive at the popular coastal town of Anglesea for our morning break. Continuing to Lorne, we find a remarkable township built amongst forest, stretching right down to the water.

We continue our travels through Apollo Bay to Cape Otway. Steeped in history and surrounded by beauty, the Cape Otway Lighthouse is an unforgettable experience.  In 1848 the lighthouse became the beacon of hope on a dangerous coastline and is one of the oldest lighthouses in Australia. We’ll enjoy afternoon tea here with time to explore before heading to Skenes Creek for our overnight stay.

1 night | Skenes Creek Lodge, Skenes Creek

Breakfast and dinner at hotel | lunch at own arrangements and cost | afternoon tea at Cape Otway Lighthouse

Winding our way up the slopes of the Otway Ranges this morning, we experience the spectacular Otway Fly – the longest and highest canopy walk of its kind in the world! There is a 300-metre flat walk from the carpark to the Visitors Centre, so wear some comfortable shoes.

There are also some steps but buggy style transportation is available – and the treetops view of the Otway’s is an experience well worth the effort! At the end of our up-lifting walk, we’ll enjoy lunch before touring the full length of the Port Campbell National Park’s remarkable coastline.

Tick off some of the must-see landmarks, such as the famous Twelve Apostles and London Bridge before arriving at our hotel in Warrnambool in time for dinner. 

Our hotel for two nights is the Deep Blue Hotel & Hot Springs Warrnambool – the first Hot Springs Hotel in Victoria. Pack your cosie as this is your place to relax, rejuvenate and replenish. Why not have a massage too?

2 nights Deep Blue Hotel & Hot Springs, Warrnambool

Breakfast and dinner at hotel | lunch at Otway Fly

local guide will enlighten us to the inside stories of the town before a visit to the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village. This is a wonderful complex which authentically recreates the appearance, atmosphere and activities apparent in a small historical port.

We have lunch here before travelling to the Tower Hill State Game Reserve. Here we’ll uncover a crater of an extinct volcano teeming with wildlife, including some very bold Emus! Observe the beauty of this reserve along a one-way scenic drive over the bridge to the main body of land before returning to Warrnambool. 

We now have time to explore at leisure before rejoining for dinner.

This morning we travel to Port Fairy, filled with colonial character, it’s a lovely place to take a stroll and browse the many boutique shops.

Leaving the sea breezes, we head to the Grampians and stop at the award-winning Brambuk Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Here we’ll find the very best interpretation of the Grampians National Park, uncovering its exceptional environment and Aboriginal culture.

Enjoying a bush tucker tasting and lunch we then head out to explore the Grampians National Park. Witness some of the best lookouts such as Reeds Lookout and McKenzie Falls – all easily accessible and all with sensational views! Afterwards, we head to Stawell.

1 night | Magdala Motor Lodge, Stawell

Breakfast and dinner at hotel | lunch at the Brambuk Bushfoods Cafe

The history and romance of the Australia Post Stawell Gift is entrenched in Australian folklore, ensuring its status as an icon of Australian Sport. The Gift has been held in all but four years since 1878 and has developed into Australia’s, and notably one of the world’s most famous and prestigious foot races.

It’s a professional athletics meeting incorporating over 60 events, with athletes running off handicaps. We are not able to be part of the actual race but we will experience the atmosphere on our visit to the Stawell Gift Hall of Fame. 

We head to Donald to enjoy lunch before continuing onto Swan Hill. But before you leave Donald, be sure to visit the town’s bakery for a mandatory Vanilla Slice. This completes a wonderfully colourful holiday, surrounded by amazing coastal views and charming seaside villages!
