“Two Voices are there; one is of the Sea, One of the Mountains; each a mighty Voice”

         William Wordsworth, 1888

Koalas fight for real-estate in trees on Cape Otway, overlooking a roaring southern ocean. Nearby, carnivorous snails hunt through ancient rainforest, dripping with filmy ferns. The Great Ocean Road sweeps majestically to Warrnambool, breeding ground for Southern Right Whales in winter and Little Penguins in summer. Descending into Tower Hill’s volcanic crater, you enter a living museum where emus, echidnas, koalas and kangaroos roam wild. Away from the Great Ocean Road’s most famous landmarks, these are some of the most exciting wildlife experiences in Australia.

Itinerary

Day 1-2 This self-drive tour starts from Melbourne where you pick up your hire car and drive to the Great Ocean Road. Arriving at an exclusive eco lodge in the afternoon, you’ll be met by your hosts who specialise in award-winning conservation programs. Over the next two days, you can explore the property with dedicated ecologists, assist with the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned wildlife and participate in ecological monitoring and habitat restoration projects.

Day 3-4 After a drive to Warrnambool, you’ll check in at a luxury bayside resort for dinner. You’ll visit Tower Hill for a guided day and night walk in the mouth of an extinct volcano. You’ll also be guided by members of the Worn Gundidj Aboriginal community to see Emus, Eastern Grey Kangaroos and Koalas. Back in Warrnambool, you’re invited to spend time at the Flagstaff Hill maritime village. Seasonally, there is the opportunity to meet the Maremmas who guard Little Penguins on Middle Island.

Day 5 After breakfast in Warrnambool, you have the rest of the day to wind your way along the Great Ocean Road and photograph the ocean views enroute to Melbourne.
