DAY 01: Adelaide to Kangaroo Island (107 km to Cape Jervis)
This morning make your way to Cape Jervis for a 45 minute ferry to Kangaroo Island. Kangaroo Island is the largest island
off the South Australian coast and shows nature at its wildest and most majestic in a magical combination of sun and sea,
native flora and fauna. The coastline of the island changes from the attractive curved beach at Emu Bay to the rugged cliffs
and roaring surf of the south. On the west are two of the island’s natural wonders; Admirals Arch, a huge arch where stalactites
are silhouetted against the afternoon sun, a magnificent sight. The other is Remarkable Rocks, huge unusually shaped
DAY 02: Kangaroo Island
There is a never ending list of things to do and see on Kangaroo Island and today you have time to explore the natural beauty
of this island and discover Australian wildlife – in the wild! Highlights include Flinders Chase National Park, Kelly Hill Caves,
the “Koala Walk” and the seals at Seal Bay.
DAY 03: Kangaroo Island to Victor Harbour (60 km)
Depart Kangaroo Island, taking the ferry from Penneshaw to Cape Jervis and drive to Victor Harbour. At Victor Harbour walk
across the Causeway or take the horse drawn tram to explore Granite Island.
DAY 04: Victor Harbour to Robe (354 km)
Travel up north making your way towards Murray Bridge, then around Lake Alexandria, skirting through Lake Albert. You will
then travel along the coast, along Coorong National Park before you reach Robe. Robe was once a thriving ships port and
prides itself on the preservation of the town’s history.
DAY 05: Robe to Port Fairy (291 km – or via the Grampians 487 km)
A choice of routes is available. The shorter route will take you via Millicent, and on to Mount Gambier and then along the coast
to Portland and then onto Port Fairy. The longer route means a very early start, from Robe travel to Mt Gambier and then
through the towns of Hamilton, Coleraine and Casterton and onto Dunkeld. From Dunkeld a scenic drive will take you through
the Grampians National Park and onto Halls Gap. Departing from Dunkeld, travel via Penhurst to reach Port Fairy. Port Fairy
is a quaint fishing village with many limestone and bluestone buildings in the town dating back to the 1840’s and classified
by the National Trust.
DAY 06: Port Fairy to Apollo Bay (188 km)
This morning depart Port Fairy and travel towards Warrnambool. Continue along the “Shipwreck Coast” and you will come
across “London Bridge” – the broken arch, before reaching Port Campbell, a quaint little seaside town. Travelling on past Port
Campbell you will first come to Loch Ard Gorge and then a short distance on, the Twelve Apostles, which are huge stone rock
formations carved over time by the waves of this rugged coastline. After Cape Otway re-join the coastline and the unmatched
scenery which is the Great Ocean Road.
DAY 07: Apollo Bay to Melbourne (197 km)
The scenic coastline from Apollo Bay to Lorne has been described as one of the most beautiful and breathtaking drives in the

Geelong along the freeway to cross the West Gate Bridge and arrive in the vibrant city of Melbourne.
