The Grampians National Park is home to an amazing array of wildlife and the best way to experience that is to stay overnight in the heart of the Grampians. This two day tour includes a full day exploring the Great Ocean Road plus cosy accommodation in Halls Gap. The moment when the morning sun hits the surrounding mountain ridges with kangaroos hopping, kookaburras laughing and the smell of gum trees is a memory you will carry with you for a long time!

Hi! I was on the 2-day trip with Tim to Great Ocean Road and Grampians.I stayed at the Grampians Motel and it was GREAT... very clean, nicely appointed and had everything I needed. The bed was very comfortable.I also want to apologize to Tim for rushing off without thanking him and saying goodbye. He was a terrific guide... very knowledgeable and concerned for our comfort. I LOVED how he used music to introduce a new story or area of interest. He learned our names and nationalities quickly and truly set a tone of congeniality. He also helped me with a couple technology issues with my phone, for which I am VERY grateful!I thoroughly enjoyed the trip
Highly recommended!! It was such a great weekend on the Great ocean road and the Grampians. Our tour guide Craig was so knowledgeable, he knew everything and tried to show us as much as possible!! We were just 8 people so very lucky... The accommodation for the night was very good, clean and comfortable. I also got picked up and dropped of near my hostel, so don't worry about it. This weekend couldn't have been better!
