A 3-day wildlife & nature extravaganza! Join us as we take you down the Great Ocean Road, enjoying spectacular ocean views, deep ancient rainforest, and some of the most exceptional wildlife the planet has to offer!

Here, we will search for Koala, Eastern Grey Kangaroo, Pink Robin, Satin Bowerbird, Beautiful Firetail, before exploring after dark searching for Australian Masked Owl, Powerful Owl, the Otways Black Snail (a rare carnivorous snail!) and marvelling at private night-time gullies brightened by Glow Worms. The next morning, we will continue east exploring the wonders of the Great Ocean Road, including The Twelve Apostles, several waterfalls, and spending a few hours Whale Watching. Later, we will visit an extinct volcano where we will get up close and personal with Emu, Eastern Grey Kangaroo, Koala, Swamp Wallaby, Short-beaked Echidna, and dozens of birds, before retiring to Port Fairy for exceptional seafood dining. On our last day, we will watch the sun rise as we walk along world-class beaches marvelling at migratory shorebirds (including the critically endangered Hooded Plover) and wetland animals, before heading back to Melbourne, with a few forest and lake highlights along the way!

The Otways tour was wonderful. We saw koalas, emus, wallabies, snakes & an echnida and in the evening we saw glow worms & bats. Fantastic! We walked a short way along a track & then suddenly the whole side wall was covered in tiny lights. I had never seen glow worms before; it was magical!
