Journey from Adelaide to Melbourne, taking in Kangaroo Island and the Great Ocean Road
Take a memorable road trip through South Australia and Victoria, starting off from Adelaide with a ferry ride to Kangaroo Island. Much of this stunning landscape is protected and is home to an abundance of native wildlife like sea lions, koalas and, of course, the odd roo or two. Meet the residents at Seal Bay, slide a sand board down the dunes of Little Sahara, keep your eyes peeled for the fuzzy guys that live up the eucalyptus trees of Hanson Bay wildlife Sanctuary, and marvel at the huge boulders of the Remarkable Rocks. Continue through the Adelaide Hills, get an insight into local Aboriginal history in the Grampians National Park, then drink in the sweeping vistas of the Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge. Take in each twist and turn of the Great Ocean Road, channel your inner surfer at some famed boarding locations, then finish up in artsy, eclectic Melbourne.
