Start in the world's most liveable city of Melbourne and head west on the iconic Great Ocean Road through the Grampians (Gariwerd) National Park to Adelaide. Hug the coastline from Adelaide to Perth, dropping into Port Lincoln for a frolic with the sea lions, or a dip with the great white sharks if you dare. Check out Esperance and Fitzgerald National Parks before cruising onto Perth via Wave Rock.
Hike up to the Pinnacles for impressive views across the Grampians (Gariwerd).
Witness the stunning blue seas, powder white sands and secluded bays of Cape Le Grand National Park.
Take the chance to swim with sea lions and dolphins in Baird Bay.
Be treated to exceptional views of Loch Ard Gorge.
Keep an eye out for Koalas high in the gumtrees along the world renowned Great Ocean Road.
This trip is a combination of multishare dormitory accommodation that may be mixed gender. Between Adelaide and Perth, we camp in swags in National parks with very basic toilet and shower facilities.
You're literally crossing our great country from east to west, so there are some serious km we have to cover. Be prepared with reading material and music for those long days.
