Wine,Music,Cheese,Ciders (Yarra Valley)
We'll pick you up in the morning and mainly focus on everyone getting to know each other. We get everyone to add to a Spotify playlist so we have some tunes and spend the first hour just chatting! On my trip we will go to 4 places, each consisting of 6-7 tastings. I have a bunch of wineries that I know you'll love and will go to them if no-one is too picky, however I make sure I listen to the group. My trip is a little democracy. Everything we do on my trip is discussed by the group in the morning. I will give you options to choose from including 50-70 different wineries, cheese factories and chocolate factories, Cider houses, restaurants and breweries. We WILL go to 4 of these places, however if we choose the Gin distillery, brewhouse or a restaurant there may be added expenses (no more than 5$ each) However if you just want to come along and put your trust in me, we will visit 4 four unique wineries, all with a point of difference, with a 45 minute stop at a very scenic one for some snacks that I encourage you to bring along. I also play guitar and like to enjoy snacks, wine and music as a group. We'll also go for a search for Kangaroos in a secret spot! Will be back by 5pm:) Other things to note Bring your own food as the region does not have readily available cafe's restaurant. We can always stop somewhere but it might be a little later in the day and you might get hungry!
12 Apostles, Otways & Great Ocean Road
Want to explore the Great Ocean Road in style with a local Aussie guide? Our premium (but humble) small group experience is made for you :) @hikeandseektours we like to keep it small, so join the group of 8 other awesome travellers for this memorable day adventure. With coffees in our hands we’ll depart Melbourne and head straight to the famous 12 Apostles before the masses of people arrive. We promise you’ll never forget this view! After the Apostles and Gibson Steps, it's time for a delicious lunch at our favourite local cafe before driving through the Great Otway National Park. Here we’ll take an easy-moderate 3km hike through an ancient rainforest to the dreamy Beauchamp Falls (Psst! The big bus companies can't make it here). Always wanted to see humongous trees? On our next stop we will take a stroll amongst the ‘Giants of the forest’. Photos won’t do any justice of this place, so you *have to* experience it yourself. From there we’ll cruise along the iconic Great Ocean Road stopping at Apollo Bay for an optional award-winning gelato. Say G’day to some wild koalas, drop bears, king parrots & kangaroos at Kennett River and walk or swim at the beach in the surftown Lorne - or simply grab a snack before heading back to Melbourne. It is a long way but once in a lifetime roadtrip! Other things to note Grade 2: No bushwalking experience required. The track is a hardened or compacted surface. There is driving involved on this experience but the views are definitely worth it and our van is very comfy.
