Nothing like an experience on the Oceanic Escapade, for all the coast lovers! Leaving Melbourne behind, explore the Great Ocean Road, an Australian National Heritage listed 243-kilometre stretch of road along the south-eastern coast of Australia between the Victorian cities of Torquay and Warrnambool. Further more experience Kangaroo Island’s pristine wilderness – a place that has offered protection to substantial populations of native Australian animals, a place of beauty and a place of escape.
