The scenic route between Melbourne to Adelaide has never been easier

or more rewarding. It takes in some of Australia’s best beaches,

greenest forests, most amazing marine parks and dramatic cliffscapes.

It features internationally renowned icons like the Twelve Apostles on

the Great Ocean Road, the Naracoorte World Heritage Fossil site and

the place recently recognised as the number one island in the Asia

Pacific, Kangaroo Island.

It offers the chance to see unique Australian

wildlife like kangaroos, wallabies, koalas,

echidnas and emus in the wild.

Then there is the wine – from the cool

climate whites of the Geelong and Adelaide

Hills regions to the big reds of the

Coonawarra, Padthaway, Langhorne Creek,

and McLaren Vale wineries.

Travelling between Melbourne and Adelaide

is not so much a journey as a celebration of

the many wonderful things that southeastern

Australia has to offer.

This celebration can be undertaken in any

number of ways. The first is by following the

coastal route, leaving Melbourne for the

Great Ocean Road, the Great Otway National

Park, the Twelve Apostles, Cape Bridgewater

and its seal colonies and the abundant

wildlife of the Coorong National Park and

Kangaroo Island. Then there are the

delightful coastal villages that meet every

need – towns and beaches like Anglesea,

Lorne, Port Fairy, Beachport, Robe, Goolwa,

Victor Harbor and Kingscote on Kangaroo

Island.

An inland alternative leaves Melbourne and

heads towards the city of gold, Ballarat, and

the Grampians National Park, home to a

wonderful collection of Aboriginal rock art.

Across the border, there’s yet another wine

region to tantalise the tastebuds, the

Coonawarra, before reaching the Murray

Coast & Kangaroo Island

THE JOURNEY

The Princes Freeway leading out of Melbourne is the

start of a magical journey through some of the most

magnificent coastal landscapes in the world.

At Geelong, the road becomes the aptly named

Surf Coast Highway as it heads to the seaside

resort of Torquay. From there it becomes the

Great Ocean Road, one of the journeys of a

lifetime in its own right and also the world’s

biggest war memorial.

The road was carved out of the seaside cliffs

by soldiers returned from World War I in honour

of their fallen comrades. A bronze statue at

Eastern View called ‘The Diggers’ honours both

those killed in the war and also the road’s

builders. A special platform has been built to

allow visitors to have their photo taken safely

alongside the sculpture and also under the

Great Ocean Road Arch.

After Apollo Bay, the road takes a gentle detour

away from the coast and through the Great

Otway National Park. Two more short detours

are highly recommended must do experiences –

walking among the tops of some of Australia’s

tallest trees at the Otway Fly Treetop Walk or

taking in the 360 degree view from the Cape

Otway Lightstation.

Driving on, the Port Campbell National Park,

home of the Twelve Apostles, comes into view.

A great way to see the Twelve Apostles is from

the beach at the bottom of Gibson Steps,

named after one of the first European settlers in

the region.

Warrnambool, once a busy seaport, is now a

growing resort town built around Lady Bay and

the Merri and Hopkins River. Flagstaff Hill

Maritime Village and its Shipwrecked sound and

laser show that relives the sinking of the Loch

Ard, with the loss of 52 lives, is just one reason

to spend the night in Warrnambool.

Portland, the birthplace of Victoria, is an ideal

spot to spend a night or two. With its great

vantage point overlooking the bay and an array

of historic accommodation options.

Across the border, Port MacDonnell is a historic

port and also the southern most town in South

Australia. It is home to South Australia’s largest

lobster fishing fleet.

Like Port MacDonnell, Kingston is famous for its

lobsters. That’s why there is a Big Lobster

holding pride of place in the fishing port also

highly regarded as a peaceful holiday setting.

After passing through the wildlife haven of the

Coorong National Park, there’s the chance to

see even more wildlife on Australia’s third

largest island, Kangaroo Island.

Over a third of the island is preserved for wildlife.

Beaches, cliffs, shipwrecks, lighthouses and

marine parks are all features of the 540-

kilometre coastline.

Visitors can take their car on the ferry from Cape

Jervis to Penneshaw. The 45 minute trip allows

time to relax with a cup of coffee and keep an

eye out for dolphins and whales.

The island’s isolation has ensured an abundance

of wildlife including koalas, kangaroos, sea lions,

penguins, echidnas and native bird life. There

are walking trails throughout the island and

being so big, there’s plenty of space. Cars,

camper trailers and recreational items are all

available for hire on the island.

The last leg of the trip, from Kangaroo Island

into cosmopolitan Adelaide, is a comfortable

111 kilometres through the Fleurieu Peninsula.

Melbourne Adelaide Touring Route


HIGHLIGHTS

> Bells Beach

> Twelve Apostles

> Victor Harbor

> Kangaroo Island

> Top 10 Experiences

1. Werribee Open Range Zoo: A little bit,

well a lot in fact, of Africa just 30 minutes

from Melbourne. Leopards, rhinos and

giraffes are just some of the major wildlife

attractions.

2. Geelong Botanic Gardens: A unique mix

of exotic and Australian fauna, including a

Wollemi Pine, the oldest tree in the world.

The gardens overlook Corio Bay and

Eastern Beach.

3. Bells Beach: Venue for the world’s longest

running professional surfing tournament,

the Rip Curl Pro. Watch the pros in action

from vantage points high above the break.

4. Gibson Steps: Walk down the steps to the

beach in the Port Campbell National Park to

get a different view of the Twelve

Apostles. Watch out for wildlife, including

penguins.

5. Whale spotting: Between June and

September, female Southern Right Whales

come to Logans Beach in Warrnambool, off

the Goolwa and Victor Harbor coast on the

Fleurieu Peninsula and can be seen along

the Kangaroo Island coast.

6. Penguins galore: Watch the nightly

penguin parade on Kangaroo Island at

Kingscote and Penneshaw or on Granite

Island at Victor Harbor.

7. Seal Bay Conservation Park: A guided

beach walk is a great to way see and learn

about Australian sea lions. Watch the sea

lions, jostle, play and ‘surf’ along this

stretch of stunning coast. A memorable

experience every time.

8. “Best Beach in Australia”: A Sydney

professor concluded recently that Vivonne

Bay on Kangaroo Island is Australia’s best

beach because of its aqua blue waters,

clean sand and Southern Ocean vitality.

9. Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch:

Shaped by the elements, these are a

highlight of a visit to Flinders Chase

National Park on Kangaroo Island.

10. Lighthouse tours: Take in the maritime

history of the island by exploring the three

lighthouses at Cape Willoughby, Cape

Borda and Cape du Couedic, each with

their own fascinating story to tell.


Ballarat, Grampians & Wine Country

THE JOURNEY

Taking the inland route from Melbourne

to Adelaide is a golden opportunity not

to be missed.

Ballarat is the city of gold, springing up almost

overnight when the precious metal was

discovered in the region in the 1850s, including

the world biggest nugget, The Welcome

Stranger. Today that story of gold is told all

around the city, in its grand architecture and at a

number of major attractions.

Sovereign Hill is a living, breathing gold rush

town. Visitors can pan for gold and ride on a

stagecoach. At night the sound and laser show,

Blood on the Southern Cross, tells in fiery detail

the story of the Eureka Stockade rebellion, just

one of two civil uprisings in the history of

Australia. More than 20 miners protesting

against new government taxes died in the

battle, along with four troopers.

The flag under which the rebels fought is on

display in the Art Gallery of Ballarat. The Eureka

Centre, built on the site of the bloody battle, has

a complete list of all the participants on both

sides.

Situated on Lake Wendouree, Ballarat also has

fine Botanic Gardens.

The road from Ballarat to the Grampians

National Park passes through some of the finest

wine growing country in Victoria, including the

town of Great Western.

Ararat is unique in Australian history as the only

town founded by Chinese settlers. The story of

their struggles and eventual success are told at

the Gum San Chinese Heritage Centre.

The town of Stawell is home to Australia’s

oldest and richest foot race, the Stawell Gift

held over Easter each year.

Halls Gap, inside the Grampians National Park,

rests beneath two towering mountains. A visit

to Brambuk – The National Park and Cultural

Centre, provides an insight into the rich

Aboriginal history of the region, including

ancient rock paintings.

The Grampians abound with native wildlife,

especially on evening walks around Halls Gap.

There are also four waterfalls close by,

MacKenzie Falls the most spectacular,

especially after rain, when the roaring waters

mingle with rising mists from the valley floor.

The rural centre of Hamilton is one of the last

stops before the South Australian border. This is

wool country, some say the wool capital of

Australia, which explains all the sheep in the

paddocks around the town. Hamilton has an art

gallery, botanic gardens and lots of shops selling

woollen products and fashions.

Across the border, the visitor is quickly into

two of South Australia’s most famous wine

regions, the Coonawarra and Padthaway. The

Coonawarra is known as Australia’s “other red

centre”, its secret lying in a magical marriage of

red soils, limestone, pure underground water

and long cool ripening seasons. There is more

than 23 cellar doors from which to taste and

purchase some of the best red wines in the

country, luxurious and boutique accommodation

and great history in the townships of Penola and

Naracoorte.

Naracoorte World Heritage Fossil site has plenty

of options for discovering Australia’s ancient

Mammal’s through caving tours.

Nearby, the Padthaway and Mt Benson wine

regions complete a comprehensive array of

vintages, red and white. The Padthaway

Conservation Park, 1.5 kilometres east of the

tiny town that shares its name, has a wide range

of native trees and is home to the rare

long-billed Corella.

The small town of Penola is part of the story of

Sister Mary MacKillop, the woman set to

become Australia’s first saint. In 1866, Mary

MacKillop, a young teacher and Julian Tenison

Woods, a priest and scientist, founded the

Australian Sisters of St Joseph. At first they

provided a free Catholic education for isolated

bush children, but eventually for many young

people both in Australia and overseas.

> Top 10 Experiences

1. Sovereign Hill: One of the best theme

parks of its type in Australia, a faithful

recreation of a 19th Century gold mining

town. Attractions include the nightly sound

and light show.

2. Blood on the Southern Cross: The story

of the famous Eureka uprising which many

claim was the beginning of Australian

democracy, is retold every night at

Sovereign Hill.

3. The Eureka Centre: Built on the site of the

bloody fire fight between troopers and

miners, it has a complete record of all the

participants on the day – those who lived,

and those who died.

4. The Art Gallery of Ballarat: Regarded as

one of the best in regional Australia, with a

collection of colonial art as well as modern

pieces. The original Eureka Flag is also part

of the collection.


HIGHLIGHTS

> Sovereign Hill

> Brambuk National Park

> Coonawarra Wine Region

> Adelaide Hills

5. Gum San Chinese Heritage Centre:

Settlers from southern China came to

Australia to find gold.

6. Stawell Gift Hall of Fame: Every Easter,

Australia best professional athletes gather

in Stawell for the nation’s richest and

longest running foot race over 120 metres

at Central Park.

7. Brambuk – The National Park and

Cultural Centre: The Aboriginal people

have lived in the Grampians for more than

10,000 years, developing a rich culture that

is celebrated at Brambuk.

8. Fine art, fine gardens: The wealth

generated by wool allowed Hamilton the

luxury of a well appointed art gallery

showcasing some of the best colonial

artworks, as well as a botanic garden.

9. Sister Mary MacKillop: Her good deeds

that have taken her to the cusp of

becoming Australia’s first saint began in the

little South Australian town of Penola

where she helped established the

Australian Sisters of St Joseph.

10. The Red Centre: Coonawarra with itsrich

limestone soils has become synonymous

with high quality red wines. Another byproduct

of the limestone is an array of

caves, especially those near

Naracoorte that are World

Heritage Listed for their

ancient fossil discoveries.

The Naracoorte World

Heritage Fossil site is open daily.
