What people are saying about Grampians National Park

A wonderful experience. The Great Ocean Road offers absolutely stunning views as you drive past some pretty seaside towns. There was plenty of time for stops for photos, walks, food and drinks etc. The bus was quite cramped, not much leg room. Laid back and friendly drivers and fellow travellers from around the world added to the experience. Good catering along the way.

Super nice guide, really fun tour, got to see lots of fantastical Australian wildlife up close in nature and beautiful countryside, with a really easy way to do it on a short bus with small group of other travelers. Beaches to Hall's Pass, 350 people, 35,000 kangaroos, recommend!
