Southern Ocean Lodge

Days 4, 5 & 6

Unrivaled Panoramic views await...

On the edge of a secluded cliffside on Kangaroo Island sits the Southern Ocean Lodge, a luxurious lodge that offers breathtaking views of the Southern Ocean and surrounding wilderness. The Southern Ocean Lodge blends intimacy, comfort and style to create a lodging experience unlike any other found in Australia. Its contemporary environmental design, modern decor and unrivaled views speak for themselves and makes it no surprise why this incredible hotel continues to be voted one of the world's very best.

The 12 Apostles

Day 8

Along Great Ocean Road... the 12 Apostles await

Travel along Great Ocean Road as the 12 Apostles each begin to reveal themselves to you. Carved naturally from erosion over the last thousands of years, the 12 Apostles stand tall as the ocean waves churn and knock against them below. Their higher levels of calcium carbonate from animal skeletons and shells on the sea floor in their composition has helped them to stand the test of time and is what separates them from their surroundings. The sight of these momentous structures will leave you truly awestruck.

Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

Discover Bonorong and its many indigenous species.

To some of the animals, Tasmania is the only home they've ever known... to others, it is their last home on Earth. Enter Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, a place to help Tasmania's fragile wildlife and ecology, with a goal focused on giving back to the surrounding Tasmanian environment. Here, you have the opportunity to meet kangaroos, koalas, wombats, cockatoos, bettongs, the notorious Tasmanian Devils and much more, all while learning about the philosophy behind the sanctuary and the people who run it.
