Australia Adventure – Coastal Walks, Wine and Wildlife
Book or Inquire
Tasmania and Twelve Apostles Luxury Lodge-Based Hiking

Australia boasts more than 16,000 miles of coastline and this 15-day active adventure takes you along some of the country’s most stunning stretches in Tasmania and Victoria! The centerpieces of the tour are two of Australia’s Great Walks: the Freycinet Experience Walk and the Twelve Apostles Walk. Both treks take you past soft white sand beaches, undulating cliff sides, and native plants and wildlife. If splashing in the aqua waters and resting in luxurious trekking lodges isn’t enough of a reward for your efforts, soaring in a helicopter over the limestone monoliths known as the Twelve Apostles is sure to keep your feet moving!

In between the treks you’ll get a healthy dose of relaxation, Australian culture, and multi-sport activities to keep you invigorated. Search for seals and dolphins in the waters of the Tasman Peninsula, harvest oysters fresh from the sea, bike through Melbourne’s hip corridors, and indulge in spa treatments and gourmet dinners at the tranquil Lake House.

From $10,419 per person based on two people sharing accommodations for travel through Nov 30, 2017.

When you arrive at Wineglass Bay late in the afternoon, it’s the perfect time for a swim in the bay’s crystalline waters.

Day 10 – Embark on the Twelve Apostles Walk

Transfer by private vehicle to Castle Cove where you will meet your local hiking guide and fellow walkers to commence your Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk.

Leaving the Great Ocean Road behind us, we start hiking among tea-trees with cliff-top ocean vistas before entering an enchanting grass tree forest. Soon after, drop down onto Johanna Beach for about a mile of beach walking with the ocean only steps away. The soft sand offers a great opportunity to take off your boots and feel the sand under your feet. Just don’t turn your back to the unpredictable waves! After walking the beach, you’ll cross the Johanna River and choose whether to take the easy 1.8 mile stroll back to the lodge or have your guide call for road support to come and get you!

Total walking distance is about 3.7 miles.

The following three nights are spent at the trekking lodge on Johanna Beach, staying in eco-luxe villas with ensuite bathrooms, flushing toilets, fresh linen and hot showers. Enjoy a fine dinner with fellow guests and relax to the sound of waves crashing in the distance.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner – Trekking Lodge on Johanna Beach

 

Day 11 – Twelve Apostles Walk

Great Ocean Walk Fern ForestDay two is your hardest day out on track, but it offers spectacular seascapes and covers some of the most remote parts of the Twelve Apostles Walk. The challenge delivers great rewards and the wild, weathered headlands give you a sense that you’re at the world’s edge.

The ocean is your steadfast companion across the 7.7 miles of rolling terrain, beginning with a descent to Milanesia Beach. Here, your guide will point out a ‘natural rock wall’ that would be the envy of any budding climber. After a fleeting beach visit, it’s a short but bracing climb that whispers of inclines to come. Over the next hours, your trail carves its way through deep gullies with tree ferns and towering remnant Eucalyptus. There’s 132 steps to ascend before trailing west out of the forest to Ryan’s Den. On suitable days, this is your lunch perch. The Den gifts with unsurpassed views across to Cape Volney and Cape Otway.

Further along the trail, as it follows the tumbles and rises of the coastline, keep an eye out for Cape Volney. There’s a bench that, if time allowed, could swallow hours. Heaving seas disappear into watery caves. Views west travel to the horizon’s edge. And the entire spectacle is framed by the forest.

ENDURANCE OPTION (additional 5 miles): Begin bright and early on Johanna Beach. Keep an eye out for kangaroos as you traverse rolling hills, including a country lane that rises to the Twelve Apostles Walk’s highest point. The endurance option is for those who have done additional training.

Hiking distance varies from 8 to nearly 13 miles depending on your choice of options

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner – Trekking Lodge on Johanna Beach

 

Day 12 – Twelve Apostles Walk

Shipwrecks, sandy pathways, exposed heathland, and maybe even your first glimpse of the Apostles mark this day of hiking. Start at The Gables Lookout, one of Australia’s highest cliff-top vistas. After the challenging ups and downs of yesterday, this day is more pleasant and mild.

More than 300 ships have come to grief on this stretch of coastline. Your first stop is the aptly named Wreck Beach, a suitable reminder of the early ocean voyages across these treacherous waters. If conditions allow, you’ll drop down to Wreck Beach and hear tales of pillaging and misfortune, including a ship which traveled from China only to sink with its cargo of tea and tint the ocean. Depending on the tides, an alternate route leads through to Devils Kitchen, home to arguably Australia’s best lavatory vista!

Following lunch, notice how the geology begins to change from sandstone to limestone. Thick Eucalypti forest gives way to sections of moonscape, indicators of what’s in store. Keep an eye out for native rosemary, cushion plants, and wild flowers in season. Your first glimpse of the Gellibrand River marks the entrance to Port Campbell National Park. This freshwater river near the sleepy hamlet of Princetown is an easy downhill stroll. After some 8 miles, reward yourself with a cooling river dip.

ENDURANCE OPTION (3 miles): Set off early, gently winding through native stringy bark forest before meeting the others at The Gables Lookout. Alternately, relax on the bus and explore an early 1900s cemetery at Moonlight Head.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner – Trekking Lodge on Johanna Beach

 

Day 13 – Twelve Apostles Walk to the Lake House 

12 Apostles Lodge Walk - Scenic flightEnjoy your final morning at the Walking Lodge. After another tasty breakfast, there’s a final pack-up, check-out and lodge farewell as we again head west to Princetown. As you follow the trail along the coastline, The Twelve Apostles will emerge in the distance in a slow reveal. Also keep your eye out of the two resident mobs of kangaroos in the area! Stop at the viewpoint reserved exclusively for walkers before the final stretch of trail into the 12 Apostles Visitors Center. You’ve made it!

Now take to the skies with a stunning ten minute 12 Apostles Scenic Helicopter Flight for an unparalleled view of this amazing coast. Move on to the nearby town of Port Campbell for lunch before transferring by private vehicle to Daylesford for your two night stay at the Lake House.

Lake House is a boutique hotel set on six acres of manicured waterfront gardens. The property exudes a sophisticated atmosphere with a slightly bohemian undercurrent. Lake House boasts one of Australia’s top restaurants, the menu offers modern Australian cuisine paying homage to the region’s excellent seasonal produce. The Salus Day Spa is an oasis of tranquility and offers guests an indulgent way to take to the waters with all manner of hydrotherapy on offer. Two tree house cabins overlooking lake Daylesford include hot mineral water tubs perfect for a pre pamper soak.

Breakfast

Henry Jones Art Hotel

Contemporary art meets the historic Hobart waterfront in this stylishly renovated old jam factory. Billed as Australia’s first dedicated art hotel, original works are found in both its public spaces and guest rooms. The designer’s eye is not limited to the objects on the wall either – the hotel’s distinct style is embodied in everything from its furniture to the building’s original windows.

Saffire Freycinet

Saffire Freycinet TasmaniaSaffire’s 20 luxurious suites wind along the East Tasmanian coastline, peering out at the Hazards Mountains and Great Ocean Bay. Designed for privacy and relaxation, each suite features a living room and a deck to unwind among the ocean air. And if the coastal scenery isn’t enough to lull you into a blissful state, a silken body cocoon or massage at the spa should do the trick. When (if?) you’re ready for something more active, experiences from the Lodge include quad and mountain bike excursions, trips out to the oyster and mussel beds of the Freycinet Marine Farm, and gourmet picnics in the untouched coastal wilderness.

Ovolo Laneways

Bursts of color add contrast to the sleek rooms of Ovolo Laneways, mimicking the graffiti-covered alleyways that inspire the hotel’s name. Trendy, and a little funky, Ovolo is full of touches to make your stay just a little smoother, like a free in-room bar to prepare you for a night out in vibrant Melbourne or to help you recover the next morning. A central location means you’re never far from the action and super-speed wifi will keep your Facebook feed filled with shots of street art from your city wanderings.

Lake House

Lake House Daylesford View across LakeLake House is a peaceful escape at the foot of misty Lake Daylesford. Located in the heart of Victoria’s spa country, the Hotel’s Salus Spa takes full advantage of the area’s plentiful mineral springs and expert wellness professionals. A trip to the award-winning on-site restaurant will leave you in an equally soothing state, especially after a carefully-sourced tasting menu that may include Bass Strait scallops, Sher Wagyu beef or soft pasta pillows of herbed spring ricotta. When you’ve made your way through the extensive wine list, plush king beds are ready to welcome you to a restful slumber.
