  • Overview

    Our small group (8 guests max) will depart Melbourne and head straight to the famous 12 Apostles before the masses of people arrive. Here we will take a 1km stroll along the boardwalk while appreciating the stunning views of the limestone stacks before continuing onto another spectacular scene, Gibson Steps. We walk down the 70m cliffside pathway to the beach where there is plenty of time to take some incredible photos. Next, it’s time for a delicious lunch at our favourite local cafe before we’ll drive through the magical Great Otway National Park and take a 3km hike through ancient rainforests to the dreamy Beauchamp Falls (where the big bus companies can’t go).

    At our next stop, we will take a stroll amongst the giants of the forest at the Californian Redwoods before continuing along the iconic Great Ocean Road stopping at Apollo Bay for optional ice cream. Kennett River is next where you’ll get the chance to spot native koalas, king parrots & kangaroos going about their routines. We will take a quick stop in the beautiful town of Lorne where you can walk along the beach or simply grab an afternoon snack before heading back to Melbourne.

    Had an absolutely great time out at the Grampians with Hike & Seek. Our tour guide Marcus was an absolute pleasure enthusiastic, friendly and informative. The small groups also give you a great opportunity to really get to know your fellow tourists. Recommend for anyone looking to get out on some amazing hikes without the stress of organising travel, snacks and company 🤙

    Had a great time with Shane and Hike and Seek on two of their tours - the Great Ocean Road and the Phillip Island tour. The hikes were relatively easy and we got to see everything we were there for, plus some extras - Shane went out of his way to make sure we saw all the wildlife we could (echidnas, roos, wallabies, penguins, kookaburra, etc). Appreciated the coffee and the snacks, too. The group size was also nice. Would recommend for anyone looking to explore these two areas!

    Highlight of our Melbourne trip, a day trip to Dandenongs with Michael a brilliant host/tour guide. Only disappointment was leaving our new friends at the end of the day. Highly recommended
