  • 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.

    TLDR; Hide & Seek Delivered a Professional and Memorable Tour of Wilson Promontory National Park. Hide & Seek tour company provided exceptional service from start to finish. Upon arrival, Michael greeted us with a warm welcome and a cup of coffee, and provided us with a detailed itinerary for the day. The tour commenced with a hike to the Big Drift, followed by a stop for a quick bite to eat, and then a hike to the top of Mt Oberon. The day ended at Squeaky Beach, where we were treated to a little safari to see kangaroos, wombats, and emus. Michael, our knowledgeable guide and smooth driver, added to the experience. He shared his expertise on the environment and ensured we had a memorable time. The group size was small, with a maximum of eight people in a spacious van, which enhanced the overall experience. The only downside was that Michael was finishing up his last tour for a while, but we highly recommend Hide & Seek tour company for anyone visiting Wilson Promontory National Park. Overall, this tour deserves a 10/10 rating for their exceptional service, knowledgeable guide, and memorable experience.

    We were lucky to have had Lorinda as our guide on back-to-back tours to the Great Ocean Road and Phillips Island. The tours were well organized, comfortable, and a great value. Absolutely amazed at Lorinda’s ability to spot wildlife - we saw no fewer than 10 koalas.

Lorinda is the most amazing tour guide EVER - she brings so much knowledge to each experience, has an authentic love for Australian wildlife, fungi and fauna and is always up for an adventure. Incredible experience!!

    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 🤙

    I took part in 2 hike&seek tours over my long weekend in Melbourne (the “Great Ocean Road” and the “Grampians”). I absolutely loved the Great Ocean Road - Tour, even though the weather wasn’t great (cold, cloudy, rainy & even haze with just a little bit of sun here and there). Lunch (not included) was delicious and the place they take you to has a unique Charme. It was only 5 tourists (incl. me) and 2 guides on the tour & the vibe was amazing. I would recommend that tour 100%. I personally didn’t love the Grampians AS much. I had originally booked the Wilson’s Promontory - Tour, but it was cancelled the night before because the minimum number of bookings had not been reached. So, I was offered the Grampians-tour instead (or different dates which didn’t work for me). I already figured the tour wasn’t the perfect match for me based on the pictures and description of it (also because I was so hyped to go to Wilson’s promontory). This is completely subjective and has nothing to do with the organization of the tour. I just didn’t love the Grampians themselves (everything was a little too dark for my taste) and the food at the lunch-place. The guide was really great and the other tourists super nice tho. So, long story short, I would definitely go on tours with hike&seek again and recommend them highly to everyone.
