Trip Advisor Award Winner 5 Years Running

Welcome to one the most dramatically diverse nature experiences you are ever likely to encounter

Join us on our Great Ocean Road one and two day tours. The Great Ocean Road is truly one of the world’s most majestic touring routes – simply a ‘must see’ in your time in Melbourne.

Stretching over 300km, it offers a kaleidoscope of nature’s wonders where rugged surf beaches collide with towering ancient rainforests before yielding to the drama of the sheer limestone cliffs of the Port Campbell National Park – home to the awe-inspiring 12 Apostles – 20 million years in the making.


Phillip Island Tours

On Escape Discovery Adventures’ Melbourne Day Tours to Philip Island, embark on an adventure involving nature’s most fascinating creatures, including the largest local colony of little penguins.

Arriving at Phillip Island, which is just 90 minutes outside of Melbourne, the tour typically begins at the Phillip Island Nature Park, where you can hand-feed kangaroos, and enjoy close encounters with wallabies, emus, wombats and more. The day trip also encompasses excursions to the main township of Cowes, famed for its beautiful esplanade and foreshore; and the Nobbies coastal viewing centre, where you can observe the rocky home of Australia’s largest colony of fur seals.

Finally, as the sun begins to set, the delightful stars of Philip Island tours gear up for their famous daily ritual – the Penguin Parade. After a day of fishing, these endearing seabirds will return to shore. From a choice viewing spot on the beach, you will see the penguins emerge from the sea and waddle up the beach to their burrows. With rangers on hand to answer questions, this penguin island tour is one wildlife experience that should not be missed! Escape from the everyday. Discover something new. Embrace the adventure.
