Day 7

| Gold Coast

Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has been conserving native wildlife and nurturing the local indigenous heritage for over 70 years. This regional treasure has also been educating and entertaining families and tourists from all across the globe. So naturally, the animal attraction is at the heart of Gold Coast history. You’d be hard pressed to find a local who hasn’t experienced the renowned wild rainbow lorikeet feeding. But over the decades, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary has, more importantly, served as a haven to a myriad of native Australian animals — big, small, flourishing and endangered. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, officially renamed in 1995, is now a heritage-listed zoological garden set across 27 hectares of natural eucalyptus-rich bushland and rainforest. The park was deemed to be of great importance to the evolution of the state’s history, and was subsequently added to the Queensland Heritage Register in 2009. Today, the Sanctuary is home to native mammals, reptiles, birdlife and amphibians as well as some exotic species. Strong support from locals and the emergence of ecotourism has allowed the Sanctuary to thrive since its inception. The educational public park continues to provide vital breeding and conservation programs, and lorikeets still flock to the arena twice daily to be fed by the equally delighted visitors.

Day 8

| Gold Coast

Warner Bros. Movie World is a 16.8 hectare film studio theme park on the Gold Coast, Queensland, and Australia. Owned and operated by Village Roadshow's Theme Parks division, the park opened on 3 June 1991. The park's site is part of a entertainment precinct, with the adjacent Village Roadshow Studios film studio and nearby Wet'n'Wild Gold Coast water park, among other properties all operated by Village Roadshow. The park contains movie-themed rides, attractions and shows. Various costumed characters regularly patrol the park to interact and take photos with guests. Each afternoon, characters participate in a parade along the park's Main Street. The park hosts several seasonal events annually, such as the Halloween-themed Fright Nights and Christmas-themed White Christmas. DC Rivals Hyper Coaster, opened in 2017, is the most recent among the park's six operating roller coasters.

Join your small group eco-tour for the spectacular journey along the Great Ocean Road – one of Australia’s greatest coastal drives. As your tour travels along Victoria’s Surf Coast you’ll visit pristine beaches and enjoy unrivalled views which reveal themselves as we follow the coastal road around each bend. Venture off the Great Ocean Road and into the Great Otway National Park to spot wild koalas sleeping or perhaps eating in their eucalyptus homes, before continuing along the Surf Coast to our lunch stop in Apollo Bay. After lunch we follow the road through the Otway Ranges and stop to explore the cool temperate rainforest of the Great Otway National Park. Wander amongst the tree ferns and wonder at the towering Mountain Ash trees, the tallest flowering species in the world. Emerging from the Otway Ranges we arrive at the Shipwreck Coast with its indented coastline and its amazing array of limestone formations, including of course the world famous 12 Apostles. Stroll the boardwalks here and take in the awesome scenery before moving on to the heart of the Shipwreck Coast, the spectacular Loch Ard Gorge, where 52 souls perished and only two teenagers survived the wreck of the Loch Ard in 1878. Visit the beach here to re-live the amazing story of survival before descending to the each once more at Gibsons Steps. Here you will appreciate the sheer scale of the limestone cliffs as well as the offshore rock stacks.

Day 11

| Melbourne

After breakfast we proceed (on own) to Melbourne Cricket Ground. The largest stadium in the Southern Hemisphere and one of the most famous sporting venues in Australia, Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is more than a Melbourne landmark. The legendary stadium has hosted the Olympic Games, the Commonwealth Games, the annual Boxing Day Test Match, and Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final. Meet your tour guide at the Gate 3 entrance to the Melbourne Cricket Grounds. Embark on your tour, which includes behind-the-scenes access to some parts of the stadium that the general public doesn't get to see. Stop by the cricketers' viewing room, the player changing rooms, and the MCC Long Room. Stop by the MCC Library, dating from 1873, and get a chance to walk on the grass inside the arena. Snap photos of the Melbourne city skyline from the City Terrace. Please note: Some areas on the tour are subject to availability. At the island you’ll visit Seal Rocks and the Nobbies Centre to take a walk along the boardwalk and soak in the stunning views back towards the Mornington Peninsula from Phillip Island’s most western point. Just before sunset we head over to the Penguin Parade to take our spots at the beach, ready to see the hundreds of Little Penguins as they make their way across the sand and return to their burrows in the sand dunes. See them reunited with their partners, where they give each other a little kiss, do a dance, then waddle up and into their burrows. An unforgettable afternoon – check.
