What to Expect
Suggested but highly flexible itinerary:

Be met at your hotel by your expert Localing host for an 8 am start. The drive out from Melbourne is a great chance to share some of your tastes and interests so these can be made a feature of your uniquely tailored experience.

Sit back and get to know your host in a luxury touring vehicle equipped with wi-fi, water and a selection of Victorian treats.

Stop by an Aboriginal centre for a gourmet morning tea with an Aussie flavour. Hear didgeridoo, learn to throw a boomerang and check out indigenous art from around the country.                                  

Admire world class surfers in Torquay, the home of Rip Curl and the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach.

Be consumed by the scents and sounds of native eucalyptus forests. Learn about the 700 different varieties of gumtree, about wallabies, carnivorous snails and early explorers.

Enjoy a cafe style lunch in the backstreets of Apollo Bay, away from the tourist droves, or try something more elegant at a seaside seafood restaurant (we don't include lunch so you are free to choose based on your tastes and pay at the cost price).

Feed wild parrots, spot koalas high in the treetops and search out a mob of local kangaroos.

Take a guided walk at the Apostles and hear the stories which have granted the ‘Shipwreck Coast’ its perilous title.

Break up the journey home with a stop for afternoon tea and some delicious Aussie treats (or skip the whole thing entirely and return on a spectacular scenic charter flight).

Your host will have you back in Melbourne around 7 pm (start and finish times can be varied to suit your needs).

Caroline was very knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. She showed us many koala bears in the wild, exotic birds, kangaroos and wonderful scenery. She catered the tour to our interests and not a preset format. We would use her and recommend her...More

Martin, our guide, picked up on our slightest hints about what we wanted to do and see. We saw Koalas, fed cockatoos and parrots and happened to luck into a seafood festival in one of the small towns. We walked on small quiet beaches and...More
