Day 1 You will be picked up at you Melbourne hotel at 7 am. We will travel south-west of Melbourne to the world famous Great Ocean Road. We will stop at various well-chosen sites along the way, each selected to maximise the number of species seen. As well as being wonderful for birding this area is one of the most scenic locations on earth. We will lunch at Lorne although we will still be birding as our bushland lunch location is also a wonderful opportunity to see bush birds. After lunch, we continue to Cape Otway and the internationally acclaimed Great Ocean Ecolodge. After setting in you will be led on an incredible walk around the property by one of the resident ecologists. You will also see wild kangaroos and koalas. Dinner will follow accompanied by local wine and beer.
Day 2 After a scrumptious breakfast we will head west and visit some great birding sites along the way. After visiting the iconic 12 Apostles we will head inland towards Melbourne stopping at a variety of habitats along the way including coastal heathland, wetlands, temperate rainforest and eucalyptus woodland. Birding will continue all the way back to Melbourne where you will be dropped off back to your hotel by 6 pm.
