★ A delicious boxed breakfast including hot rolls, pastries, fruit and drink will be provided on board as you travel aboard our luxurious air-conditioned motor coach from Adelaide.

Our journey today will take us along South Australia’s picturesque Limestone Coast, travelling along the Princes Highway past the coastal towns of Meningie, Kingston SE, Robe & Millicent on our way to the city of Mount Gambier.

This evening, enjoy a delicious welcome dinner at our hotel.

❱ 3 nights: Mount Gambier

Day 2: Mount Gambier’s Highlights, Blue Lake Aquifier Tour, Sunken Garden, Glenelg River Cruise & Port MacDonnell Lighthouse (BLAD)

★ After breakfast, we begin a city sights tour which will include a visit to the extinct volcano which contains a lake which has now become known as the iconic ‘Blue Lake’.

The lake changes from a dark steel grey colour to a brilliant turquoise in November for the entire summer.

★ After visiting the Visitor’s Centre, we visit the beautiful Sunken Garden of Mount Gambier.

Here, the Umpherston Sinkhole has to be seen to be believed! Appreciate the size & depth of this amazing sinkhole from the viewing platforms before enjoying a light lunch in the gardens.

★ We then travel to the wharf to board a delightful 2 hour cruise on the scenic Glenelg River which includes a devonshire afternoon tea.

During the cruise, enjoy the wonderful beauty of the untouched waterways through the wilderness.

★ After our cruise, we tour to Port MacDonnell on the coast.

This old crayfishing hamlet has a Maritime Museum featuring artifacts salvaged from the shipwrecks on the coast. The old lighthouse from the past still remains on the rocky shore. There may be time to visit the Old Hotel before we return back to our accommodation in Mount Gambier for dinner.

Day 3: The Portland Experience (BLD)

★ After breakfast, we board our coach for our tour to the beautiful historic town of Portland, Victoria.

We travel via the pretty township of Heywood before arriving in Portland – Victoria’s first town which was founded in 1834 by the pioneering Henry family. Portland is an attractive town with a deep water sea port which has made it a centre for sea goods transport for the surrounding areas.

★ We board the Portland Cable Tram for an entertaining journey along the foreshore.

The tram will take us past many of Portland’s attractions including the Botanic Gardens, Maritime Discovery Centre & the Whalers Bluff Lighthouse which served many ships along this wild & treacherous coastline.
