Bunnik Tours launches first-ever trip to Victoria

Following the success of its first five domestic itineraries, Bunnik Tours has added western Victoria to its portfolio.

The ‘Highlights of Western Victoria’ tour encompasses 13 days spent discovering the many gems this region has to offer, from its rich gold mining history to its breathtaking landscapes and world-famous coastline.

The tour commences in Melbourne, before venturing to Daylesford, a favourite escape for many Victorians’ looking to wind down. Here, guests will enjoy a wine tour and have some time to explore the town.

Stepping back in time, the tour visits the open-air museum of Sovereign Hill in Ballarat, where guests will have time to explore the many buildings and streets depicting what life was like back in the 1850s.

Next, the tour group will get to watch the grassy banks of the Murray River pass them by as they cruise on the PS Emmylou.

There’s also the chance to explore more of the local ecosystem with a visit to Barmah National Park, home to the world’s largest river red gum forest, with trees as old as 500 years.

Venturing south, the tour follows the Silo Art Trail viewing the amazingly decorated wheat silos before arriving in Halls Gap, the gateway to the scenic Grampians National Park.

En route to the world-famous Great Ocean Road, the tour will visit the Arboretum in Dunkeld, the Sir Reginald Ansett Transport Museum and the geological formation of Tower Hill.

Arriving in Warrnambool, guests will enjoy a delicious dinner at the renowned Pippies by the Bay restaurant, before spending three days discovering the many highlights this iconic stretch of road has to offer.

This time will see guests marvelling at the unique coastlines, discovering quaint country towns, delighting in delectable local produce, exploring rainforests and visiting the famous Bells Beach.

Before returning to Melbourne, it’s all aboard the Q Train from Drysdale to Queenscliff, where guests will be able to enjoy spectacular scenery over lunch.

Bunnik Tours has departures for its new western Victorian tour running from September 2021 through until April 2022, with all touring done in a full-sized coach. The land-only tour is priced from just $5,995 per person, twin share.
