12 Apostles, Otways & Great Ocean Road
Want to explore the Great Ocean Road in style with a local Aussie guide? Our premium (but humble) small group experience is made for you :) @hikeandseektours we like to keep it small, so join the group of 8 other awesome travellers for this memorable day adventure. With coffees in our hands we’ll depart Melbourne and head straight to the famous 12 Apostles before the masses of people arrive. We promise you’ll never forget this view! After the Apostles and Gibson Steps, it's time for a delicious lunch at our favourite local cafe before driving through the Great Otway National Park. Here we’ll take an easy-moderate 3km hike through an ancient rainforest to the dreamy Beauchamp Falls (Psst! The big bus companies can't make it here). Always wanted to see humongous trees? On our next stop we will take a stroll amongst the ‘Giants of the forest’. Photos won’t do any justice of this place, so you *have to* experience it yourself. From there we’ll cruise along the iconic Great Ocean Road stopping at Apollo Bay for an optional award-winning gelato. Say G’day to some wild koalas, drop bears, king parrots & kangaroos at Kennett River and walk or swim at the beach in the surftown Lorne - or simply grab a snack before heading back to Melbourne. It is a long way but once in a lifetime roadtrip! Other things to note Grade 2: No bushwalking experience required. The track is a hardened or compacted surface. There is driving involved on this experience but the views are definitely worth it and our van is very comfy.
Wine,Music,Cheese,Ciders (Yarra Valley)
We'll pick you up in the morning and mainly focus on everyone getting to know each other. We get everyone to add to a Spotify playlist so we have some tunes and spend the first hour just chatting! On my trip we will go to 4 or 5 places, each consisting of 6-7 tastings. I have a bunch of wineries that I know you'll love and will go to them if no-one is too picky, however I make sure I listen to the group. My trip is a little democracy. Everything we do on my trip is discussed by the group in the morning. I will give you options to choose from lots of different wineries, cheese factories and chocolate factories, Cider houses, distilleries and breweries. We WILL go to 4 of these places, maybe 5 if we have time for it. Though I put an emphasis on personalizing the day, if you just want to come along and put your trust in me, we will visit 4 four unique venues, all with a point of difference, with one of them being a restaurant where you can order and pay your own way. I’d allow 20-30$ for lunch. Expect pizzas, steaks, seafood,burgers and salads. Really new and awesome restaurant called ‘Quarters’ that’s on St Huberts Estate. Generally this is the day 11am Helen and Joeys Estate wine tasting (sometimes kangaroos here) 12pm Yering Farm wine and cider tasting 1pm St Huberts Estate for lunch 2:45 Four Pillars Gin 3:45 Chocolate tasting 4:15 Depart Will be back by 5:15pm :)
Grow Organic Fruit & Veggies, Milk Goats
We'll first tour the organic mini-farm and focus on its unique features - how the garden and animals are organised and integrated using permaculture thinking. We'll talk about how chooks, goats and pigs can all be used for various purposes on a self-sufficient property, and how to grow a wide variety of organic veggie, berry and fruit crops. Then we'll get hands-on with seed sowing, planting and soil cultivation. You'll learn great techniques to grow organic veggies, berries and fruits - how to make compost and enrich your soil organically, how to cultivate and weed efficiently, how to time your plantings, and how to raise plants from seed to advanced seedlings before planting to make the most of your garden space. We'll finish by learning how to milk a goat, which is a fun thing to try and also a handy skill if you're considering becoming more self-sufficient one day. Lunch is provided as part of the workshop, which you can eat in at our cafe Home Grown on Piper cafe in Kyneton, which features healthy, tasty dishes made with organic, ethical produce from our farm and other local producers. You can pick and purchase some organic produce, seeds or seedlings for your garden at the end of the workshop. The aim is to inspire you in your own garden, so you'll feel confident to take the seeds or seedlings home and grow them successfully yourself!

Walking with Alpacas
I would like to explain how I have priced the experience regarding children. Ages 3-5 are free, but if the child wishes to help lead an alpaca, I can put a second lead on an alpaca being led by an adult. Ages 5-12 (13,14) are $20 and the child shares an alpaca with an adult. The 13-14 year old, you have to decide whether your child feels confident enough to lead an alpaca on their own, for an hour or so. My alpacas are well-trained and quiet. Please ring me on 0427 201192 if you have any queries. After you come in the gate, turn right and park opposite the orchard. Then walk up to the barn. When everyone has arrived I will bring out your alpaca on a halter and lead, ready to walk. When everyone has their alpaca, we will set forth. Before we set off, you’ll have the opportunity to ask any burning questions, but of course you can ask questions at any time. We’ll walk the Alpacas around the farm which usually takes about an hour. After the walk, if you’d like, you can see the free ranging chickens in the orchard and check out our permaculture vegetable garden. If the dates or times open for an experience do not suit you please contact brigitte through contact host page and I will arrange for you to come at a time of your choice.
Coffee, Pastry & Local Design
Rise and shine with your choice of a toasty batch brew coffee or tea at a specialty coffee shop situated in the heart of my local neighbourhood. We'll get a small taste of Queen Victoria Market and visit a local fashion and homeware store where you will meet the talented sibling duo behind the brand. We'll wander our way to the CBD via the sights, sounds and smells of the marketplace, take some interesting photos and chat to friendly vendors. Next we'll do like the locals do and grab a snack in a hidden laneway. Here we'll share a selection of gorgeous pastries from a Japanese inspired bakery to take on the go before hopping on a tram to Collingwood - a suburb bursting with vintage shopping, street art and creative enterprise. Step into an evolving artists’ playground where you will visit a talented local ceramicist and socially conscious clothing store. The tour will conclude at a hole in the wall artisan bakery, just off the most recently voted 'world's coolest street', where I would be more than happy to offer advice and exclusive recommendations to plan the rest of your trip!

Go on a nighttime grazing tour of Melbourne's city eats
As a tour guide, we’re so used to giving tours during the daytime, just a little shift into the evening makes for an entirely different vibe. It’s a really fun context from which to give a walking tour. The city takes on a different character at night — shadowy alleyways, raucous bars, and excited theatre-goers. It’s with this backdrop that we'll explore a city coming to life. We'll spend 3 hours ducking and weaving through the crowds as we find ourselves in three unique holes-in-the-wall from a cheeky standing bite. This is not your typical, sit-down-and-wait-an-hour-for-your-food walking tour. No, this experience will have you pushing crowds aside to find that perfect greasy pizza joint in the back of a dive bar, having your guide help you translate the mandarin menu from a dumping house, and exploring a restaurant that seems juuust on this side of the health code.

Want to experience something different?….really different. Learn about the intriguing world of honey bees in a way that few get to experience: through the hands­-on exploration of an active, living beehive! Your tour, led by Nathan Stewart, a professional Doreen based beekeeper, will include suiting up in protective gear, lighting a bee smoker, and spending two hours as real-life Beekeeper. Initially, Nathan will give you some tips on what to look for inside a hive including how to spot the Queen and where to look to potentially witness the birth of a new worker bee. Then, together we’ll lift the lid of a busy hive, watch bees at work creating honey, pull out a frame of honey ready for extraction, and get up close with more than 100,000 bees! After we carefully close the lid, we’ll sample some of the honey direct from the hives while enjoying a refreshing honey tonic compliments of Karen, Managing Director of Rivers of Yarrambat (who is also a passionate beekeeper herself).

Avoid wearing dark colour clothing, perfume or aftershave. -Photos of your experience will be sent afterwards. -Weather: On rare occasions, our Tours may need to be postponed, rescheduled or cancelled due to severe weather.
