See kangaroos and koalas on guided wildlife walks, enjoy organic dining from the kitchen gardens, learn about sustainability and explore the nearby beaches and rainforests. Combine the experience with a walking expedition through a remote island of Tasmania

Stay in a comfortable eco-lodge accommodation, enjoy fine dining and relax in peace, surrounded by Australian native forests and bushland.  Take in a journey along the most scenic Great Ocean Road accompanied by a guide on an exclusive tour.  Your guide will pick you up from your Melbourne hotel in the morning and show you the sights along the way. Settle in at the Ecolodge with afternoon tea and join an ecologist on a guided walk through beautiful bushland to observe the wild kangaroos, koalas, and birdlife which inhabit the region. This twilight nature walk is exclusive to the guests at the lodge.  

Share dinner specially prepared from the extensive kitchen gardens. Taste a selection of wines from the local region.  The following day, take a picnic lunch and spend time exploring the coastal walks or simply relax. Visit the Lighthouse for a guided tour or head out on a bushwalk to Blanket Bay. During low tide, follow the beach track near the lighthouse and look for rock pools.  On the final day, enjoy a scenic tour along the Great Ocean Road to see the famous Twelve Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge and London Bridge – ancient rock sculptures rising out of the wild Great Southern Ocean.

The Great Ocean Ecolodge is a social enterprise, established and operated by the Conservation Ecology Centre. All profits are invested into wildlife conservation and the Ecolodge itself is entirely solar powered and ecologically responsible, resting gently in the landscape.

Stay in the award-winning eco retreat, venture out into the bush with researchers to help save endangered species, explore the Great Ocean Walk, indulge in the region’s finest local produce or just relax in the dappled shade of the eucalyptus.
