Check out the immersive itinerary we have lined up for you!

London Bridge, Portsea

The rival of the iconic 12 Apostles - a magnificent stack of limestones, the London Bridge upon the beautiful Portsea Beach is an equal legend itself. The breathtaking sandstone formation looks like a large amphitheatre sitting in the lap of the ocean, almost resembling the London Bridge over the Thames. With unparalleled vantage points and a magical beach, this is a must visit for anyone and everyone.

Cruise Along the Bay with Lunch On-Board

Sit back and savour a delicious lunch on-board our 2-hour long Searoad Ferry cruise, sailing along Port Phillip Bay, while relishing some awe-inspiring views of the coastline. Keep your eyes open for a chance to spot some cute dolphins and posh cliff top mansions.  

St Andrews Beach Brewery

Before embarking on the final section of our sojourn, we will head to this craft brewery with a refreshing outdoor beer garden that is quite the local favourite. A staunch believer of everything ‘simple and uncomplicated’, they are known for some truly fresh and clean Aussie brews. Joining the locals, we’ll sample one of their tasting paddles while witnessing the simplicity of life on a farm.

Arthurs Seat Eagle

Treating you to an insane adrenaline rush, the Arthurs Seat Eagle comprises a state-of-the-art gondola that has become hugely popular across people of all ages. Hop on-board to marvel at sensational views, stretching all the way from the bay to the bustling city,  as well as a chance to spot some native wildlife while gliding high above the trees.

Peninsula Bathing Boxes

Throwing it right back with some vintage vibes, we’ll take a walk along the Port Phillip Bay, dotted with vivaciously coloured bathing boxes. Synonymous with summers, these iconic boxes are a treat to watch against the backdrop of the turquoise waters, besides being a winning background for Instagram-worthy shots!
