Getting a coach tour on holiday is all about having some stress-free fun. You don’t need to plan, you don’t need to budget and you don’t need to drive. Let us at Melbourne on the Move take care of everything for you. We can offer you the ultimate in relaxing, luxury experiences, like our ‘No Worries Girls Day Out’, which includes a spa trip and champagne.
However, if sitting around all day is not your cup of tea, then don’t worry – coach trips are not just for sitting and looking. Melbourne on the Move also offers a range of day trips for the people who have energy to spare and enjoy hiking and winter sports. Read on to discover two of our top trips for active travellers:
Mount Buller Day Trip
This is probably the most sporty of our day tours, as it involves some real action on the slopes of Mount Buller. Here you can take in some brilliant downhill or cross-country skiing with a range of slopes to suit your abilities. You can even brush up your skill level by getting some lessons while you’re there. In fact, we can help you to arrange for both lessons and equipment hire, if needed. If you fancy something a little different, you could try snowboarding instead of skiing.
This tour will only run if there’s enough snow, so be sure to phone and check with us before you set out. We plan to go to Mount Buller through the snowy season, which is June until September, but the best months to go are July and August.
The Grampians Day Trip
Most people who come to visit Victoria do so because of the stunning natural scenery and unique wildlife. There’s plenty of both on this day trip, which takes you to the Grampians National Park. The park is famous worldwide for its ancient mountains, which are really breathtaking in scale. It offers over 167,000 hectares to explore, and this tour takes you to some of the highlights.
On the Grampians tour, we follow a walking trail round, focusing on locations with amazing views, like the Boroka and Reeds lookouts and the famous Jaws of Death. You’ll want to keep a sharp eye out for indigenous wildlife, such as kangaroos and wallabies. Later in the day, you will also get a chance to see one of the state’s largest waterfalls, MacKenzie Falls. The Grampians park is well known as a great place to spot birds, so the ornithologists among you may want to bring your binoculars! There is some hilly walking on this trip, but it wouldn’t be too taxing for most moderately active people.
If you would like to find out more about either of these trips, we would be happy to hear from you. Get in touch if you’d like to find out more about the walks and activities, or if you have any questions about active tours for customers with special mobility needs.
