So you think you’ve done Victoria? It’s a lot more than just lattes, laneways, Apostles and penguins. This is a region we know better than anyone and this is exactly how we’d spend a few days here if we could.

Start with degustation dining in Mornington, an hour out of Melbourne. Meet a few local growers and winemakers behind the cellar doors. Spend the night (or two) in a ‘Lair’ at the one and only Jackalope. When you’re good and ready, head across Port Phillip Bay on a private helicopter and follow the insanely spectacular coast all the way to the Apostles. Meet a local naturalist guide for a private tour and a set of keys to your dream car, perhaps a Ferrari or Lambo. From here, self-drive the Great Ocean Road with a tailored and detailed, step-by-step itinerary full of local secrets and hidden treasures and none of the remedial stuff. Stop for a catered, picnic lunch alone in the rainforest and either finish back in Melbourne or spend a night in one of our favourite luxury-lodge-style guest-houses.
