Scenic has launched its 2017/2018 Australia program which includes a new itinerary to Victoria plus new Freechoice activities, Enrich experiences and hotels.
The new 11 Day Victorian Discovery marks Scenic’s 30th anniversary which is being celebrated this year, and pays homage to the very first coach tour Scenic offered when it began operating in 1986. A round trip from Melbourne, the journey then heads south along the iconic surf coast via Geelong, Lorne and onto the Great Ocean Road – home to the Twelve Apostles – and Warrnambool. Then heading inland via the rugged landscape of the Grampians mountain range to the spa town of Daylesford and artistic Bendigo.
Liz Crowley, Journey Designer Australia and New Zealand, commented: “We wanted to create a special commemorative tour to mark the milestone of our 30th anniversary and a journey along the Great Ocean Road is the perfect addition to our Australia program. We are delighted to have further extended our domestic offering particularly as more and more guests are staying local and wanting to explore Australia.”
The 2017/2018 program also sees the launch of a new Enrich experience in Tasmania – a guided tour of the Convict town of Ross. New Freechoice activities include a walking tour of Perth and there are also two new hotels – Norfolk Island guests will now stay at the South Pacific Resort, and in Western Australia guests will enjoy a two night Scenic Special Stay at Pullman Bunker Bay.
