Together, Longhorn YOUnique Tours and a range of local Indigenous groups will take you on a journey that lets you share the culture and knowledge that has existed for tens of thousands of years across central and western Victoria. Australia's Indigenous cultural history is recognised worldwide and Victoria contributes an amazing amount to that history.

As they travel through different areas you will be taken on a journey of learning by the descendants of the people that have inhabited these places since the creation time.

You will visit places such as, Narana Creations, Bells Beach, Great Ocean Road Memorial Arch, Cape Otway Light station, The 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge, Rainforest walk, Tower Hill, Tyrendarra, Gunditj Mirring, Gariwerd or the Grampians, Aboriginal rock art sites, Koalas, kangaroos and birds in their natural environment.

Overnight accommodation and all meals except for dinners are included in the tour.

Tour highlights:
  • 12 Apostles, Great Ocean Road
    The 12 Apostles are one of the most popular attractions along the Great Ocean Road. They are part of the Port Campbell National Park and located between Princetown and Peterbough. Whether seen from the air or land these rock stacks are truely an amazing site. These amazing rock stacks appear to rise out of the Southern Ocean. In fact they have been created from constant erosion of the limestone cliffs by the powerful action of the ocean's waves and blasting winds. Little by little caves are formed from the erosion and after many years of swirling action the caves eventually become arches which over time collapse leaving the rock stacks isolated from the shore. The power of the ocean and winds continues relentlessly so access near the 12 Apostles is now restricted. There are well set out paths and viewing platforms providing fantastic views along the coast in both directions.
  • Tower Hill
    A significant site of the Gunditj Mara people Tower Hill is a nature reserve which includes a natural history centre staffed by Indigenous workers. You can experience the amazing crater created more than 30,00 years ago, enjoy magnificent scenery, see Australian birds and animals in their natural habitat and learn about local Indigenous culture. The centre also sells a range of art and craft created by local Indigenous artists. Worn Gundidj
  • Heywood
    Near Heywood join a tour with Budj Bim and you will be amazed as you visit sites that housed whole communities of people, a people we thought to be nomadic. See how they used local stone to build fish traps and aquaculture systems to ensure an ongoing food supply. Visit the Lake Condah Mission where local Aboriginals were sent to keep them from their traditional lands and hear about the harshness of their life. Visit the site of Budj Bim (Mt Eccles) and learn of the creation time and how Budj Bim and the Gunditjmara people are related.
  • Grampians
    The Grampians are a rugged and ancient mountain range that appear to rise out of the surrounding plains. Also known as Gariwerd the area is steeped in Aboriginal history. With a wide range of wildlife and a stunning array of wildflowers, particularly in the spring, the area is very popular with holiday makers. You can travel to the Grampians from Melbourne via Halls Gap or Dunkeld both of which are around three hours travel time. Halls Gap is the larger town and provides the most direct access to the Grampians. It also has an extensive range of accommodation, restaurants and a range of other attractions.

Approaching the Grampians from this direction also provides some stunning views of the mountains.
