3-Day Private Adelaide to Melbourne tour

Join this private tour for a relaxing, rewarding and stimulating journey full of scenic diversity. Birds eye views of cities, vast farmland, famous wine regions, extinct volcanoes, coastal icons, shipwrecks, rainforests and winding cliff top roads. Add to this some great food and wine and small group of like-minded travellers and you have a very memorable 3 days. The itinerary has been carefully planned so that you will take in many different experiences while keeping the schedule at a comfortable and relaxed pace. The first part of this tour through farmland on route to Naracoorte Caves and the Coonawarra wine region is less visually spectacular and is therefore done at a faster pace to allow more time on the Great Ocean Road.

I took our young son to Echo Farm recently. What a great place! Staff are very friendly & helpful. There are lots of different animals. They all look like they are in their element, especially the big gorgeous pig! There is plenty of food available that we could feed to the animals. There are some wooden carvings in one of the sheds & they are incredible. It’s a farm so it’s not the most pram friendly place I’ve been but I made it work. If you have a pram, I recommend going with a friend to help lift it over some of the cattle grids. Overall we had a great time & I look forward to returning when my son can walk.

Thank you for taking the time to review Echo Farm and for pointing out that there are a couple of cattle grids on the walk around the old style farm for future visitors. There are ways around them so we are very sorry we didn't show you an alternate route for your pram, but very glad you still enjoyed your visit. Hope to see you again soon.

We had a very nice time wandering around the farm petting the animals and getting to know the wonderful owners. They even recommended some amazing places to visit in the area which we never wouldve known existed. It made our stay in Mount Gambier all the more exciting! Can’t wait to come back some time!

Very child friendly farm We went the first day they reopened after Covid19 and unfortunately, the museum wasnt opened yet (due to Covid Restrictions). Nevertheless, the distance from Mt Gambier wasnt far. Around 10 minutes drive only. Bruce and his wife were very warm. My 2 year old son absolutely adored riding on the toy tractor and even had a go on the toy tricycles up at the 'tennis court.' He also enjoyed feeding the donkey with plenty of small ?oak twigs which the farm provided with more to refill if needed. There was also a working water pump which my son did find intriguing but staying there over 2 hours was likely a stretch too far as he was running around and enjoying himself with some of the animals. I would recommend this place for non farm/country visitors to Mt Gambier as we tried to pull over random stretches of fields to take pictures with cows and they arent as friendly (read: will run away). All the animals except the wallabies were very friendly and were a lot easier to pat and take photos with our toddler.
