LGBT+ Friendly 3 Day Tour The Grampians, Daylesford & Ballarat

VIC Rainbow Tours

Select Option


This is a private LGBT+ tour experience.

Visit some of Victoria lesser know, but equally as beautiful areas. From the 'Gay Capital' of Australia - Daylesford, discover some its hidden charms, colourful locals and diverse shops and restaurants.

The tour highlight is Grampians National Park. Whilst similar to that of the Blue Mountains in Sydney, this National Park is often wrongly overlooked. It requires slightly more effort to reach, but once there, you will be glad of the effort. We will kangaroo's in the wild, experience local Aboriginal custom and visit some incredible lookouts, walking tracks and waterfalls. You really will be at one, with Mother Nature.

En-route back to Melbourne on the final day, we will stop in at the historic town of Ballarat and visit some of its best loved visitor attractions.
