If you are tight on time, the 12 Apostles is still a relatively easy one day trip from Melbourne. I read on Tripadvisor that for the best photographic opportunities you really need to be at the Apostles in the morning or late afternoon/evening. As we...More

Goin South Tours was just an awful awful experience, with the worst part being in Naracoorte. As an Australian, I felt so ashamed that such a tour can still exist in this country. My partner and I went on the tour from Adelaide to Melbourne...More

Such a majestic place and wonderful creation. We really enjoyed our whole trip there. A bit touristy but it’s all worth it. Definitely a must to visit.

Something all Australians should have on their bucket list. Amazing views of the coastline but be ready to be stuck in some traffic as most of it has no over taking.

Weather was a bit dodgy but the following day it cleared up. Car parks are great. Walk ways are great.

A perfect day trip from Melboure if you want to escape the city (however Melbourne is a fantastic city so no need to escape). Fabulous landscape and a historic road.

Day 1: Arrive in Melbourne 08:50, head to the CBD and stay the night in the city Day 2: Pick up rental car and set out for the GOR, stay 1 night at Port Campbell Day 3: Continue on GOR, stay the night at Warrnambool Day 4: Explore Port Fairy and head to Grampians in the afternoon for a short hike, stay the night at Halls Gap or Port Fairy? Day 5: Explore Grampians, stay the night at Halls Gap Day 6: Return to Melbourne (should we take the inland road or back on the GOR?) Days 7-9: Explore Melbourne Any recommendations on budget car rental companies would be appreciated as well :) Thank you!
