Finalizing my Melbourne itinerary

Jump to last reply

Thanks to Fodors, I've got my family's 8 day visit to Victoria in March pretty well laid out. sharing it below so anybody can give any tips, perspectives I may have missed. Car and accomodations have been booked!

Saturday Arrive in Melbourne at 7am. Pick up car rental. Get some rest and explore MB in the afternoon.

Sunday sovereign hill day trip

Monday Day 1 of Great Ocean Road drive. Overnight at Anglesea. Include Lorne visit and just circle back to Anglesea.

Tuesday Day 2 of GOR drive. Overnight at Port Campbell.

Wed Day 3 of GOR drive. Head back to MB via Colac

Thu Dandenong day trip. Including Puffing billy

Fri Melbourne

Sat Melbourne

Sun Fly out at 830am


Some queries :
1 - Somebody mentioned I should go straight to Sovereign hill on Day 3 of the GOR drive instead of heading straight to MB ? Does that make sense ?

2 - Any must "eat" in MB ? I know it's a food haven there with so many cuisines. Any local tips ?

Thanks

Eric
