Melbourne, Adelaide, Tasmania in which order?

Jump to last reply

We are planning a 3 week trip to Australia: Melbourne and area, Adelaide and area and Tasmania -- one week in each location.
We originally thought of starting in Melbourne, spending 2-3 days in the city, driving to Yarra Valley, taking the GOR from Geelong to Port Fairy and loop back to Melbourne - then fly to Adelaide and explore the city and environs incl Barrossa Valley and one night on KI then back to Adelaide. Then fly to Hobart.
But I discovered that it is quite easy to drive from Melbourne to Adelaide so we are considering it. Con: car drop off fee, no direct flights from Adelaide to Hobart.
OR start in Adelaide, tour around, do KI and drive to Melbourne via GOR pro: may be able to find a car relocation offer since it seems that most people drive east to west on the GOR the advantage being that you drive on the more scenic side of the road. Also direct flights from Melbourne to Hobart.
Also, any suggestions on breaking up the stay in Tasmania - is it a good idea to have 4 days in Hobart and 3 days in Launceston?
