Melbourne Victoria Surrounds Itinerary Help Needed. Thanks!

Jump to last reply

Hello!

We'r planning a trip to Melbourne and Sydney in June 2012. We are a 20 plus couple from Singapore... would be great if you can advise if the below itinerary is doable :)


20 June
Day 1: Arrive in Melbourne at 7am. Visit Melbourne City.

21 June
Day 2: Collect rental car and head on to Puffing Billy for the 12:30 train, drive back to Yarra Valley / Healsville to stay for the night. Visit attractions near Puffing Billy like the Williams Rikett Sanctuary.

Stay for the night in Hill n Dale


22 June
Day 3: Explore Yarra Valley, Healsville and surrounds.
Stay for the night in Hill n Dale, Yarra Valley.

23 June
Day 4:
From Yarra Valley, drive down to Cowes for Philip Island (Chocolate Factory, Churchill Heritage Farm and penguins)
Stay the night in Philip Island

24 June
Day 5:
Drive from Philip Island to Mornington Peninsular
Ashcombe Maze, Moonlit Sanctuary... what are the other "must see sights" in Mornington?
Head back to Melbourne City to stay the night
*I have decided not to go via the Car Ferry as I heard this this might be a little tricky for rental cars? I'm also worried about rough waters if we go by this route....what do you think?

25 June
Day 6:
Drive from Mornington to Melbourne City direct to GOR via Geelong??
Visit Otway Lighthouse, Otway Fly Treetop Walk. Stay the night at Apollo Bay.

26 June
Day 7:
Lord Ard Gorge, 12 Apostles
Drive onwards to Warrnambool to Ballarat. Stay the night at Ballarat.
(**Is this doable? Or should we skip Ballarat for this trip and spend more time in Melbourne City?)

27 June
Day 8:
Explore Ballarat
Drive from Ballarat back to Melbourne City.
Stay the night in Melbourne City.

28 June
Day 9:
Explore Melbourne City

29 June:
Early flight from Melbourne to Sydney.

With the schedule, I will only be left with 4 nights in Sydney. Is 4 nights enough for Sydney... or should I skip Ballarat and spend one more night in Sydney..probably in the Blue Mountains...


Is this itinerary allowing enough time for the GOR? What other sights have I left out? Once again, thank you for taking the time to read
