Overnight Great Ocean Road

Jump to last reply

We have 2 days allotted for the GOR. Assuming we overnight at Apollo Bay and continue onward to Port Fairy, visit Ballerat/Sovereign Hill on our way back to Melbourne, do you think this is doable? What should we visit along the way aside from 12 Apostles, the Arch, and the Grotto, Otway Lighthouse, Gibson Steps.

On the way back, we plan to return the car and overnight in an aiport hotel as we have a 9am flight back home. So the itinerary looks like this:

Day 1 arrive Melbourne
Day 2 Melbourne City (any recommendation must visit)
Day 3 Pick up car and start GOR drive, overnight at Apollo Bay
Day 4 Drive to Port Fairy, Ballerat back to Melbourne Airport, drop car, overnight at airport hotel
Day 5 depart Melbourne

To complicate matters, I will be traveling with an infant of about 2 years old and the trip is scheduled for 1st week of September (winter). Any suggestion highly appreciated!
