Traveling the Great Ocean Road

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip to the Land Down Under in March, 2013. Before flying from Melbourne to Tasmania for 11 nights, we plan on spending 7 nights in and around Melbourne (2 in Melbourne where we've been 3 times previously). My question is are we allotting too much time for the GOR?

Currently we plan on spending 2 nts in Apollo Bay (visiting places like Geelong, Bells Beach, Torquay, Aireys Inlet, Erksine Falls, Lorne, Cape Otway, etc). After leaving this area, 2 nts are planned for Port Fairy to allow us to see places such as Port Campbell, Twelve Apostles, Peterborough, Warrnambool).

Before returning to Melbourne, we'll head up north to the Grampians and spend one night in either Hall's Gap or Ballarat, depending on accommodations. Is this too much time? If so, where can we shorten? Thanks
