victoria in march

Jump to last reply

My family holiday to Victoria in March is starting to take shape. with my wife, and 2 kids (8 and 6), I''ve put together the following schedule and questions for those in the know to comment on!

Saturday, 6am We land in Melbourne Airport (overnight flight from Malaysia)

We pick up our rental and drive to Wilson's promontory (It's too early to check in anywhere so I thought it would be best to start doing our "out of city" exploration.

Sunday Stay at the Prom

Monday Drive out of the Prom. And begin drive to Great Ocean Road. I'm still trying to figure out how to bypass Melbourne ; and cross thru a quicker way (bridge?ferry?) from Wilson prom to GRO. (I just seems there might be a way to cross the waters looking at the map). Overnight at in one of the towns..Lorne ?

Tuesday Continue drive to Port Campbell, Visit 12 Apostles and nearby sights. Overnight in the area. Port Camp bell ?

Wednesday Drive back to Melbourne. Take a quicker inland route, if any. Back in Melbourne by the evening. Start Melbourne stay. Return car rental

Thursday / Friday / Saturday - Explore Melburne

Saturday 8pm Fly out of Melbourne

Some questions :
1. Is there a way to get to GRO from Wilson Prom without having to drive all the way up to Melbourne ?
2. If we stay 2 nights at the GRO, which places/towns should we stay for the night ?
3. Is there a quicker inland route from 12 apostles back to Melbourne ?
4. Any quirky, unique, things to see and experience in M'bourne that are not part of the "usual" city tours ?

THanks !
