Where to visit outside Melbourne for several days?

Jump to last reply

Tossing around ideas for our itinerary in March- yes, coming up fast. Fly in and out of Melbourne spending around 5 days there. (We've been before.) Fly to Tasmania, probably into Hobart and out of Launceston, spending around 4 days each; I see there's a bus in-between.

We could spend a few more days in Australia in addition to what I've mentioned, and wondered if there's a nice destination an hour or two outside Melbourne that can be reached by public transportation. (We considered Adelaide but don't want to add another flight. Have been to Sydney a few times.)

Any ideas would be appreciated! I see there's a similar post for staying outside Melbourne, but thought I'd post myself as it's the two of us, early 60s, no kids.
