Don't forget you will have to find somewhere secure to park the car in Melbourne which will not be cheap. Your hotel might offer car parking. We've stayed twice at City Tempo apartments which have a small kitchenette. It's also five min walk to Vic Market (mentioned above). They only have studios or one bedrooms but there is a link on the home page to 2-3 bedroom places. Also if you are after something with a kitchen, you can look at Citadines and Punthill Apartments. For hotels, I would check Trip Advisor or Booking.com. Look for something in the central city area (Bourke St mall is the middle of the shopping area if that helps).

Hi everyone, after some consideration, I adjusted the plan by reversing the route. What you guys think? Should I spent 1 more night in Gor ? or another town ( any town to recommend : ) )? 4 nights in Melbourne will it be too much? The reason I putting Melbourne at the end ,maybe I can return the rental car in town and use the public transport for the last 2 or 3 days? That will definitely save some money 1 day in Melbourne will use the car to go Phillip Island and somewhere not so accessible by public transport ( Anywhere else to recommend? )

That sounds good. Here's a few suggestions along the way.
While you are in the Grampians, go for a drive around Halls Gap in early evening - best time to see animals. We were there a few weeks ago and saw hundreds of kangaroos, some emus and deer.
If you want to see a big Australian shopping complex, you could stop at Fountain Gate shopping centre on your way to Philip Island. It's beside the Monash Freeway which is the main route to Philip Island so not out of your way.
In Ballarat, I'd suggest visiting Sovereign Hill, plus there is also the gold museum opposite. You may also enjoy seeing the gardens at Lake Wendouree.

Hope you have a great time!

If you want to go shopping either do it in the city ie stores around Bourke street mall, Emporium and Melb Central .
If you want a suburban shopping mall Id suggest Chadstone which is the biggest one in Australia and on the way to Phillip Island ( youd have enough to do just going to PI in one day without this though ).
Also for places to stay put Southbank in search - lots of nice walks along rivet and close to restaurants and shops
