Is it Worth a Detour to Ballarat before GOR Drive

Jump to last reply

We are driving the GOR from Melbourne to Cape Jervis over 4 days. Our first planned stop is Apollo Bay. Is it worth making a detour to Ballarat first and then heading to Geelong to start this drive? This is about a 1.5 hr drive from Melbourne and then another 1.25 hr drive from Ballarat to Geelong. We planned to stop along the way at Twelve Arches and Loch Ard. Would that cut into the day too much if we made that stop and is that a worthwhile stop?
