Great Ocean Road

Victoria Great Ocean Road

Stretching 243 km from Torquay to Allnsford, near Warrnambool, in Victorias south. The Great Ocean Road is one of Australia’s great drives. A popular stop along the way is the 12 Apostles, 12 limestone karsts that stand like sentinels guarding the coast.
 
The Great Ocean road offers stunning views of the dramatic southern Australian mainland coast. In 2004 The Great Ocean Walk opened connecting 104 km of walking trails from Apollo Bay to the 12 Apostles.

Victorian Goldfields

Victorian Goldfields

The Victorian Gold rush was between 1851 to around 1870, with large amounts of gold being found and making Victoria a very wealthy state. Now you can visit the Victorian Goldfields in central Victoria with the main cities being Ballarat & Bendigo and the smaller towns including Daylesford, Castlemaine and Maryborough.

In Ballarat you will find Soverign Hill, a recreation of a 1850’s gold town and in Bendigo you can visit an old mine.

This area can be done in a day trip from Melbourne however to experience it fully it is better to saty in the area for a few days.

Ned Kelly Country

Ned Kelly Country

Ned Kelly was an Australian bushranger and is famous in Aussie folklore. He famously wore a suit of bulletproof armour during his final shootout with the police. Ned Kelly roamed in the northeastern area including Glenrowan, Euroa, and Beechworth where a museum is found. Beechworth is a lovely town and well worth a visit if driving to/from Sydney in New South Wales.

The Grampians National Park

The Grampians National Park, or just The Grampians, is a lovely National Park 260 km west of Melbourne with great camping and hiking. It is a great place to visit if travelling by road to South Australia.
