we are a couple arriving melbourne airport at 6.30am on the 22nd dec for 4 days and will do a 3 days GOR drive to adelaide.
i realize we have 4 full days in melbourne but was told everything is pratically close on christmas day itself. here are some doubts after i did some research, any opinion is highly appreciated.
is it doable? if
1. i hire a car at the airport and drive to morning peninsula on the first day of arrival, stay one night and drive back to melbourne cbd in the morning? we plan to visit a few places in mornington. arthurs seat, sorrento, 1 or 2 wineries, lavender farm and maze garden in a day. will it be too rush ? its summer time so i figure sun sets pretty late?
2. the only affordable accommodations i found on the web are in frankston. is it a good place to stay? we probably be out the whole day and only check in in the evening and spend a night there to avoid driving back to melbourne at night.
3. any other day trip suggestions are welcome! i am leaving out yarra as i will go to barossa and kangaroo island when i am in adelaide. and my partner does not drink much.
some little about us, we are in our thirties, loves nature and food, would like to go for a concert or a jazz play in melbourne.
