I will be traveling in the Great Ocean Road on the third week of SEPTEMBER...
This would be my itinerary...
Early Afternoon: Arrive at the town; book an accommodation*
Later afternoon: Rent a car or bike in the accommodation or in a place nearby.
Before Golden Hour/Sunset: Arrive @ Twelve Apostles with rented vehicle
After Twilight Leave: Leave Twelve Apostles with rented vehicle back to hotel
Night/Overnight: Stay at accommodation
Early morning before twilight: Astrophography whatever
Early morning before twilight: Leave hotel to catch Sunrise @ Twelve Apostles using rented vehicle
Before sunrise: Arrive @ Twelve Apostles
After Golden Hour: Leave Twelve Apostles
Later morning: Breakfast @ accommodation or nearby; check-out; return rented vehicle
Later morning: Take a hop-on, off bus back to Melbourne**
1. Which accommodation is near the Twelve Apostles AND is walking distance to a bus stop AND has a bike or car rent?
2. Using those V-line buses, is it possible to leave your heavy luggages there whenever it makes a stop.
Sorry if my questions might sound stupid or naive but this is my FIRST time in Australia.
