Looking to do a Great Ocean Road and environs trip in December. Below is our suggested itinerary. Any suggestions for alternatives, or other comments would be welcome. The dates we leave Melbourne (17 Dec)and the date we need to be back in Melbourne (24 Dec) are fixed. We would be using a hire car and staying in hotels along the way. Our interests are walking, photography and wildlife.
18 Drive to Port Campbell-stay 2 nights in Port Campbell
20 Drive to Port Fairy-stay 1 night in Port Fairy.
21 Drive to Halls Gap-stay 2 nights in Halls Gap
23 Drive to Ballarat-stay 1 night in Halls Gap
24 Return to Melbourne.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
