Melbourne Itinerary - April/May

Hi all,

Need advice for my trip to Melbourne in April/May. Will only be spending 1 night at Halls Gap (Grampians) and staying in Mel the rest of the nights. Pardon me for the long post! Thanks in advance for any advice:)

Day 1: 27 April Saturday– Arrive 740, head from airport straight to Grampians via car.

Day 2: 28 April Sunday – Leave Grampians and drive down Great Ocean Road – Melbourne.

Is this possible? I think it is nicer to stay in Grampians and see stars at night rather than spending a night at GOR.. Maybe we can just do the main attractions in GOR - Loch Arch, 12 apostles, Triplet falls? Any suggestions?

Day 3: 29 April Monday – Chill day in Melbourne - Queen Victoria market, Arcade, Lygon street.. Would like to see some nice Graffiti places. Any idea where to go?

Day 4: 30 April Tuesday – Melbourne - Mornington Peninsular Hot Springs + Cape Shanck + Sorrento + Strawberry picking at sunny ridge - Philip island

Day 5: 1 May Wednesday – Dandenongs - miss marples, National Rhododendron Gardens, OLINDA – eat pie in the sky. Burlesque bar / club. Etc. Comedy club.

Day 6: 2 May Thursday – Puffing billy (dandenong) Belgrave – Gembrook

We are planning to take public transport to & from Melbourne. Heard that it is nicer to take the longer ride as the end is much nicer.

Day 7: May Friday - Melbourne city. Some awesome brunch/coffee/churros! Southbank yarra river. DFO. Is proud mary breakfast at oxford/ smith street nice?

Day 8: 4 May Saturday – Melbourne museum, Harbourtown shopping.

Day 9: 5 May Sunday – st Kilda market, by tram. Home sweet home.
