Hi everyone, we are a family of 3 (2 adults and 1 teenage daughter) and we will be travelling to Melbourne from new year day onwards. I appreciate if you guys & gals can help us in planning a wonderful time in Melbourne by suggesting some place to visit and things to do along the way.
My plan itinerary as follow:
Jan 1 – Arrive Melbourne in the evening. Free & easy day
Jan 2 – City visit
Jan 3 – Pick up car in the morning and head for a full day of shopping. Can anyone suggest the best place for shopping outside Melbourne downtown? As I would be doing GOR the next day, can anyone suggest a good place to stay for the night?
Jan 4 – Embark on GOR, overnight at Apollo Bay
Jan 5 – Continue GOR, overnight at Port Fairy
Jan 6 – Port Fairy to Halls Gap or Ballarat
Haven’t decide which place to go. Any suggestions which is better?
Jan 7 – Halls Gap/Ballarat to outskirt of Melbourne for the follow day to Healesville Sanctuary
Any suggestions on place to stay overnight which is near Healesville Sanctuary?
Jan 8 – Healesville followed by Phillip Island for penguins parade.
Jan 9 – Phillip Island free and easy plus Puffing Billy ride before heading back to Melbourne for the night
Jan 10 – Shopping day in Melbourne. Can recommend me any good factory outlet? I promise wife 2 days of shopping
Jan 11 – St Kilda. Free & easy
Jan 12 – Free and easy in town and evening flight back home
All comments are welcome to perfect my family trip. Thank you very much
