Nothing wrong with the directions given. But don't let google decide where to stop. Re the suggestion to stop a while in Campbelltown, agree its a nice town, plenty of historic buildings, but a bit further south, slight off highway detours through both Ross and Oatlands are very worthwhile. Even if just for 30 minute stops, though longer is not going to bore most

At least this post gives us an insight into how little of the state a tourist will stop to see on a five hour trip - all thanks to googlemaps. Very sad.

Agree with Campbell Town for a rest as it is one of the best towns on the route for a coffee stop, stretch & rest break. There is a great little playground that appeals to the little ones. Thank you for sharing the itinerary!
