Gidday all
Can anybody suggest some itinerary entries for a 2-3 week touring drive of Vic a few days after christmas.
Being a Queenslander I am not too sure of what really should be on the agenda for our cruise outside the shark-net (Qld-NSW border). LOL
Any points of interest including some easy 4WD trails (maybe some Vic. high country) would be appreciated.
I reckon it's about time we saw some of the deep south. Must be something good to keep you all there. Just kidding.
Cheers

Try and include a few days driving around the Great Ocean Road, very picturesque. Plenty to stop and see along the way. The waterfront at Geelong has some 150 bollards telling the history of Geelong, then Torquay the home of the surf clothing and board manufacturers, further on the Lighthouse at Airey's Inlet where the childrens telly series "Around the Twist" was made. Onto Lorne which is magical, then further onto Apollo Bay. Further on near Lavers Hill is a new tourist park in the rainforest - with a very high tree lookout over the rain forest underneath, which is spectacular. Then further on you have the 12 Apostles and magnificent coastline, the Loch Ard Gorge at Port Campbell and further to Warrnambool, famous for Fletcher Jones factory gardens and Maritime Village. So much more,but check out the web - www.greatoceanrd.org.au We have so much to see here down here in "Mexico", you will need more than 2 or 3 weeks. Actually, I live on the wonderful Great Ocean Road, never tire seeing the beautiful surf hitting the rocks.
Anyway have a great time whatever you do.

Hi Oskar, I’m sure you’ll get heaps of info about the most popular “must see’s” – Wilson’s Prom, High country and as Jinki has mentioned “the great ocean road’ has to be on your must do’s.
What I wanted to mention is if you are coming via the inland route “Mungo National Park' is a place worth visiting – it’s actually in NSW about 150 k’s NE of Mildura, which is a major border town on the Murray River – a place full of history and heaps of things to see. If your out that way Mungo is definitely worth the detour.
Enjoy
Alex

I travelled the Great Ocean Road last year. Came from Sydney, through Kosciosko, then on via Sale to the Gt Ocean Road. Terrific trip. The Great Ocean Road is absolutely awesome. No postcard or travel mag does justice to it.

However a great number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.
