BEST TIME OF THE YEAR TO TRAVEL
Driving Distances: Melbourne - Adelaide 725 km
  This remarkable stretch of coastline from Apollo Bay to Warrnambool provides travellers with one of the most spectacular coastal drives in Australia. The focal point of the trip are The Twelve Apostles; a group of 50 metre high, weathered limestone stacks that stand majestically off the coastline. And what better way to travel this spectacular tourist route than in a RV, Campervan or Motorhome, that you can pick-up in either Melbourne or Adelaide.

Melbourne is Australia's second largest capital city. There has always been a rivalry between Sydney and Melbourne as to which is the best. It's a bit like comparing apples with oranges; they are that different. There is a level of sophistication, style, and appreciation of the arts and culture, that defines Melbourne. This is evident in its world class art galleries, museums, theatres, fashion boutiques and restaurants. On the less refined side, Melbourne people love their sport, especially their unique code of football. Each year Melbourne hosts the Australian Tennis Open and the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Like Sydney, there is so much to see and do that we could devote a whole website on Melbourne alone. We recommend that you spend a couple of days exploring Melbourne, staying in or close to the City before taking delivery of your vehicle to start your touring holiday.

  The Great Ocean Road.

The Great Ocean Road is one of the most spectacular road journeys in the world. Your touring holiday starts at Torquay, just south of Geelong. Tourquay is Victoria's surfing capital, with beautiful, white, sandy beaches to please everyone. Some are protected from the ocean and are ideal for safe swimming and family fun, while others, a little further around the coast, are often 'wild'. The world famous Bells Beach hosts an international surfing tournament each year. Torquay is a great place to buy some 'hot' surf clothing or just stop for a hot coffee. At Anglesea the road starts its spectacular coastal run hugging the winding coastline and offering breathtaking views of the southern ocean. Lorne is another pretty little coastal town with a safe swimming beach and a delightful picnic area overlooking the beach. From Lorne to Apollo Bay is where you start to overuse the word 'spectacular', as the road twists and turns along the rugged coastline. Apollo Bay is a good place to stop, and use as a base to explore the magnificent rainforests and waterfalls of the Great Otway National Park. The next leg, from Apollo Bay to Port Campbell. The focal point, and highlight of the whole trip, are the The Twelve Apostles; a group of 50 metre high, weathered limestone stacks that stand majestically off the coastline. Now this is truly SPECTACULAR!!!!! especially at sunrise and sunset with dramatic changes in colour. Other stunning coastal features include Loch Ard Gorge, Gibson Steps and the Bay of Islands. Port Campbell is a tiny little fishing village and a charming place to stay, especially if you want to catch those sunrise or sunset shots. Rich in maritime historic, the seaside towns of Warrnambool and Port Fairy allow the visitor to enjoy seafaring village life, with their fishing wharves, beautifully preserved colonial buildings and maritime museums recounting the stories of ships that have foundered off the rugged shipwreck coast.
 
   
  Although Adelaide is more the size and has the ambience of a large country town, it lacks nothing in cultural sophistication and diversity. Visitors wanting a slower, more relaxed pace to explore the many galleries, museums, cafes, restaurants, theatres, parks and gardens, will find Adelaide very pleasant. Whether you are starting or finishing the The Great Ocean Road drive in Adelaide, it's a good place to spend a couple of days looking around and perhaps taking some short trips to the Barossa Valley, Kangaroo Island and/or the Fleurieu Peninsula & The Coorong.  
  The Barossa Valley, the Clare Valley and the Adelaide hills are amongst the oldest wine regions in Australia. Established in the 1840's they are rich in European heritage, culture and tradition. These regions produce some of the finest wines and cheeses in the World. They are very pretty places to visit with friendly, hospitable people, and talented artists and craftspeople. Great places to visit, taste wine and savour the culinary delights. The Barossa Valley is only a one hour drive north of Adelaide.  
  Kangaroo Island, just off the coast, south-west of Adelaide, is a haven for wildlife. Koalas, echidnas, platypi, goannas, penguins, fur seals, sea-lions, wallabies, and of course kangaroos, can be found in the 'wild'. Kangaroo Island is a flora and fauna paradise. There is so much to see and do on the Island, that a one day tour may not satisfy your love of nature and appreciation of beauty. You can take a campervan or motorhome onto the Island, subject to restrictions and conditions. Don't forget the camera.  
  Fleurieu Peninsula & The Coorong. The trip down the Fleurieu Peninsula to Victor Harbour and then on to the Coorong National Park, is one of great contrasts in scenery. From lush green vineyards with rugged coastlines and blue ocean in the background, to fishing villages, and the vast sand dunes and estuaries of the Coorong, will delight the visitor's senses. The Coorong is a wonderful place to just sit back and relax, and observe the abundance of migratory birds. Don't forget the binoculars.
