My husband and I will be arriving in Australia in a week (very EXCITED!).
We will be spending four nights around Melbourne. We're not really interested in Melbourne city (sorry!) but would like to do the GOR and Phillip Island.
My main concern is which to start off with, GOR or Phillip Island, and where to spend those 4 nights, especially in regard to our travel schedule coming into and going out of Melbourne.
We initially planned to start on Phillip Island and spend a night there, then take the Mornington route to GOR the next day, but we worry that it would be too much travelling on one day, since we'd start that day very early to catch the 7.30am ferry from Kangaroo Island.
Sun 28/1: Catch the early 7.30am ferry from Kangaroo Island (already booked) then drive 120km to Adelaide airport (ETA:10:30am). Return rental car and catch 12:55 plane to Melbourne. Arrive Melbourne at 2:45 PM and pickup rental car. Go to where?
Mon 29/1: ???
Tues 30/1: ???
Wed 31/1: ???
Thu 1/2: Depart Melbourne Airport on 3:20pm flight
Our main interests on GOR and Phillip Island are wildlife and scenery, and I have some mobility issues that would prevent me from walking more than 5-10 minutes at a time. So anything that we can visit by car or via a short walk would be perfect.
Your help is gladly appreciated.
