The wife and I are planning our 2.5 months trip around Australia and need a little help with this part.
We arrive into Melbourne (after Alice) and after 2 days sightseeing around town, we are going to hire a car and gradually head to Sydney.
However, first of all we want to go the wrong way and do the GOR. First night we expect to overnight at Apollo Bay and then were looking to possibly break the journey and spend the next night at Port Fairy. The next day is a bit of a slog, as we head to Yanakie/ Wilsons Prom for 2 nights. From there, to overnight at Eden and then 2 nights at Jervis Bay.
My question is, how far down the GOR should we travel after Apollo Bay, before we call it a day and head to Yanakie. I suppose I mean is there much to see between Peterborough and Port Fairy? If not we could give Port Fairy a miss and head back via Scotts Creek and Bungador and then onto Yanakie. We know this will be a very long days travel, but we can gain a day if we miss out Port Fairy.
One other consideration, if it affects anything, is that we will be traveling during the Schoolies invasion.
