We are arriving in Melbourne on 27th Nov ’13 for a 6D6N trip. We are a couple with a 4 year old son. Would appreciate if I can get feedback & tips on the itinerary below. It is our first time in Australia.
Day 1: Arrive in the morning around 8am. Pick up car & drive to Belgrave for a ride in the Puffing Billy. In the evening, drive to Phillip Island. Night at Comfort Resort Kaloha.
Day 2: Panny’s Chocolate factory, Koala Conservation Centre, Churchill Island, Nobbies & the Penguin Parade. A Maze'N Things only if time permits.
Day 3: Check out & leave for Mornington Peninsula. Moonlit Sanctury Wildlife, Strawberry farm & Ashcombe Maze & Lavendar Gardens. Admiral Motor Inn for the night.
Day 4: Take passenger car ferry to Queenscliff & start driving along the Great Ocean Road. Aireys Inlet, Lorne, stop at Apollo Bay for lunch. Continue onwards to Loch Ard Gorge, the Arch, the Blowhole and London Bridge. Spend the night at Comfort Inn Western.
Day 5: Back to Melbourne via Ballarat. Should we spend the night in CBD or outside?
Day 6: Day at ease in Melbourne.
Day 7: Leave for Sydney by 12 noon flight.
Is the above doable? Any other sights/must do things that I should add or anything to exclude? Thanks in advance for your help!
