Day 1: Melbourne - Lorne/Apollo Bay
Travel around the shores of Port Phillip Bay to Torquay, the start of the Great Ocean Road and recognised as the surfing capital of Australia. Kick back here a while to absorb the laid-back atmosphere, then follow the coast road to the picturesque town of Lorne, or onwards along the spectacular stretch to Apollo Bay.
Standard: Comfort Inn Lorne Bay, Lorne. Superior: Mantra Erskine Beach, Lorne. Boutique: Captain's at the Bay, Apollo Bay (incl. breakfast)
Day 2: Lorne/Apollo Bay - Port Fairy
Departing from either Lorne or Apollo Bay this morning, travel along the Great Ocean Road to Port Campbell. This scenic coastline has been described as one of the most beautiful and breathtaking drives in the world, and we're not going to argue. Stop to see the lighthouse at Cape Otway, before reaching the most dramatic part of the route, the 'Shipwreck Coast'. Here, you'll see the Loch Ard Gorge, the broken arch of London Bridge and the amazing rock formations of the Twelve Apostles - huge stone pillars carved over time by the power of the sea. Drop into charming Port Campbell for a while and continue via Warrnambool to Port Fairy for an overnight stay.
Standard: Comfort Inn Port Fairy. Superior: Hearn's Cottages. Boutique: Oscar's Waterfront Hotel (incl. breakfast)
Day 3: Port Fairy - Robe
Today, there is a choice of routes, the shorter drive will take you via Portland along the coast directly to Mount Gambier, and then on to Robe. The longer route will mean an early start and a scenic drive through the Grampians National Park and onto Halls Gap. Highlights within the Grampians include Mt Victoria Lookout and McKenzie Falls. From here, return to Dunkeld, and then onto Mt Gambier and Robe.
Standard: Best Western Melaleuca. Superior: Robe House (incl. breakfast). Boutique: Robe House 1-Bed Apartment
Day 4: Robe - Barossa Valley
After breakfast, continue to Kingston and travel towards Adelaide, travelling along the Coorong National Park skirting Lakes Albert and Alexandrina. Stop for a while in Mannum, one of the oldest towns on the mighty Murray River, a former trading post with an historic and lively past. The Barossa Valley, where you'll spend the last night of this self-drive holiday, is one of Australia's most famous wine-producing areas. It is a warm and intimate place of charming old towns, many of which display a Germanic influence, with vineyards spreading across undulating hills in well-tended, precise rows.
Standard: Barossa Motor Lodge. Superior: Novotel Barossa Valley. Boutique: The Louise (incl. breakfast)
Day 5: Barossa Valley - Adelaide
There is plenty of time today to explore the Barossa Valley, which produces some of the very best wines in Australia. Some of the most famous wineries of the region are Yalumba, Orlando, Penfolds and Seppelts. Some wineries are still run by members of the same families that established them last century. This afternoon, travel south through Gawler to Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, known as the ‘City of Churches’. Your tour comes to an end on arrival, though your car has been booked until tomorrow morning. It should be returned by the same time it was picked up on day one to avoid additional charges.
