DAY 01: Melbourne to Yarra Valley (62 km)
Leaving Melbourne, the best route to the Yarra Valley is via the Eastern Freeway through Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. The Yarra Valley is home to Victoria’s earliest vineyards and is recognised as one of the world’s great wine growing regions. Numerous wineries offer cellar door tastings and sales, and have restaurants serving gourmet food and fine local produce accompanied by their wine. Perhaps also get close to Australian wildlife at Healesville Sanctuary, home to dingos, kangaroos, wombats and the elusive platypus.
DAY 02: Yarra Valley to Phillip Island (145 km)
This morning travel south east to San Remo in time for the free daily feeding of the Pelicans at noon, before heading over the bridge to Phillip Island. Phillip Island is home to Australia’s famous Little Penguins. The famous `Penguin Parade’ occurs each evening at sunset and should not be missed.
DAY 03: Phillip Island to Mornington Peninsula (100 km)
Depart Phillip Island heading west around the bay along the Bass Highway and South Gippsland Highway to the heart of the Mornington Peninsula. Stylish Sorrento and Portsea are filled with antique shops, galleries, cafes and numerous walking trails along the ocean-facing coastline. Heading inland, you’ll find a number of boutique wineries, where many vineyard restaurants create gourmet dishes to match their individual wines. The afternoon is yours to explore all that the Mornington Peninsula has to offer. Maybe grab an attraction pass which includes entry to the Lavender Farm, Moonlit Sanctuary and Cape Schanck Lighthouse to name a few. Visit Flinders on the eastern side of the Peninsula and Cape Schanck, the southernmost point of the Peninsula.
DAY 04: Mornington Peninsula to Melbourne (80 km)
Today depart the Mornington Peninsula and then make the return journey north to Melbourne along the Nepean Highway and Melbourne’s beachside suburbs.
Your vehicle is booked until tomorrow and should be returned by the same time it was collected on Day 1 to avoid additional charges.
