From Kingston, continue on the Southern Ports Highway to Robe, a small town nestled on the edge of Guichen Bay.
DAY 03: Robe to Port Fairy (308 km – or via the Grampians 510 km)
A choice of routes is available. The shorter route will take you via Millicent, and on to Mount Gambier and then along the coast to Portland and then onto Port Fairy. The longer route means a very early start, from Robe travel to Mt Gambier and then through the towns of Hamilton, Coleraine and Casterton and onto Dunkeld. From Dunkeld a scenic drive will take you through the Grampians National Park and onto Halls Gap. Departing from Dunkeld, travel via Penhurst to reach Port Fairy. Port Fairy is a quaint fishing village with many limestone and bluestone buildings in the town dating back to the 1840’s and classified by the National Trust.
DAY 04: Port Fairy to Apollo Bay (188 km)
This morning depart Port Fairy and travel towards Warrnambool. Continue along the “Shipwreck Coast” and you will come across “London Bridge” – the broken arch, before reaching Port Campbell, a quaint little seaside town. Travelling on past Port Campbell you will first come to Loch Ard Gorge and then a short distance on, the Twelve Apostles, which are huge stone rock formations carved over time by the waves of this rugged coastline. After Cape Otway rejoin the coastline and the unmatched scenery which is the Great Ocean Road.
DAY 05: Apollo Bay to Melbourne (189 km)
The road from Apollo Bay to Lorne has been described as one of the most beautiful and breathtaking drives in the world. Explore the beautiful Erskine Falls near Lorne before following the coast road through Anglesea to the picturesque town of Torquay, recognised as the surfing capital of Australia.
