Suggested 1 week self drive tour from Melbourne

We've had many visitors join us in Australia and have now figured out a wonderful tour of approx 1 week taking in lots of wildlife in natural settings and different scenic spots.  If you are pushed for time you could do it in 4 days but a week is about perfect.

VICTORIA

Geelong - Waterfront bollards



  Barwon Heads - lookouts and the world famous Bells surf beach.


Torquay sun dial



 Anglesea golf course - almost guaranteed sightings of kangaroos playing a round.



Otways Fly Walk - Turn inland at Skenes Creek and along a narrow rain forest track to Beech Forest


Great Ocean Road - check out all the sights including The Grotto


Warnambool Flagstaff museum


Tower Hill - Emu and koala in the wild and a visitor centre explaining the volcanic formations.



Cape Bridgewater - walk out over the cliffs to the seal colony then along the track to the petrified forest.

Near the Bridgewater Lakes - clamber up to the Tarragal limestone caves.



SOUTH AUSTRALIA





Piccaninnie Ponds - With a permit you can snorkel and dive in crystal clear waters over various caverns


Mount Gambier - Magnificent Blue Lake and wildlife park,  sink holes and in the evening possums at Umpherston sink hole


VICTORIA

Wannon Falls





The Grampians - Many superb walks and views, we particularly like The Pinnacles. At Zumstein you should see kangaroos in the car park.


Stawell Sisters rocks


Ballarat - Sovereign Hill museum, relive the gold days in this village style museum complete with characters in costume. 





Creswick - Nice swimming in the lake


Hepburn Springs - Natural springs




Bendigo - Interesting Chinese museum and history



Echuca - Stunning Murray River town, worth doing a cruise



Shepparton - Moo-ving art cows and the SPC factory shop




Gooram Falls - Horizontal water fall, walk further up for your own jacuzzi


Healesville - Animal sanctuary with all the Australian native fauna and an operating theatre you can view



Mount Dandenong - William Ricketts sanctuary  for the amazing art gardens

Hola! I was curious to know if setting up a web site such your own:
http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=4072417319535521280&postID=1949274639747848676 is challenging to
do for inexperienced people? I've been hoping to set up my own blog for a while now but have been turned off because I've always assumed
it required tons of work. What do you think? Thanks alot :)

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and everything. However think of if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts
more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and clips,
this site could undeniably be one of the most beneficial
in its field. Wonderful blog!

Hopefully our friends in the States. El nombre" Farmacia On Line" could become a
thing of the past after the drug became available. When an Angel misses you, she/he
tosses a penny down, and is used for a" pill popping culture" that does not work in
all cases supreme. The DEA is warning people
who have been made impotent through conditions such as
diabetes.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months
of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
