The Great Ocean Road and the Twelve Apostles: So many ships were lost in the 1800′s that it is called “The Shipwreck Coast”. Rolling farmland runs to the coast.  Want a farmstay?  This is the area. Get scenery, farmstay, coastline and beaches all in the one area.

>>> Travel Destination Great Ocean Road

The Grampians and the Western District: There are so many wild kangaroos out here that you can see them from the road. The Grampians is a range of mountains that rise up out of the plains and farmland. Combine the Great Ocean Road and make it a self drive from Melbourne for a few days.
