Melbourne, the coastal capital of the state of Victoria, is a convenient starting point to begin one of Australia’s most popular and scenic coastal caravan drives – the Great Ocean Road. This seaside route traverses over 400kms alongside postcard-perfect views of windswept beaches and limestone cliffs, including the iconic 12 Apostles!
Geelong, a thriving waterfront precinct, marks The Great Ocean Road’s eastern edge, with historical buildings and the National Wool Museum as key features. The surfing hub of Torquay and world famous Bells Beach is the next point of interest to park your campervan and take some pictures. From there, travel on to the coastal village of Lorne, where you can stop for lunch at one of the beach cafes or stretch your legs on a hike to nearby waterfalls. If you’re keen, you can continue caravanning all the way to Victoria’s favourite fishing village, Port Fairy, or visit the Flagstaff Maritime Museum at the road’s western end tourist town of Warrnambool.
Well known for its glamping, camping and caravanning, getting around the gorgeous Grampians is one of the most motorhome-friendly adventures you can take as the highway is well-serviced from The Great Ocean Road and Melbourne. Check out these great Melbourne campervan self-drive itineraries!
Back in Melbourne’s city centre alongside the Yarra River is fabulous Federation Square, where you can wander down hidden laneways filled with cafes, restaurants and modern street art. Alternatively, you can shop to your heart’s content at Church Street’s boutique fashion shops. Southbank is home to the Melbourne Arts Precinct where you can visit the National Gallery of Victoria which honours the Indigenous Australians, or see a live show on stage at Australia’s largest and busiest performing arts complex called the Arts Centre Melbourne. Last but not least, Melbourne’s MCG is where all the local fans cheer on their favourite football teams if you’d like to join in on the fun!
Less than an hour away from Melbourne, scenic winding roads will take your GoCheap Campervan to the Dandenong Ranges, with its romantic hideaways, abundance of art studios, walking and cycling trails.
