Melbourne Touring - Driving holiday

Holidaymakers looking to get behind the wheel and explore their surrounding for themselves would do well to consider a touring or driving holiday in Melbourne. From near the city limits one of the most popular self-drive routes for tourists to follow is the circular Great Southern Touring Route, which includes spectacular scenery and takes in some of Victoria's most beautiful, scenic and cultural attractions.

The first part of the route hugs the coastline going south along the Great Ocean Road, renowned for its coastal scenery, passing lush Otways rainforests and on to the magnificent limestone rock sculptures known as the Twelve Apostles in the Port Campbell National Park. Other attractions along the Great Ocean Road include the historic villages of Port Campbell, Queenscliff, Portland and Port Fairy, as well as resort towns and coastal cities such as Torquay, Apollo Bay, Geelong and Warrnambool.

A wonderful holiday destination for anyone looking to embark on a touring or driving break, Melbourne is a must for most.
