A weekend getaway from Melbourne to the Great Ocean Road is one of the most popular weekend trips to do.
When I was living in Melbourne, I have done this road trip several times and loved every second of it. I have done pretty much all options available. I have done a self-drive, an organized day trip as well as an organized 3-day trip.
All options are great and offer something the other does not. For this post, I will show you the best self-drive itinerary, as that allows you with the most flexibility.
So, this Great Ocean Road 2-day itinerary will show you all the best things to do and the best places to stop at when you do a Great Ocean Road self-drive road trip.
Hobart in Tasmania is a hidden little gem! I absolutely fell in love with this beautiful city during my very first visit. The city has the charm of an old harbour town, with lots of historic buildings, a cute harbour and lots of pretty views.
Just a short scoot over Bass Straight and you’re in a magical land that’s so naturally beautiful it takes your breath away. There’s mountains, forests, national parks and rustic oceans for days. In my opinion, this makes Hobart the perfect place to relax from city life making it ideal for a weekend getaway.
Though you possibly can’t see everything within a weekend in Hobart, with this handy guide you will get very far! In the ideal world, I do advise you to hire a car, as heading out of the city and explore a bit of Tasmania is a must!
