Connecting two of Australia’s biggest cities, a Sydney to Melbourne road trip is an amazing way to experience the stunning South Coast of Australia. While most will opt for the shorter inland route through Canberra, a coastal drive from Sydney to Melbourne is well worth the extra time and kilometres. The Princes Highway is as beautiful and unique as it is long (1,000 kilometres). It rivals the splendour and variety of Great Ocean Road in terms of beauty and diversity. It is packed with unique treasures that will make for an unforgettable journey. This seaside route includes stunning beaches, rough wilderness and lots of typical Aussie wildlife! I have travelled from Sydney to Melbourne along the Coastal Discovery Drive and would easily put this trip on my list of favourite road trips done Down Under! It is such a nice way to get from Sydney to Melbourne—or vice versa—without the need to fly. These seaside attractions are well worth a stop, even if you only have a few days to drive from Sydney to Melbourne. This Sydney to Melbourne road trip itinerary is best enjoyed over 14 days but can be adjusted to suit any schedule. In this blog post, I’ll offer you a taste of what awaits you on your journey from Sydney to Melbourne as well as some of the must-see attractions in both cities. This isn’t only for people who are travelling between these two cities, but also for those who live in one or both of them and are searching for new ideas.

In this post, I will show you some of the things to see and do in the Rocks, for old buildings and pubs to the observatory and awesome viewpoints to stop the Opera House and the Harbour bridge.
A while back a new zoo opened its doors in Sydney. Located in Sydney’s west, it offers great transport access and minutes away from key locations and other entertainment attractions.
