For Melbourne, I dint have to sort a thing I literally went on to YHA’s website and found a combo deal with 3 nights accommodation, penguin parade tour on Philip Island, the great ocean road day trip and a sky tower ticket. It worked out perfectly as both trips included meals too. Both tours were really fun and informative.
To get from the airport to the city center get the sky bus that runs regularly and costs around $12.
Trip One Great Ocean Road Trip. – A quick glance.
Started in a small seaside town called Anglsea for morning tea and biscuits, then onto the great ocean road drive with a picture stop at the sign and stopping to see wild koalas and friendly birds, after a lovely drive we stopped for a hot lunch with time to have a look around the place including an ice cream shop that had vegemite flavoured ice cream… Not as bad as it sounds but definitely I preferred the honey malt flavour. The next stop is a short rainforest walk before heading to the main attraction the 12 apostles and more including a beautiful cove. Free wifi on the bus. The guide Rob L was brilliant very informative, fun and friendly and he clearly loves his job.
