I plan to stay in Melbourne for 4 days: 1 day in the city, 1 day in The Great Ocean Road.I would like to ask how to make full use of the remaining two days? I am wondering if it is necessary to spend 2 days in The Great Ocean Road? I heard that Philip’s penguins are not worth seeing. I will fly back to Shanghai on the morning of the 5th day (7.40am). Is it too late to leave for the airport at 5 o ‘clock (I have not checked in my baggage)? Thank you very much!

  1. Personally, I concentrate more on enjoying myself when traveling, instead of planning out the scheduled every day. If you are free, you can sit in a coffee house and watch people go by. Isn’t it a great way to relax yourself?

  2. I think it is necessary to spend two days in Great Ocean Road. I drove there by myself last time and stayed in Warrnambool that night, which was very nice. One day seems to be a little in a hurry. And it’s getting dark earlier and earlier recently. If you don’t miss your train, you can leave for the airport at five o ‘clock.

  3. I just came back last month. Although the penguins were not worth watching,the scenery along the road was very good. If you have enough time, you can stay in a village in the middle of the Great Ocean Road for one night. If you want to sign up for a day tour. I recommend Go West.I lived in Rimond, the 7:30 flight left at 5:30, but it’s qantas domestic. If your flight is international, you had better leave early because there are too many people crossing border control.

  4. Thank you for your suggestions. My schedule has changed now. And now I have one extra day in the Great Ocean Road. Can you recommend some villages nearby for me to visit?

  5. If you want to enjoy the scenery in the Great Ocean Road, you should spend at least two days there.

  6. I am wondering if I should stay in The Great Ocean Road for 6 days or 7 days. Two days are just not enough.

  7. Your schedule will be a little tight if you only spend two days in The Great Ocean Road. I think three days should be just enough. You can spend one day in Daylesford, one day in Yarra Valley, one day in Mornington, one day in Phillip island, one day in small trains and Dandenong, and 1 day in Ballarat. Above are some alternative choices for you, you can choose one or more according to your schedule. If you still have some more time, you can stay in Grampians for a day or two. These choices are all building blocks, you can mix and match them according to your preference.
