You will be forgiven for not realizing that we have recently relocated from Brisbane to Melbourne. We are still catching up on so many of our past adventures that we have not had the time to write about our amazing new home. (And it is amazing – we simply LOVE Melbourne!)
We have been here about a month now and are thoroughly settled in. All our pictures are on the walls, and all the boxes are unpacked. So now it’s time to explore!
Last time we travelled through Victoria we were in a bit of a rush. Other than the Great Ocean Road (which is awesome), we only had time to explore Melbourne and Mildura, before heading onward to Canberra.
So it was super great timing when we were contacted by Choice hotels to go on a couple family road trips around Victoria. We will be undertaking two itineraries; one through Gippsland and one through Central Victoria.
We will soon be setting off on our first big adventure in Victoria as a family. Our first itinerary will be through Gippsland. Highlights of this tour include checking out the restaurants on Melbournes Lygon street, watching the Penguin Parade on Philip Island, cruising Lakes Entrance, and admiring Gold Rush architecture in Traralgon.
Then later we will be setting off through Central Victoria. More details on that trip shortly!
So what is your dream family adventure in Australia? Is it the Great Ocean Road? Is it a central coast adventure from Sydney to Brisbane? Is it an epic outdoor adventure through Tasmania?
Our partners, Choice Hotels want to make these dream family road trip adventures a reality for 10 lucky families.
