Torquay: Located 95km south-west of Melbourne, Torquay is the surfing capital of Australia. The town is at the starting-point of the Great Ocean Road, and is home to the world-famous Bells Beach. If you’re interested in surfing, you can ride the waves or visit the Surf World Museum; and if you’d prefer to stay on dry land, you can complete a stretch of the Surf Coast Walk.
Phillip Island: Phillip Island is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the state of Victoria, and it’s a great day out for nature-lovers. What’s more, the island is less than a two-hour drive from Melbourne. If you stay until sunset, you will be able to witness the ‘Penguin Parade’ — where lots of Little Penguins run back to the shore after a day of fishing. To pass the time until then, you can relax on one of the beautiful beaches or enjoy a scenic drive around the picturesque island.
Maru Koala and Animal Park: A great day out for the whole family, the Maru Koala and Animal Park lets you get up close and personal with some of Australia’s native species. You can feed a koala, pat a kangaroo, walk with dingoes and hold a python — while the hourly talks let you learn all about the different species.
