Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and more highlights in Down Under
On this round trip through Australia you will get to know the highlights of the south eastern part of the country in 12 days. Your round trip through Australia starts in the metropolis Melbourne the Sunshine City in the state of Victoria. Here you will pick up your rental car and head towards the Great Ocean Road, the natural wonder of the south coast with its unique rock formations such as the Twelve Apostles and the London Bridge. With some luck you might even be able to do some whale watching from the coast. After overnight stays in Port Campbell und Portland, your tour leads you into the inland to the old gold mining city Ballarat, where the reconstructed village Sovereign gives you a picture of how it was in the 19th century. The next stop on your round trip through Australia is the Murray River, the longest river of the country. In Echuca, you will take a boat trip with an old paddle steamer before you continue on to the vineyards of Routherglen. An overnight stay is in Albury. Through the modern capital Canberra where you can visit the Australian government quarter, you will finally reach Australia's largest and most beautiful city Sydney, the highlight of every rental car round trip. Experience a special dinner during a harbor cruise on board the Captain Cook, visit a show in the famous opera house or simply relax at one of the famous beaches of Sydney. After two nights in Sydney your round trip takes you back again to Melbourne. This time you will drive along the beautiful coastal road, through the Bedarah State Forest to Bateman's Bay and Lakes Entrance. Finally you will return to Melbourne where you will return your rental car and fly back home or extend your vacation stay.
