What it’s all about
While being invited to attend a friend’s wedding in Hamilton, 3.5 hours west of Melbourne, we decided to rent a car and utilise it to see a bit more of the inland of Australia. A quick trip (4 days) we landed in Melbourne in the morning, picked up a rental car (a Holden of course – when in Rome …. :-), drove to the CBD, where we overnighted, while visiting the city and Eureka Tower, the Eureka SkyDeck being the highest public viewing platform in the Southern Hemisphere and Southbank. The next morning we left Melbourne for Hamilton (via Geelong), and attended the late afternoon/evening wedding. Morning after that we drove via Port Fairy to Port Campbell, where we overnighted in an Apartment, before departing again next day, covering a portion of the famous Great Ocean Road, before arriving at Melbourne Airport, returning the rental car and departing back to Auckland on a late flight.
