Day 1. Melbourne to Apollo Bay
This morning you pick up your bike and begin your journey heading out to the most spectacular road in Australia.
We suggest you ride to Sorrento and catch the Ferry across the Bay heading toward the Great Ocean Road. Ride through the tourism based beach side towns of Anglesea, Torquay and Lorne before spending the night at Apollo Bay. This is a beautiful part of the coast.
Day 2. Apollo Bay to Port Campbell
Today you continue to travel the Great Ocean Road. In addition to travelling on a road “built” for motorcycles make sure you take in the views at Gibson’s Steps, the “12” Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge before stopping for the night at Port Campbell.
If you are up for it, take a breathtaking helicopter flight over the most beautiful scenery in Australia; the 12 Apostles, the Bay of Islands, London Bridge or take in the beauty of the entire Shipwreck Coast all the way to Australia’s oldest lighthouse at Cape Otway.
Day 3. Port Campbell to Halls Gap
Before turning and heading North we suggest you travel a bit further South to the Bay of Islands. Once you have finished looking at this spectacular part of the coast head inland to Halls Gap. The road is great for motorcycling and the wild life at Halls Gap needs is like no where else in Australia. There are also local rides and look outs that you need to explore.
Day 4. Halls Gap to Ringwood
It is about 3 hours ride back to Ringwood (excluding peak hour issues) so either spend more time at Halls Gap before hitting the road again or, leave early and leave yourself time to visit Soverign Hill at Ballarat. Named Australia’s best ‘Major Tourist Attraction’ four times, Sovereign Hill provides a unique Australian experience showcasing the Gold Rush era which started in Australia at Ballarat.
