Kick off your Australian holiday in cosmopolitan Melbourne and then hit the highway to experience one of the best road trips the country has to offer. Sail through pristine waterways and get up close to iconic wildlife. Stretch out in the sun on endless sandy beaches, sample fresh local seafood and enjoy a tipple at world-renowned wineries. Finish your journey with a scenic drive up the coast towards the bright lights of Sydney, Australia's biggest city.

Make the most of your trip by travelling at your own pace and choosing what suits you best from our seven-day itinerary. Venture inland on the second leg of your journey and roll along the green hills of West Gippsland, or mix it up and return on the Sydney to Melbourne Heritage Drive.
