Day One Melbourne 0 km
Welcome to Melbourne you'll soon understand why it's been voted as the world's most liveable city. There are fabulous parks, quirky laneways, restaurants and cafes and innumerable bars and nightclubs. Melbourne is one of the sporting capitals of the world. Get settled in your hotel tonight we all meet at the welcome dinner.
Day Two Melbourne to Apollo Bay 225 km / 140 miles
This morning you pick up your bike at EagleRider Melbourne and begin your journey heading out to the most spectacular road in Australia. Ride fantastic roads taking in an amazing scenery. From EagleRider in Mitcham we will head toward the Great Ocean Road travelling through the tourism based beachside towns of Anglesea, Torquay and Lorne before spending the night at Apollo Bay.
Day Three Apollo Bay to Port Campbell 378 km / 235 miles
Today we continue to travel the Great Ocean Road. In addition to travelling on a road "built" for motorcycles we will stop to take in the views of the "12" Apostles, London Bridge and Perry's Look Out before stopping 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 via London Bridge, or take in the beauty of the entire Shipwreck Coast all the way to Australia's oldest lighthouse at Cape Otway.
Day Four Port Campbell to Sorrento 308 km / 190 miles
Today we will head inland but not before we visit Logans Beach at Warrnambool, hopefully to view female Southern Right whales who return to these waters to calve. The whales often swim within a hundred metres of the shore. After leaving Warrnambool will head north to the seaside village of Queenscliff where we will then take the Ferry across the bay to Sorrento.
Day Five Sorrento to Phillip Island 221 km /137 miles
After breakfast and perhaps a stroll along the beach in Sorrento we will head a little further south to visit one of Australia’s most expensive areas of real estate in the beachside town of Portsea. From Portsea we will head inland and travel along the edge of Western Port Bay however instead of travelling directly to Phillip Island we will take a slight detour and visit the southern coastal towns of Inverloch and Kilcunda. These are great motorcycling roads with spectacular views. Once we arrive and settle in at your accommodation in Phillip Island take the chance to sea some of the most unique wildlife in the world. Attend the Penguin parade or just visit the Australian wildlife reserve.
Day Six Phillip Island to Mitcham 252 km / 155 miles
We will now head back to EagleRider in Mitcham however we will take the less beaten path travelling via the beautiful Gippsland Hills before again turning north west through Warburton, Healesville and the Yarra Valley to our destination of EagleRider Melbourne and we can say our goodbyes at our Farewell Dinner
