Hit the open road and take a cruise along the Bass Coast. It's about an hour and a half drive from Melbourne. There are cute little towns along the coastline which offer accommodation if you want to stay the night and squeeze in some extra sightseeing.
There are some brilliant spots to park and stretch your legs by taking a walk along some of the gorgeous beaches and walking tracks. If you venture further inland from the coastline, there are some wineries to check out.
Checking out the 'Eagles Nest' is a must when exploring Inverlochs beaches, it is a rock formation that looks like the top of Australia which has been formed like that from the tide. Very cool! And a great opportunity to get a pic while the tide is out.
