- Wilsons Promontory We've camped at Wilsons Prom many times. Its a national park and largely unspoilt. Many places are only accessible by foot. Its a campers paradise. The beaches are clean white sand and wildlife is plentiful. Wombats roam the campsites at night and you can lie awake at night and hear them munching on the grass outside your tent.

- Puffing Billy The tracks winds its way through farmland and bush (and in places people's backyards). Its a scenic trip with the magic of a steam train. The famous trestle bridge is just out of Belgrave. Most people stop at Lakeside and enjoy a picnic lunch in the beautiful park. If you continue on to Gembrook you pass through farmland to the little village of Gembrook. The kids love sitting in the windows with their feet out the window. Wear glasses or you will get soot in your eyes.
- Sovereign Hill Another family favourite. Sovereign Hill is a recreation of an 1850s mining town. You can pan for gold, visit the shops, go down the gold mine, see the battery stamp and boilers, see the gold pour and various other demonstrations through out the day. You can easily spend a day here. The curry pies at the bakery are delicious.

We drove the Great Ocean Road from end to end in December 2007 and camped along the way. Definately worth doing, the scenery is spectacular with the ocean on one side and the forests of the Otways on the other. The road itself was built by returned soldiers after WWI. It took 14 years to build and is a memorial to the soldiers killed in WWI.
I don't know about the bike race but Bright is beautiful.
One of my husband's favourite places to visit. Walhalla is a tiny town deep in a valley. It was once a thriving mining town but now has around 20 permanent residents. You can visit the gold mine, ride the steam train, walk the Alpine track (all the way to Canberra if you have a week or two to spare) and see the historical sites.
We camped at the Grampians in April 2008. The scenery is spectacular and there are many bushwalking tracks leading to lookouts, waterfalls, rock art and some stunning scenery.
The chocolate is yummy though not cheap. The building is made from straw bale.
Take a warm blanket and someone to snuggle up with and watch the penguins come in up the beach to their burrows. There is plenty to do at Phillip Island so go early, visit some of the attractions on the island and finish off the day with the penquin parade.
