If you are driving from Melbourne leave early or take 2 days - its a long way.
It took us about 5 hours to drive to the 12 Apostles, which was very scenic but quite tiring.
Nice places to stop for a cuppa are : Anglesey, Lorne and Apollo Bay.
There is some lovely forest in the Otway National park and some pretty lighthouses as this is the Shipwreck coast. The beaches are gorgeous with sea arches and thundering surf.
A good overnight stop is Warnambool about 1 hours drive further on from the 12 Apostles. It also has an interesting historic park reacreating an original settlers colony.
It may take 6 hours or so to get to Warnambool on the coast road but if you take the Princes highway back to Melbourne travelling inland it takes only 3 /2 hours .The scenery isvery pastoral and there are hardly any cars!
