5. The Great Ocean Road Trip

Although officially the Great Ocean Road starts in Geelong, Melbourne is the ideal start to the trip as it provides the contrast of a big city with the quiet of the small towns dotted along the Great Ocean Road.

6. Sydney South Coast Road Trips

Can you think of a more beautiful place to wake up to on Easter Sunday than the south coast of NSW? We can’t. This short break is calming and rejuvenating.

7. The Central Victoria Road

If you’re wanting a bitta country, bitta city, then here’s one for you. Head out of buzzing Melbourne and cruise out to the Murray River or Gippsland. So, aside from choosing which Easter Family Road Trip you’ll be taking, the only question left is…  Who’s on the tunes?! Better get packing!
