Port Fairy in Victoria has been on my list of places to escape to. Just took me forever to organise it in time for the school holidays. It is located just that bit further from Melbourne so a long weekend is ideal. Located approximately 4 hours from Melbourne (inland drive) or you can add it as part of your Great Ocean Road trip (time permitting).
There is only one more sleep left till Christmas and you might be one of those that are not fully organised and still looking for that last minute feel good gift or in my case, the Bookdepository order has not arrived in time for Christmas...So here are a few suggestions to take the pressure off....

Hey guys, it’s Mark here from photography website Shotkit. I want to say a big merci beaucoup to the Travelling Frenchies team for allowing me to guest post here on their fantastic family travel blog.
The Great Ocean Road (GOR) is on most itineraries when visiting Melbourne and it certainly should be on yours, but plan thoughtfully as it gets very busy. I have always been to the great Ocean Road in winter for some strange reason, so imagine my shock when I took a dear childhood friend and her daughter during the Easter holiday period. The crowds at the 12 Apostles were so bad that it took away from the enjoyment of the trip. This got me thinking how can you make the most of the GOR and avoid the crowds. So what can you do when you plan your next visit?
