Woke up early at 6am feeling chilly, the temperature outside Melbourne was about 10 degrees Celsius. The sunrise in Melbourne begins at 6am and the whole city brightens up outside my hotel room’s window. We had our breakfast buffet in The Swanston Grand Mercure’s ground floor. The breakfast served by the hotel was rather simple and light. In general, they have a variety of toasted breads, omelette, hot porridge, nutty cereals and fresh cut fruits.
With our luggage packed and ready, the reception was informed to get our 7-seater KIA Carnival MPV by 8am so that we can set off timely to the following destinations in the state of Victoria: Geelong, Torquay, Lorne and Apollo Bay. The total time travelled with stops at multiple attractions was 8 hours.
