I think so too, planning a trip to Tassie this year end(2nd time there). Guess I'll just spend my time around the city relaxing then. Maybe drive to Yarra Valley buy some reserved wine again.
May be up north to the gold field towns, and then to the Murray river on the NSW/VIC border (e.g. Echuca)?

I studied in Melbourne for like 6 years and I think Gippsland is a beautiful place visit. Visited the sand dunes which were super fun to climb and the beaches like squeaky beach. Visited the waterfalls too. Went to Yarra Valley for a wine tour- only about $180 for 5 different wineries and each had about 8 tasting portions. The only place I didnt manage to go and regretted not doing so was the Grampions. Now I am back in Singapore and no longer a student I have to pay for my own travels
Anyway I created a group called Travel Promotions Singapore to collate all the travel deals etc for myself and for everyoone in the group. Please join and contribute! So we can all know what the latest deals are. Any tips on saving for trips and saving during trips also appreciated I can share how I saved money while I stayed in Melbourne.

Yarra Valley each winery $0-10 for tasting only if you go on your own.

Driving at night is scary AF, i try to plan my trips so as to avoid driving at night. Especially on those mountainous windy roads. The highest chance would be hitting wild life.

you should have went when you were studying. younger means balls bigger

anyway i always believe that for long distance drive, its good to have someone next to you. best is he/she can drive.
