Hi we are driving from Sydney down the Hume highway to Melbourne in late Dec early Jan. We plan to spend a few days in Melbourne so hubby can see the cricket and then would love to spend a week or so at a holiday beachside area. There will be 6 of us including 4 kids 10-17. I realise that it will be expensive. I am familar with the places in NSW and QLD but am unfamilar with the best places to stay in Victoria. We dont mind driving a few hours out of melbourne but I am at a loss as to what areas to look in. The only place I know of is Lakes Entrance. Any ideas would be very welcomed. Thanks.
