If you’re planning an extensive road trip vacation to Victoria in Australia for a few weeks, you might have made one of the best decisions this year. There are so many places to visit and things to do in this scenic state. For example, you can plan a road trip to the fairy penguin colony of Phillip Island and to the iconic Great Ocean Road to see the fabled Twelve Apostles limestone rock formation by the shore near Port Campbell. Road trips can be fairly draining after spending long hours on the road. Thus, it is imperative that you choose a comfortable accommodation to recharge your body and mind. If you happen to be planning a road trip to the locations mentioned above, have a look at our recommended Airbnb vacation rentals in the small dairy town of Simpson, to find a place to stay.
