I'm planning to do a few one day courses this year in Melbourne, and rather than flying over I thought I might take the bike. The plan would be to ride over one day, stay close-ish to Melbourne, ride into town for the course the next morning, head out after the course that afternoon a short way, stay the night, and then head home the next day. I’m hoping for some suggestions of where to stay for the two nights. I’m looking for somewhere cheap, with decent food that’s cheap, preferably where I can leave the bike overnight and it still be there in the morning, and not too far out from Melbourne. Country pub would be great, but I’m figuring I’ll probably be too close to Melbourne to find a country pub! I also wouldn’t want to deviate too far given it will be enough km to travel plus a day in a course, so I don’t want to make the trip any harder than it needs to be. Any thoughts and suggestions?
