The route we took and the distances were:
Adelaide to Kingston SE.
Kingston SE to Mt Gambier
Mt Gambier to Port Fairy
Port Fairy to Port Campbell
Port Campbell to Apollo Bay
Apollo Bay to Wye River
Wye River to Geelong
Geelong to Ashley Gardens Braybrook, Melbourne
Total distance was 1025 km / 637 miles. The longest stretch was to Mt Gambier which took about 6 hours and from Adelaide to Kingston SE there isn't really anything to stop for. (In our opinion)
We will see if we can find the camp site names we stopped at and post them on here for you, we did try to book them in advance and went for sites with en-suite shower and toilet facilities which were great just reversed in and connected the electric up. So easy.
We had a fantastic time and sure you will also, we look forward to reading the story of your trip on here one day.

Does anyone know if you need to stop at caravan parks or can you park other places, the reason I'm asking is because I've phoned round a few caravan parks and they want you to book a minimum stay of 4 nights and we don't want to be in the same place for that long, we werte thinking of taking 2 days to get there and 2 days to get back and 3 days in and around Melbourne and we don't mind "roughing it" there and back.
Thanks for the info so far
We only did over night stops in most of the sites we visited.
