The iPhone app for a great Victorian weekend away:
Melbourne Getaways
Download it now from iTunes | Google Play
Melbourne Getaways is a vibrant guide containing over 200 reviews of accommodation, attractions, dining and shopping within a few hours' journey of Melbourne.

It covers Apollo Bay, Ballarat, Castlemaine, the Dandenong Ranges, Daylesford/Hepburn Springs, Geelong, the High Country, Phillip Island, Queenscliff, Woodend and the Yarra Valley. 

Rather than attempting to be a comprehensive directory of these destinations, it's instead a diverse selection of places which author Tim Richards has personally visited, stayed at, eaten at or inspected over his years as a travel writer based in Melbourne.

The recommendations are designed to stimulate your appetite for some time away - a day, a weekend or even longer - in the beautiful countryside of Victoria, Australia.

Your purchase will include regular future updates packed with more items of interest, and the app is only about the price of a cup of coffee.
