Start on Great Ocean Road and then follow the coast. You'll see the beauty of the sea, stay close to stunning, pristine beaches, visit seaside hamlets and see the majestic monoliths protruding from the sea. Make this a day trip and pack a picnic. Stop along the way at one of the many beaches to enjoy lunch and take in the incredible views.
Enjoy The Beauty Of Nature
Since you are close to the ocean on a holiday to Hampton, you'll certainly want to visit with some of the local marine life. Just a short drive from your Hampton accommodation rentals you'll find the Melbourne Aquarium. Take the kids to the Melbourne Aquarium where you can experience four levels of billabongs, rock pool, and a transparent tunnel. Inside, you'll be up close to sharks, giant stingrays, scorpions and even bird eating spiders. Of course, the star of the show here is the worlds' largest crab. This is a crab that is so big that you have to see it to believe it. After a day at the Aquarium, take the kids back to your Hampton holiday rentals to rest up and get ready for an evening of fun as well.
Relax On The Beach
Hampton Beach is a great choice, especially if you've brought the family along on holiday. Here you'll find safe swimming, wide stretches of sandy beach and several groynes extending out to the sea. During the day, relax on the beach, swim in the ocean or even take a walk along the paved walking trail. The surrounding area is beautifully landscaped with grassy strips and palm trees. On the southern end of Hampton's coastline you'll find Picnic Point. This is the boundary between Hampton and Sandringham which juts into Port Phillip Bay. There's a boat harbour, pier and gardens to enjoy here.

You'll save money by staying in a rental home or apartment, while having plenty of space to spread out. The family won't feel cramped for space in a comfortable and affordable Hampton holiday rental.
