Sounds like a fun adventure ahead for you.

Head for St Kilda beach when you arrive in Melbourne, it gets absolutely packed with people and is near the city center.  I used to live near it and went there regularly, sometimes there is more people than sand ?

That's somewhere I'd like to detect, although they've had a bit of trouble with gang activity there at night lately so it might be a bit risky and during the day it'd be too busy unless it was raining.

Good luck Mitchel, I’m sure the Victorian boys will look after you. 

My favourite spot in Victoria is panning in Reedy Ck near Beechworth, gems and gold ??. ( I did a YouTube vid there a few years ago, should be able to find it with google)

Being May it might be a bit nipply to have too many beach goers.

Have you ever driven on the Left hand side of the road before Mitchell?  If not, maybe don't head directly through the second most populated city in the country  ?   Sorry Phrunt  ?

rent a vehicle and head to Bendigo area

That's a good idea.  Are you planning on Hotel/Motel/Caravan Park for the entire trip or doing some bush camping?

What machines are you bringing?

      There is a new show coming to TV called Aussie Metal Detectives.
      And they use Equinoxes 🙂
      Introducing the Aussie Metal Detectives - Leon Deschamps and Shayne Thomson. Two Aussie blokes digging for the greatest treasure of them all, the lost stories of the men and women who built Australia.
      I'll be watching this one!

      It was in relation to Vistors to Australia not being aware of our large distance here.

      This little thing actually kills it!
      My cousin and I have been using the pulse dive in salt water exclusively and although it has a small coil, the ability to swing this thing like mad hugely make up for that fact!
      So far I’ve found the design/ quality of the PulseDive to be very ideal for salt water hunting.  The machine simply beeps and buzzes in your hand, is easily audible  through the water and there is practically no maintenance other than just cleaning the rubber seal/gasket every now and then but there is no knobs, cables, headphones or anything that I can see deteriorating on this detector.
      Depth is definitely surprising when digging targets but still decent in air tests with a nickel/10c Aussie coin hitting at 4” air test and depending on minerals in the sand it’ll hit deeper 5-6” even due to its non-motion nature.
      Anyone who wants to try water detecting I highly recommend trying the PulseDive, the small size and lack of headphones make it ridiculously convenient and even stealthy if you want to be discrete or are a bit shy! 
      This isn’t really a review but just a quick mention of what I think is important to know about the machine 👍
      Here is the gold we’ve found on the last few outings 👊👊👊

      Adam,
      The next time you go prospecting or fishing just stay at home.

      Erlistoun Station has a new phone number 9031 3954. If no one is there to answer please leave a message. The new managers name is Butch Shaw.
      Also as of the coming Tuesday Aug 1st, an aerial muster will be taking place also utilizing ground crews in 4x4's quads, bikes and numerous other mad max look alike vehicles.
      Please, if on the station it is imperative for your safety and ours that we know where you are. These are not tame cows from a petting zoo, they are wild scrub cattle that will kill you.
      Also be aware GSDU are active on this and the surrounding station checking miners rights, permits and compliance. Two men, residents from NSW and Tas faced Leonora court today for illegal mining (on an EL without a section 40E permit)
      Cheers,
      Steve
