Maybe cross the strait , down to Recherche across to Port Davye and Macquarie Harbour then up and over to Kind thence to Kangaroo, do SA then back along coast via Melbourne to NSW. Have to check it out as to winds.
That's all doable in the prevailing westerlies/south westerlies towards the end of spring. I'd have thought (without checking) that you might be best going straight south round the bottom, back up the west coast to SA and east along the Vic coastline. Depends what sort of weather you get down the bottom though and there is no shelter to speak of between SA and Melbourne..

Any ideas, Rohan?
