Our favourite regional touring/drivers' roads
ONE of the great road trips in Australia for your travel bucket list must be the Great Alpine Road. It is up there with the best of them but in our eyes, it is the best of them. It is a driver’s road that ‘comes with the lot’. (Josie Withers photo - right) is a section of the Great Alpine Road between Harrietville and Mount Hotham
C546, or the Great River Road, is one of Australia’s great drivers' and riders’ roads. It is a cracker. It snakes its way almost its entire 156 kilometre length from Albury-Wodonga to Corryong following the route of the Murray River which separates New South Wales from Victoria.
IF you are travelling between Melbourne and Sydney - or vice versa - and you are not in a rush, there is an alternate route between Wangaratta and Gundagai - or again, vice versa - than heading straight along the Hume Freeway. It is called the Snowy Valleys Way, a rival to such popular tourist routes as the Great Ocean Road.
