Take the long way home
. . . as it's more about the journey than the destination

THOUSANDS of kilometres of uncrowded touring routes and interesting back roads criss-cross the popular tourist destinations of North East Victoria and the Southern Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia's premier inland playground.

When it comes to driving, we prefer to take the long way home, and our top four regional drives -plus dozens of other favourites - allows you to do just that.

Whether you're driving roads less travelled, tasting local cuisine or magnificent wines, visiting a museum, an historic site, or playing in the snow, from the mountains to the Murray to the Murrumbidgee, we've got it covered. 

So, what are you waiting for? Fill your tank/charge your battery and come exploring with us. You won't be disappointed. Photo credit: Thomas Wielecki
