Driving the great touring roads of North East
Victoria and the Southern Riverina

We can't all have the Nurburgring, Stelvio Pass, or Transfagarasan Highway in our backyard, but our little corner of the world is full of great touring roads, some of which you must drive at least once in your lifetime - Darryl Starr, Albury-Wodonga

Regional drives

THOUSANDS of kilometres of interesting roads crisscross North East Victoria and the Southern Riverina, Australia's premier inland playground. The region has all the essential ingredients for the perfect road trip - stunning, ever-changing scenery, incredible attractions, welcoming cities, towns, and villages, and great, uncrowded, touring roads. So, what are you waiting for. Fill your tank and start exploring the roads we've been driving and have come to know and love for the past 54 years. - Photo: Destination NSW

Our top three regional touring drives are real gems
One of them - arguably - is the best in the country 

THERE'S plenty of scenic views that can be experienced from all these great drives and picking out the best was no easy task. It’s all about personal preference when it comes to enjoying the surrounding landscape, but our region definitely has something for everyone.
