Driving North East Victoria
and the Southern Riverina

. . . where every road allows you to take the long way home

THOUSANDS of kilometres of uncrowded touring routes and interesting back roads criss-cross the popular tourist destination 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, as it's more about the journey than the destination, and our top four regional drives - plus dozens of other favourites - allows you to do just that. Check out all our regional drives by navigating the website menu - Photo: 2024 Nissan Nismo Z
