Victoria’s state capital of Melbourne is located near the centre of the state’s southern coast making it an ideal base for a Victorian road trip. While there are longer drives you can do from there, the city also lends itself to shorter day trips and weekend breaks—here are ten road trips from Melbourne to get you started.
Further afield it is all about the Great Ocean Road — one of the most beautiful and famous road trips in all of Australia. While you can drive it in as little as 48 hours, if you have more time and would like to make it up as you go, here are some of the highlights.
Don’t forget Victoria’s interior though, with the Dandenong Ranges being an ever-popular crowd-pleasing road trip. If you’d like to mix up a bit of the coast and the hinterland, consider a short break from Geelong to The Otways.
