Melbourne has some of the best driving routes in the world. The Great Ocean Road is arguably the most impressive coastal drive on the planet. That would be enough to draw people worldwide but add the lookouts and waterfalls of the Grampians, the huge scenery of the Victoria Highlands and Snowy Mountains and the old world charm of the goldfields and it's driving heaven!

Self Drive Tours include great accommodation and a detailed itinerary with maps and information that will take you along the best routes the area has to offer!

We can tailor the tours just for you (number of days, accommodation before and after etc.) and so ask us to adjust things to suit you. A common combination is to join parts of both tours below. For more information just select a tour from the menu right.

Melbourne - Capital of Victoria

Victoria's capital, Melbourne, sits on the Yarra River and around the shores of Port Phillip Bay. Lauded for its sense of style and elegance, Melbourne boasts glamorous festivals and events, plenty of shopping, a passion for eating and drinking, and a flourishing interest in the arts. Restored and preserved nineteenth-century architecture, built following the discovery of gold, provides a heady reminder of a prosperous age, while beautifully tended parks and gardens present a therapeutic respite from the pace of city life. A very easy city to get around, most things are within walking distance of the centre, and a widespread system of trams is ready and waiting to sweep you off your tired feet. If you need help planning your time in Melbourne, just ask, we'd be happy to help!

The Great Ocean Road

Perhaps the premier ‘pull’ of Victoria, especially where drivers are concerned, is the ‘Great Ocean Road’. Famously regarded as one of the most scenic coastal drives in the world, words can't adequately describe the wonderful scenery on this 280km stretch of road west of Melbourne. Everyone should drive this road at least once in their life! It ribbons its way from Torquay in the east along the rugged and beautiful coastline taking in such spectacles as ‘The Twelve Apostles’, ‘London Bridge’ and ‘Loch Ard Gorge’ before finally coming to an end just west of Peterborough. A fantastic drive with something for everyone to enjoy, be it the drive itself, or the fascinating towns and attractions along the way.

Of course Melbourne is also the place to start if you're planning on visiting Tasmania, an oft overlooked gem of the region.
