DRIVING ADVENTURES: 3 Day Tour – Victorian High Country 7- 9 March 2017
It is time to take on some of the best roads in the country and some of the best kept secrets that Victoria has to offer. We keep well away from the heavy traffic and the Highways and take you to some beautiful locations, great country pubs and a couple of special cafes. There is plenty of time for stops, which you will want so you can photograph this amazing country. Bring your favourite car, the roads are all in good to great condition and bitumen all the way. 98 octane is plentiful along the way and the roads will make you remember why you love your car so much. Dinners are still being organised but will be in line with our mantra of ” Great Roads – Good Bottle of Red – Soft Bed”.
Day 1. – 306 Km
We'll meet at the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie just out of Yarra Glen (great coffee and chocolate is always a good option). We then take in a couple of famous stretches around Healesville before heading deep into the ranges and a couple of roads you probably haven’t experienced before. The highlight is a very special road that leads us into our overnight stop in Mansfield. Dinner is at fabulous restaurant that really shows off the best of the local beef.
Day 2. – 352 Km
This is a day to remember. Leaving Mansfield we take a glorious drive into the King Valley home of some great wineries and the gourmet village of Milawa. There is time to look around the villages of Myrtleford and Bright before heading into the Alps and our home for the night in Falls Creek
Day 3. – 217 Km
The trick with a 3 day tour is to have the drives get better each day. Day 2 is a hard act to follow but this is a pearl. We head into New South Wales on an amazing and empty stretch of tortured bitumen that drops us into the Murray Valley. There is plenty more great driving through some beautiful scenery on little back roads into Albury. I have chosen this route to allow those from New South Wales a head-start on their trip home while making it not to an arduous trip back to Melbourne.
Cost of the 3 day tour is only $1,100/couple and includes very comfortable accommodation as well as a comprehensive roads book and Garmin Sat-Nav units to keep you on track. David will be there to smooth the way and to keep everything on track. Bookings are now open, just contact David to secure your place. He will organise a schedule for payment and keep you informed of developments. As always if you have any questions, please call.
