Victorian summer road trip ideas!
Updated: Oct 4, 2022
Summer is finally here! And after such a tough year, many Victorians are heading off on some much needed and deserved breaks.
A road trip is a perfect way to spend your time off, especially in our beautiful home state.
So, to help you decide where to go, we’ve put together some of our favourite Victorian summer road trip locations.
The Great Ocean Road
The Great Ocean Road is full of beachy, small towns such as Lorne and Aireys Inlet, so you’ll be spoilt for choices of where to stay. You can break your drive into days to make the most of the towns, or you can plough ahead to see the incredible Twelve Apostles.
The Mornington Peninsula
The Mornington Peninsula has it all - beaches, vineyards, beautiful towns, scenery. Our favourite towns include Rosebud, Sorrento and Flinders, though no matter where you go in the peninsula, you’re bound to enjoy it.
For an extra relaxing trip, spend a day at the Peninsula Hot Springs.
The Yarra Valley
The scenic region of The Yarra Valley is scattered with world-class wineries and restaurants. So close, you can escape for the day or the weekend. Just make sure someone in your party is happy to be the designated driver!
The Dandenong Ranges
Only an hour out of the city, The Dandenong Ranges is perfect for a short road trip. There’s something for everyone: The 1,000 Steps, quaint towns, yummy cafes and restaurants, beautiful scenery, waterfalls and hikes abound.
Don’t forget your tyres!
Inspect your tyres well ahead of your departure date. The last thing you’ll want is to be stuck with a flat or blown out tyre. It’s also better for your safety to ensure your tyres are up to the task of a road trip, no matter how big or small especially if you haven’t driven your car much in the last few months.
If you’re unsure if your tyres need servicing, then please come see us. We can assess, service and or replace your tyres if needed.
We hope our suggestions have helped you plan your Victorian summer road trip. And remember to come to see us for your tyre maintenance, servicing and replacement needs.
