The Great Ocean Road

As soon as your wheels hit asphalt, you'll realise just how special the Great Ocean Road really is. The route twists and turns, hugging the picturesque cliffs as it winds a sinuous path along the coast. Curve after sweeping curve are seamlessly stitched together, almost purposely designed to give maximum enjoyment to any motorcycle riders that are lucky enough to be there.

There are plenty of small coastal towns to stop for a break and a coffee, serving up fantastic ocean lookouts along with the great refreshments. The lovely Otway Ranges provide a lush backdrop to the quaint towns when the road darts inland away from the coast. It takes longer than you might expect to ride along this gem of a road, there's simply so much to see.

The 12 Apostles

Every motorcyclist should ride this road at least once in their life!

The Grampians National Park
The ancient hills of the Grampians National Park make for an awesome spectacle as you ride toward them. This area of granite highlands is jam packed with wildlife, superb lookouts and beautiful waterfalls. The visitor centre at Halls Gap can provide all the information you'll need for getting the best out of your time there and will give you a great overview of the area, ensuring you get to see everything you want during your visit.

By the time you've ridden the roads in the park, taken a short walk to the two main lookouts and perhaps trekked to the base of one of the thundering waterfalls, you'll need at least a half day to absorb what's on offer, but will probably long to spend more time lost in the atmosphere of the national park.

Goldfields

Goldfields
Returning to Melbourne via the Goldfields region of Victoria to take in the quaint, old fashioned towns of Castlemaine and Daylesford, with their brilliant bakeries and cafes. It's unsurprisingly Australia's premier gold heritage region, although the chances of you making a fortune are fairly slim it's enough just to admire the grand street-scapes and historic architecture. A welcome chance to wind down after the excitement of the Great Ocean Road and stunning natural beauty of the Grampians National Park, before arriving back in Melbourne.

There's no better city to return to than Melbourne after a week of invigorating motorcycle riding. If you'd like to take advantage of what Melbourne has to offer and stay a little longer, why not let us organise accommodation at a superb city centre hotel?
