The state of Victoria contains some of the finest motorcycling routes in the world, with Melbourne being ideally placed to get the best out of what’s on offer. The Great Ocean Road is arguably the most impressive coastal ride on the planet, but that doesn’t even scratch the surface. Whilst just the ocean road itself is enough to draw people to the area from all corners of the globe, add in the spectacular lookouts and waterfalls of the Grampians National Park, the huge scenery and gently meandering roads of the Victoria Highlands, towering peaks of the Snowy Mountains and the old world charm of the Goldfields and you’ve got motorcycling nirvana!
Victoria’s capital Melbourne, sits securely on the banks of 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 boutique and speciality shopping, a passion for the culinary arts and a flourishing penchant for the artistic.
Restored and remarkably well preserved nineteenth-century architecture, built on the back of the discovery of gold, provides a heady reminder of a wildly prosperous age, whilst beautifully tended parks and gardens present a therapeutic respite from the heady pace of city life.
Melbourne is a marvellously simple city to get around, most things are within walking distance of the centre and a widespread system of efficient and cost effective trams, is ready and waiting to sweep you off your feet and ease your journey to wherever you want to go. If you need help planning your time in Melbourne, just ask! We’d be happy to help!
Perhaps the ultimate feather in the state of Victoria’s cap, especially where motorcyclists are concerned, is the ‘Great Ocean Road’. Famously regarded as one of the most scenic coastal roads in the world, words can’t adequately describe the wonderful scenery on this 280km stretch of asphalt. It’s within easy reach of Melbourne too, which makes it all the more difficult to resist its charms! Every motorcyclist should ride this road at least once in their life!
It wends 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 truly fantastic and invigorating ride with something for everyone to enjoy, be it the ride itself or the fascinating towns and attractions along the way.
Melbourne is also the gateway to Tasmania, as it’s home to the ferry port. There is some fantastic riding to be had in the oft overlooked state of Tasmania, but it’s even better when combined with some of the highlights of Victoria and the South East.
Everything can be customised to suit your individual preferences, it’s as simple as just asking!
