Hit the road between Melbourne and Sydney, following the scenic southern and eastern Victorian coastline, meandering through lush Gippsland or heading inland through the historic Goldfields. Make the most of your trip by travelling at your own pace and choose what works for you from our suggested itineraries.

Experience the beauty of the coastline first-hand over seven days on the Coastal Drive. Wander through national parks, see native wildlife, and cool off at white sandy beaches on the way. Tempt the tastebuds with seafood caught fresh from the ocean and savour local wines to match.

Venture onto the inland route from the coast for the return leg of your journey, rolling across the picturesque green hills of West Gippsland. Or mix it up by exploring the food-loving, history-laden Murray, Goldfields, and Daylesford & the Macedon Ranges regions on a reversal of the four-day Sydney–Melbourne Heritage Drive.
