Best Rides Victoria

Great Ocean Road
The Great Ocean Road should be top of your riding bucket list. This ride of 243 kilometres is along the stunning coastline of Victoria's southwest, the road is considered one of the best motorcycle routes in the world. Stretch out your time in the saddle and continue along the Great Southern Touring Route to take in the Grampians and Goldfields on your return. For a shorter run, take a spin Around the Bay, an ideal day trip around the Mornington and Bellarine peninsulas, or stretch out a trip to Phillip Island's Moto GP with the Bays and Surf Coast Touring Route.
Black Spur Drive
Sweeping turns thru a Rainforest, this 28 kilometre ride really delivers. Start this ride at Healesville.
Linking the Yarra Valley with the mountain areas around Marysville is the road known as the Black Spur Drive, which passes between Healesville with Narbethong on the Maroondah Highway. Famous for its heady scenery of spectacular tall forests, the Black Spur winds its way up the Great Dividing Range.
Great Alpine Road
Reach higher ground on the Great Alpine Road, Australia's highest year-round accessible sealed road. The 339-kilometre road stretches from Wangaratta in the northeast right across to Metung on the Gippsland Lakes. The most popular leg for motorcyclists is between Bright and Omeo, especially around Moto Gp time of year.
