Campervan Driving Routes Australia

The Great Southern Touring Route offers the best of Australia’s beaches, coastline, forests, countryside, history and heritage - all in a flexible, compact, driving package. Located in the South Eastern state of Victoria, the route starts at the state’s capital, Melbourne. The circular route can be taken in any direction or with side tours. The total distance is around 800 kilometres, depending on side trips. Good standard inland and coastal roads allow for many touring variations.

By travelling along the route, visitors will discover the excitement and heritage of the gold rush in the Goldfields and Ballarat; marvel at the grandeur of the Grampians mountain range and National Park; the majesty of the iconic Twelve Apostles and experience one of the world’s greatest drives along the Great Ocean Road between Geelong and Warrnambool.

The region features unique Australian wild fauna such as kangaroos on golf courses, koalas in gum trees, emus on volcanic plains, kookaburras in unexpected places, whale calves close to shore and dolphins surfing breaks.
