Gourmet food, a history written in gold and stunning scenery make the Great Alpine Road one of the great drives of Victoria.

Story By Don Fuchs

The Great Alpine Road, linking the rural towns of Wangaratta and Bairnsdale, Vic, winds its way across the dramatic spine of the Australian Alps. Sealed for its entire 308 kilometres, it can be driven comfortably in five hours.
