Keep on reading to check out our top 3 list of the perfect road trips for you to take around Victoria with your PEUGEOT this April.
Cruise along the Wilson’s Promontory National Park
Affectionately called “the Prom”, Wilson’s Promontory National Park is one of Victoria’s most-loved road-trip destinations. Known as Yiruk and Wamoon to the Aboriginal people who inhabited the land for thousands of years before European colonisation, the Prom is an amalgamation of scenic, picturesque landscapes that are sure to take your breath away.
Hop in your PEUGEOT and take in the sights of spectacular beaches with enchanting names such as Fairy Cove and Whisky Bay, then keep going to marvel at the vast, panoramic ranges of Mount Bishop and Mount Oberon. Finish off your trip with a ride down to the lovely village of Loch where you can find many places to wine and dine against a nineteenth-century backdrop.
Hop on towards Phillip Island
Only 90 minutes away from the Melbourne CBD, Phillip Island is an easy seaside getaway to reach if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of urban everyday life. A popular tourist destination for over 150 years, Phillip Island has much to offer with its spectacular white sandy beaches, idyllic nature reserves, and dazzling views of the stars in the Milky Way.
Start off in your PEUGEOT by escaping to Cape Woolamai and witness the marvellous coastal scenery that you’ll definitely want to post onto Instagram, then drive along Cowes to be delighted by the scrumptious food and refreshing beverages offered at the local seaside eateries. End your road trip with the opportunity to get up close and personal (safely of course!) with the iconic Phillip Island penguins during the nightly Penguin Parade to witness them waddle home from their day in the ocean.
Explore the wonders of the Murray River
The Murray River stretches its legs 2,700 km from the mountainous regions of north-eastern Victoria to the city of Adelaide in South Australia, making it one of the world’s longest navigable rivers. Discover history as you cruise along with the mighty Murray, and learn about its role in Indigenous and European colonialist history as a home and a trading route, while also taking in the best natural views that this country has to offer.
Head to the Barmah National Park and see if you can recognise the iconic Australian animals in abundance. Keep on moving and get ready to behold the marvel that is Lake Tyrell, a 120,000-year-old salt lake that’ll make you wonder if you were still on Earth due to its spectacular reflective surface. Finally, drive up in your PEUGEOT to Swan Hill to soak in some sun while you step back in time at the Pioneer Settlement and grab a nice glass (or two) of wine at the family-owned and operated Andrew Peace Wines.
