Thomas said to take 3 days up to Sidney. I would presume he knows the "scenic route". I would plan at least a 6 day outing to get to the rally after getting over the jet lag. I won't be back in Oz anytime soon and unlikely with such an enthusiastic posse as the BSA rally goers so I have to make the most of it. The wife and I can't wait til our big trip down under!

If you can manage 4 days, how about:

Day 1:
Melbourne -> Torquay
Torquay - Apollo Bay via Great Ocean Road (lovely ride on a week day without the weekend warriors)
Apollo Bay -> Colac

Day 2:
Colac -> Ballarat. Check out the Goldfields tourist stuff
Ballarat -> Heathcote (some lovely back roads through the hills)
Heathcote -> Echuca. Check out the old paddle steamers, maybe book a river cruise

Day 3:
Echuca -> Hay (lots of not much, but gives an idea of scale smile
Hay -> Temora (Supermarine Spitfire at the aircraft museum, but not sure if it's open)

Day 4:
Temora -> Bathurst. Do a lap or 2 of the Mt Panorama race circuit. There's a 60 km/hr speed limit and policed heavily
Bathurst -> Lithgow
Lithgow -> Kurrajong -> Richmond (Bells Line of Road, lovely on a bike)
Richmond -> Penrith.

Thomas will know Victoria much better than I do, since I really only go to the All British Rally and BSA Nationals. He is sure to have some great suggestions.

If you're limited for time, cut out the Great Ocean Road (which would be a shame) and go direct from Echuca to Temora.

We're taking a similar route home from Halls Gap via Echuca, with a couple of detours.

I just found out that my work has scheduled a mandatory event during the week of the rally... mad. I've been looking forward to this ever since it was announced. It's a good thing they pay me well. I'm going to miss hanging out with all of you folks. frown
