An Adelaide to Melbourne Road trip is one of the best Australian Road trips you can do.
The route is full of amazing scenery, and takes you to lesser-known parts of Australia, that you otherwise might not see, this is one road trip that you have to do!
An Adelaide to Melbourne drive or vice versa is an extension of the Great Ocean Road trip, which is a coastal road in Victoria. This is a scenic route, and worth doing, but including this as part of a longer trip from or to Adelaide is better.
