The 142km road snakes its way along the ridge of the Strzelecki Ranges providing stunning views across the Latrobe City. Driving along the road you will be engulfed in cool temperate rainforest and surrounded by towering trees and then emerge into sunlight for another breathtaking view of a sweeping valley more spectacular than the last. Much of the road is unsealed and it is advisable that you have a map to help guide you on your journey along the Grand Ridge Road.
Places of interest along the way include Tarra Bulga National Park noted for its lush green fern gullies, towering mountain ash and the famous suspension bridge. Located in the foot hills of the Strzelecki Ranges is the small country town of Boolarra which plays host to the Boolarra Folk Festival each year and has accommodation available if peace and tranquillity is what you desire. Mirboo North marks the approximate half way point of the 132km journey. Visit the Grand Ridge Brewery, sample locally produced beer and have a hot meal or try a pie at one of the local bakeries. The Dalliance Chocolaterie & Providore is a must for chocolate lovers!
