Four wheel drive enthusiasts will get a better experience of the state's great outdoors thanks to Victoria's Iconic 4WD Adventures and track classification system.
Launching the system today at Werribee, Environment and Climate Change Minister Gavin Jennings said Victoria's Iconic 4WD Adventures completed the Victorian Government's $4 million 4WD program and included the establishment of six iconic 4WD adventures across the state to suit the most novice driver through to the most experienced.
"Victoria's Iconic 4WD Adventures project provides upgrades to routes as well as explanatory signage and guides that clearly describe the difficulty of the terrain using the same type of symbols that mark ski runs in the Alpine regions."
"Amongst other scenery, the routes take in the rugged mountain peaks and dramatic rock formations on the Grampians Drive, stunning coastal views, tall forests and waterfalls on the Otways Drive, the history and heritage of the High Country on the Wonnangatta Drive as well as the legendary Snowy River country on the Snowy River Drive," Mr Jennings said.
Parks Victoria, the Department of Sustainability and Environment and Four Wheel Drive Victoria are proud to deliver these new routes, supporting local tourism and assisting people to plan and enjoy some of our most beautiful yet inaccessible regions.
