I’ve been to Melbourne dozens and dozens of times, but apart from one time when I had a hastened visit to the Yarra Valley, I have never really explored beyond the city limits. I’m sure most of you have probably done the same, after all Melbourne is an enticing and fantastic city all by itself. Recently I got to spend 5 days self-driving regions I had always heard of and didn’t really think much of…how wrong I was!
