Three hours west of Melbourne on the Glenelg Highway. As you leave the Melbourne and hit the Western Highway, a certain sense of freedom kicks in. As you put your car to the test up and down the hills near Bacchus Marsh and the city gets left behind, that unmistakable “road trip” feeling starts to kick-in.
