Two Ranges Drive

The Two Ranges Drive takes in the entirety of Baw Baw Shire from majesty of the Baw Baw Plateau to the rolling hills of the Strzelecki Ranges. Do the loop as one whole or take your time and get off the beaten track. Stop in at one of the quaint villages or visit one of our retail hubs. Sample some of the best food and wine in Victoria at one of the cellar doors or farm gates. Enjoy nature at its best from lush forests to flowing waterfalls. Pat an alpaca, visit a gallery, go horse riding, catch a fish, you can experience everything Baw Baw has to offer along this scenic drive and at the end of the day you can curl up in front of a roaring fire or relax under the stars in one of our many accommodation options. The beauty of the Two Ranges Drive is that you can begin it at any point along the way as it is a loop, but don’t forget to stray off the official loop as there is so much more to see and do through the middle as well.
