Autumn Splendour in the Snowy Mountains

A great alternative to the boring Hume Highway, this touring route is perfect for travellers between Sydney and Melbourne who have a little time up their sleeve to detour via the Snowy Mountains (it only adds 65 km to the journey). Coming from Melbourne, you take the Beechworth exit and literally head for the hills. The journey takes in the historic goldmining town of Beechworth; through "Man From Snowy River" country (Towong, Corryong), past the Kosciuszko Main Range and the towns of Tumbarumba and Khancoban; dams and power stations of the Snowy Mountains Scheme; the apple growing town of Batlow; before rejoining the highway at Gundagai.
