Thankfully we are in the last leg of winter and in Melbourne that mean getting ready for the AFL finals and the Spring Racing Carnival.
Spring in Melbourne is great time to do some touring so why not take some extra time and rent a car if you are visiting for the AFL finals or Spring Racing Carnival. The spring blossoms are an amazing sight and you will find visiting the Countryside a visually stimulating experience. Car rental in Melbourne gets busy during this time so booking early Is advised. If you are a horse racing fan, car hire will get you to Victoria’s country race tracks and for a full guide to country racing in Victoria go to www.countryracing.com.au
If you just want a quiet break and experience the spring blossoming in North East Victoria, here is a taste of what you can see. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5M8123Wz80s. We recommend Tourism Victoria’s website for an overview of the region and great accommodation options. http://www.travelvictoria.com.au/experiences/drivingroutes/greatalpineroad/
