In this video ride review Andy explores some
of Victoria’s back roads and finds a couple of Victoria’s
motorcycling treasures along the way. Ever wondered where the
World’s Tallest Redgum Tree was?
Or, how about climbing to the top of one of
Australia’s best rock faces on your motorcycle?
This route through the Wimmera region is a
cracker and highly recommended. In fact if you’ve never been
there, a trip just to see the view from Mount Arapiles is worth
organising. It blew my mind the first time I visited and it
continues to amaze every motorcyclist I take there when they
work out they can ride to the top and only walk 50 metres.

Thought I’d give this route a go when
heading from Melbourne to Mt Gambier instead of the same old
If coming from Melbourne you must go to Halls Gap & take
the turn off to Horsham. You will not be disappointed. Terrific
views from Mt Arapiles. As for the Red Gum it is down the dirt
road, Glenmia Rd. I only saw one sign for it. Watch out at the
first corner. After going left it is then a very sharp right
hander. Did 80/100 kph on a C50 cruiser. Just stay off the
centre.The rain started as soon as I got there but it was stil
worth getting wet. An aweinspiring tree indeed.
