I recently had the pleasure of a road trip in regional Victoria and visited the beautiful North East Area. Towns such as Rutherglen, Benalla, Wangaratta, Glenrowan, Bright, Beechworth, Milawa and Eildon where high on our travel wishlist!  I was working in the region but decided to extend my stay and play tourist. I travel alot, mainly internationally, so I was quite excited about exploring some of our own beautiful backyard, Australia. I certainly was not disappointed! One of the first things I discovered was how easy this region is to access. I picked up a rental car at Melbourne airport and... Read More
