Best 4x4 tracks near Melbourne, Vic

By 4X4 Australia staff, 21 Jun 2019 VIC

Best 4x4 tracks near Melbourne Vic feature

Break up the day-to-day grind and disappear down some 4x4 tracks close to Melbourne.

NEED a time-out from footy talk and skinny lattes? There are a bunch of great off-road tracks not too far from Melbourne CBD.

In fact, Lerderberg State Park is only 70-odd kilometres away from the city and makes for a great afternoon trip. Stretch your legs a big further and the Otways and Grampians NP make for great weekend destinations.

We’ve only listed a handful, so let us know of the ones we’ve missed in the comments section below.
