The first thing most people want to do when they buy a new Hyundai is to head out on a road trip to remember. That’s why we’ve put together this list of top exciting road trip options for you to explore this summer – whether you’re in a Venue, a Kona or a IONIQ – there’s a destination for everyone.
Daylesford & Hepburn Springs
Located about an hour and a half from Melbourne, Daylesford and Hepburn Springs are part of Victoria’s ‘spa country’ – a name derived from the 141 mineral springs in the area.
The ideal spot for rest and relaxation (or bush walks if that’s your thing) Daylesford and Hepburn Springs are among the most beloved tourist spots in Victoria. There are wineries, history, culture, art classes, workshops and enough book fairs to shake a stick at.
The Victorian Alps
Heard of the Victorian Alps? The perfect place for bike riding, drinking local wines, kayaking or hiking – this is the place to head if you’re looking for somewhere further afield.
At almost four hours away from Melbourne, this is a great road trip destination for those really wanting to test out the comfort of their new Hyundai – whether that’s the luxurious Tuscon or the high-performing Kona N.
Hoping to take your new Hyundai SUV for a spin along the winding, scenic Great Ocean Road? Four hours away from Melbourne and you’ll hit the iconic Twelve Apostles and just over an hour further along your journey is Port Fairy.
Port Fairy is a small town with a lot to offer. From intriguing history to a buzzing local art scene – a road trip to Port Fairy will not disappoint.
If you’re looking for a memorable road trip in Victoria, Wilson’s Prom has got it all. Just two hours and thirty minutes from Melbourne, it has wildlife, walks and the chance for a dip in Refuge Cove – ideal in warmer months. It’s a popular camping spot for a reason – so book your site ahead of time to avoid missing out.
Wilson’s Prom is the perfect place to test out Kona’s high-performing edge. The Kona’s performance is just as fun as its personality. Choose from either the 2.0L MPi 2WD with 6-speed automatic or the 1.6L Turbo GDi AWD with 7-speed dual-clutch automatic – which along with sharp throttle control and impressive torque, also allows you to get off-road to explore even further.
If you’re heading to The Grampians for your next road trip, the best place to start is at Halls Gap. Wind your way along the stunning mountains and indigenous art sites towards award-winning wineries and exceptional local produce. This road trip could be your best yet.
Just two hours from Melbourne, Phillip Island is the place to go if you want to spot fairy penguins in the wild as they make their daily walk from the sea up to the beach. Check out the township of Cowes – a great spot to hit the hay for the night before you hit the road again to your next destination.
