the world's most spectacular roads

South Face Road is a mountain road with a length of 29,9 km located in the Great Dividing Range, in Victoria, Australia. The mountain climbs up to the Mount Baw Baw Alpine Resort at an elevation of 1,478m above the sea level.

Don’t rely on your GPS! Some GPS systems don’t work well in the region. This is a not sealed road. But is wider and less windy than Mount Baw Baw Tourist Road, the other access road to Mount Baw Baw Alpine Resort. Be prepared for all conditions as the weather can change rapidly in the Alps. Avoid driving up in bad weather, ensure you have warm, waterproof clothing and footwear and a tube of sunscreen.

 

The unpaved sections of the road can be impassable when wet. South Face Road is a beautiful drive through the National Park then up narrow and windy roads to Mt Baw Baw.The road is not so curvy for those who don’t like the windy roads.

  

Due its unique location and the climb in elevation over thousands of feet, and passing through remote areas, it is important when driving in these conditions to be prepared. Fill your tank up before heading up to Mt Baw Baw. Fuel is NOT available on the mountain! Chains must be carried during the declared snow season. Don’t forget to add anti-freeze to diesel fuel. Erica is your last stop for chains. Call ahead for opening times.  Make sure you plan where you will fill up your fuel tank before heading up the mountain (there is no petrol station on mountain!).
