Work your way from one of the world’s most liveable cities through St Kilda and down Beach Road until it intersects with the Nepean Highway at Mordialloc. Cross Pompei’s Bridge and head south towards Frankston and Mornington where the Nepean Highway becomes the B110. From there, head to Tooradin and Phillip Island.
Consider a detour via the famous Mornington Peninsula to explore areas such as winery region Red Hill, also home to popular Italian restaurant The Epicurean. The nearby Arthurs Seat lookout provides great views.
SPOKES TIP: It has been a tragic start to the year on Victorian roads, with 172 people losing their lives in the first seven months of 2019, compared to 114 in 2018.
Hungry? The Tooradin Bakery is well worth a pitstop, serving some of the best pies, sausage rolls and pastries you can find. Alternatively, head straight to Phillip Island and explore the thriving cafe scene there, including The Store and The Cape Kitchen.
SPOKES TIP: Motorcycle riders don’t have the protection of a vehicle, so when the unexpected happens at high speeds it is rarely survivable.
Once you’re in Phillip Island, the Inline 4 Cafe is a motorcycle-themed restaurant that is popular with MotoGP™ fans.
There’s also plenty to see around your visit to the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit, like The Nobbies boardwalk, Cape Woolamai and the Pyramid Rock lookout.

Detour south past Arthurs Seat towards Cape Schanck on Boneo Road, enjoy the coastal scenery and flowing curves between Cape Schanck and Flinders, be wary of increased numbers of traffic and pedestrians during sunny weather.
