Stop off at Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery for a memorable break. You can enjoy free chocolate tastings, watch more than 250 chocolate products be produced, buy what takes your fancy and relax in the all-day cafe serving up a host of treats and drinks. A huge outdoor set-up offers plenty of room to move when you’re done, too! Alternatively, you could visit Innocent Bystander for great wine and local produce.

Consider pulling in at the Puffing Billy Cafe or Earthly Pleasures Cafe for lunch or a coffee. There’s also SkyHigh in the Dandenong Ranges for great cafe food with a view.

When you make it to Phillip Island, check out The Nobbies boardwalk for a stroll that comes with spectacular, postcard views that will make you reach for your phone to take a photo.

Enhance your MotoGP™ visit by staying at Phillip Island or close by. Accommodation is available at the circuit or across the island.

Ride Highlight

Chum Creek Road (C724) from Toolangi to Healesville is an amazing 20km stretch of twists and turns through forest-lined roads, and less busy than the popular Black Spur Drive nearby.
