Bush Drive in Victoria Australia
See a bush drive in my own state of Victoria. About one hour drive away to the bush environment of Australia.
Take a drive in the bush of country Victoria on a warm summer's day. See the trees and scrub as you drive along the narrow road. Feel the bumps.
Can you see any wildlife around? Can you see kangaroos? At the arrival point in the bush, there are kangaroos. So, they could be out there watching as you drive by.
Be absorbed in a drive through the bush in country Victoria.

We enjoy wildlife drives, and to see kangaroos, would be cool.
That sounds like a cool experience, Julie. Hope you travel to Australia
My dream to visit Australia one day. So sad to hear of all the recent events.
Thank you for your concern Amanda. Hope you get to travel to Australia
What an amazing drive through the bush. I would love to see a kangaroo in the wild.
Thank you Jordin. Hope you travel to Australia
I was waiting for a Kangaroo to jump out or something!
I’ve got some video of one in the middle of the road, Wendy.
Australia is on our list of places to visit. I would love to see a kangaroo in the wild.
Hope you do travel to Australia and see a kangaroo.
Looks like an awesome drive
Yes, thank you Adrian
So sad about Australia lately but it’s still on our bucket list. The koalas there remind us of our pup, so adorable. Great you got to see her before the fires
Thank you for your concern Hera. Yes, it’s sad to see my country burn, then flood. It always reminds me of Dorothea MacKellar’s poem she wrote in 1904, “My Country”. There’s a video where she recites her poem about Australia. It’s a poem I learned in Secondary School.
Thanks for taking me on this drive! Seeing a kangaroo in the wild seems exotic to me. Curious what you would consider exotic if you took a drive in the U.S.?
You’re welcome. Good question! I’d like to see Bears, Bison, Moose, Deer. I’m sure there are others I can’t think of at the top of my head.
Seeing a kangaroo would be great on a nice drive.
We encountered one standing in the middle of the road looking at us, Missy. We slowed down, to watch for it to skip off the road and scanned the environment for any others. As, they travel in packs.
Sometimes it’s fun to be a tourist in your own hometown!
Certainly is, Brianna
I didn’t picture it to have so many tall trees. I would love to visit someday!
The gum trees can grow so tall. Hope you get to travel to Australia
great video! love all the green!
Thank you Lucy. I was amazed how green it was there for summer.
What an amazing drive! so awesome to see such amazing things!
Thank you Lisa
OK I love the 3D pictures. Those are awesome. You are in Australia? So jealous! I want to get there soon.
Thank you Cindy. Yes. Hope you get to travel to Australia
I’m not sure why I thought the bush would look different in Australia! Thanks for setting me straight by posting this fun little video.
You’re welcome Stacey. Yes, bush can be the same. Trees can be unique to regions, like our gum trees.
I’d love to drive through the bush country and spoke a kangaroo. That would be the ultimate OZ adventure. I too, feel that it can be mesmerizing to driving in the woods.
Hope you get to travel to Australia
I would love to do a drive like this one day!
Hope you do travel to Australia, Shirley
Definitely a spot high on our to go list! Thank you for sharing!
You’re welcome, Candy. Hope you get to travel to Australia
Love the video drive through the bush. Pinning this for my bucket list trip!
Thank you Cathy. Hope you get to travel to Australia
nice to promote it in lieu of all the fires lately. I’m not sure what parts of Australia were effected but I think it’s nice to promote the region. They are going to need extra help to keep tourism in biz for a while I think
Thank your for your concern Jen. The bushfires were higher up closer to the border with NSW. I’m slowly posting about the areas I visited last August and September before the fires started. Even towns, that weren’t directly impacted, are feeling it with the drop of tourists. There’s an #emptyesky campaign going around in social media.
I’m surprised that it didn’t look as different as I would have thought! It’s amazing how you can see similar vegetation in totally different places on our planet. But I know I’ve never seen a kangaroo in the wild!
True. years ago, they imported a lot of plants too.
I would love to see a kangaroo out in the wild. Thanks for sharing.
You’re welcome. Hope you do travel to Australia
