Location of the Range
From the centre of Melbourne, Rosedale is a 2 hour drive east, down the Princes Highway. Turn right at the roundabout, drive south for 1.8km, then turn left into the Rosedale-Stradbroke Road. Drive along this road to the first corner (about 1.2km) and instead of following the bitumen road around to the right, go straight ahead onto the gravel road, and the Range gateway is about 800 metres further on the right-hand side of the road.
