News Explore Victoria’s Scenic Routes with Evie Charging Stations

Embarking on a road trip is one of the best ways to explore the stunning landscapes and hidden gems of Victoria. From the rugged coastline of the Great Ocean Road to the serene beauty of the Mornington Peninsula, there are endless opportunities for adventure and discovery, with Evie chargers readily available along the way.

Not too long ago the thought of exploring these iconic road trip routes with an electric vehicle may have been daunting, and rightfully so. Fortunately, though, times are changing and with over 75 Evie charging sites scattered across Victoria (and more to come), road-tripping in an EV is becoming less worrisome and more enjoyable thanks to ample public charging options available.

So, what are popular road trip routes and the must-visit destinations? Let’s jump right into it.

Great Ocean Road

Arguably one of the most famous road trip routes in Australia, the Great Ocean Road offers breathtaking views of the Southern Ocean, dramatic cliffs, and iconic landmarks like the Twelve Apostles.

Starting from Torquay, where you can get a first top-up at an Evie charging station on Walker St, you can journey through charming seaside towns like Lorne and Apollo Bay, each offering unique attractions and dining experiences. There’s also a conveniently located Evie charger in Apollo Bay, facilitating further exploration to Port Campbell or serving as a reliable go-to for extended stays or local exploration.

Make sure to stop by the Otway Fly Treetop Adventures for a bird’s-eye view of the rainforest canopy and indulge in fresh seafood in Apollo Bay.


Mornington Peninsula

Just a short drive from Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula is a haven for foodies, nature lovers, and beach enthusiasts alike. En route, you’ll encounter ample Evie Charging stations, including two key locations in Dandenong. With nearby amenities at your disposal, you can recharge your EV and your appetite before journeying further down the coastal towns on the Mornington Peninsula.

And hey, if your EV needs a top-up, no sweat! Just recharge at the Evie charger on Melbourne Road in Sorrento. Once you’re all powered up, head further to Sorrento’s historic streets. There, you can casually stroll along cliff-top trails, browse through boutique shops, and dine in seaside restaurants boasting breathtaking views. Oh, and that quick top-up can also help you venture further to Portsea if you fancy. With so much to do and see, the options are endless!
