PEPOMA List – Highest Accessible Sealed Road in Australia (Victoria)

04/01/2015  At Mount Hotham, we pulled over to the side of the road for a photo opportunity, and quite literally stumbled across a marker declaring that spot to be not only the highest point on the Great Alpine Road at 1825 metres above sea level, but also the highest section of year-round accessible sealed road in Australia.

During the 1920s, the road was upgraded with the rise of the motor car. The road trip must have been a hair-raising experience back then!

What a great find for my PEPOMA (Pete’s Extreme Points of Mainland Australia) List!
