Drive from Wollongong to Beechworth

Hi, I have checked that the drive from Wollongong to Beechworth (will stay one night in Beechworth) will take close to 7hrs (559km). Planning to start journey in the morning. From the driving directions on google map, it looks like majority of the route will be on the Highway including Prince, Illawarra and Hume.

My sis has cautioned me to get enough fuel and plan to stop for meals. As such, can you advise where I could stop for lunch and where I could top up petrol along the way? Many thanks!

Depending on your vehicle, 559 km is likely to be only a full tank of fuel so you can pretty much choose to top up anywhere once on the way to be safe. These roads are quite busy and Hume Hwy is well served by service stations with restaurants (using the term loosely)or fast food outlets every hour or so. A detour into any of the major towns will also provide service stations.

7 hours is a pretty full day so I'm guessing you probably won't be looking at much in the way of scenery or attractions on the way.

You'll need to take a break every 2 hrs or so - more important than fuel frankly.

I'd suggest a break for a coffee at Marulan (I prefer the Truckstop 31, just across the highway, but BP also have stops on each side of the highway here too).

Then somewhere near Gundagai - there is a McCafe at South Gundagai.

Several fuel stops in Holbrook and they have a nice bakery.

You can now bypass most of Albury-Wadonga or go through (a lot slower but its a big city with lots of choices for fuel & eats) and there are several choices of how to get to Beechworth from there, some more direct than others depending on how you are going for time.
