MUST DRIVE: GORGE ROAD, SA

Fa­mous rally stage de­mands re­spect

SOME OF the best driv­ing roads in Aus­tralia are in the Ade­laide Hills, start­ing just 20 min­utes from the City of Churches CBD, and hav­ing played host to some epic tar­mac rally stoushes over the years as the bat­tle­ground of Clas­sic Ade­laide, now the Ade­laide Rally. To ex­plore the Ade­laide Hills in a fast car is bliss, the area dot­ted with charm­ing old towns and, of course, fan­tas­tic roads. One of them is this one, Gorge Road, 17.7km of some­times tight, nar­row yet grippy bi­tu­men, flanked by the oc­ca­sional rock­face and with some pretty unique scenery. At 80km/h and heav­ily po­liced, es­pe­cially on week­ends, take it easy. Be­ware the blind crests if com­ing from Chain of Ponds.
