Historic Winton - Part 2Written by Bill Hunter
Winton is a small country town about about 250 km north of Melbourne.
We get there on Route 31 - the highway between Melbourne and Sydney. It's best to leave about 8 o'clock, bcause the traffic will be heavy - going out past the Melbourne International Airport, transport warehouses, industrial estates, factories and whole new suburbs.
And after about 2 hours (driving at no more than 110 km/h) the motorist arrives at the foothills of the Blue Mountain Range that separates Victoria from New South Wales and the Winton Turnoff is near.

Motormarques came into being over 10 years ago. The site contains thousands of brilliant images and stories of automobiles that stand out from bland, mass-produced transport that you see every day. Our home team of 5 photographers come from Europe, Britain, Australia and New Zealand. We mainly feature cars that have distinguished themselves in competition - from Goodwood and Nurburgring to local club-run sprints and hillclimbs.Website: www.motormarques.com
