Hume Highway

Hume Highway

The Hume Highway/Hume Freeway is one of Australia's major inter-city highways, running for 874 km between Sydney and Melbourne. It is part of the Auslink National Network and is a vital link for road freight to transport goods to and from the two cities as well as serving Albury-Wodonga and Canberra.

The main alternative route between Sydney and Melbourne is the Princes Highway which follows the coast for most of its length. Other inland alternate routes include the Olympic Highway route between Albury and Sydney via Cowra and Bathurst, and also the Federal / Monaro Highway route via Canberra which links with the Hume Highway near Goulburn and the Princes Highway in East Gippsland.

Famous quotes containing the words hume and/or highway:

    Reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office than to serve and obey them.
    —David Hume (1711–1776)

    The improved American highway system ... isolated the American-in-transit. On his speedway ... he had no contact with the towns which he by-passed. If he stopped for food or gas, he was served no local fare or local fuel, but had one of Howard Johnson’s nationally branded ice cream flavors, and so many gallons of Exxon. This vast ocean of superhighways was nearly as free of culture as the sea traversed by the Mayflower Pilgrims.
    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
