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:
“No one can doubt, that the convention for the distinction of property, and for the stability of possession, is of all circumstances the most necessary to the establishment of human society, and that after the agreement for the fixing and observing of this rule, there remains little or nothing to be done towards settling a perfect harmony and concord.”
—David Hume (17111776)
“The highway leads to Heaven, but each finds his own way.”
