In Victoria, there is 1 remaining National Route, which is located in Metropolitan Melbourne. There were several more National Routes across the state, however these were converted to alphanumeric route numbers in 1996, with the introduction of the Statewide Numbering Scheme.
National routes were introduced to Australia in 1954, after successful trialling of NR31 along the Hume Highway corridor in New South Wales and Victoria.
Below are the various routes this site has photos of. The routes are sorted by their route number
|ALT-NR1 (South Melbourne to Narre Warren):
Kings Way, Queens Way, Queens Road & Princes Highway
