I like the Hume. It's alot safer these days..
I find the Princess is nice plenty of scenery, but I find cars
traveling off into intersection etc..It is longer as well..

Nah seriously do whats the most fun for you, but if you get tired pull of the road, don't want to see you as a statistic.

Safe driving buddy...

I reckon you should go on the Hume because of the actual road themselves. I find that they're smoother than the Princess and lane width may be just a little wider as well. Happy crusin' wherever you go! :s1

I also think the Hume. Although it can get boring, via the Princess Hwy Melbourne is about 300km further.

Anyway safe driving! And keep an eye out for a Barra!!!!
