The first car chase of the film, this is the intersection where Big Bopper encounters the Nightrider. The Nightrider hits the brakes, and Big Bopper spectacularly slides off the road.
Max wipes out the 4 bikers at Kirks Bridge; two on the bridge itself… and the other two fly off into the north side of the river!
Ready for some fun? World Series Paintball is one of the best paintball fields in Australia. Get into the Mad Max warrior mindset, and select a game type of Armageddon, Destruction or Sniper.
This is where Max is ambushed and his knee is shot. I'd recommend taking an image with you from the film, all you really need to do is line up the road with the You Yangs!
The Mt Rothwell Sanctuary and Conservation Area is the largest predator free ecosystem in Victoria. This is the last place in the world where you can still see Victoria's Eastern-barred Bandicoot.
Visit the You Yangs; the giant granite pinnacles that rise from the flat volcanic plains. This is a mountain biking and bush walking paradise, so bring your bike or hiking boots, and enjoy the views!
Need a break from all this activity? Why not stop at You Yangs Massage to give your body a rest. You deserve it after all this excitement! http://youyangsmassage.com.au/about_us/about_us
Thirsty? Why not stop at the Little River Hotel, the same pub the Toecutter's gang were drinking at in the film. Ask the locals about Mad Max, and try the 1kg Steak Challenge if you're extra hungry!
The final stop! Max and Goose talk with a couple on a trike just past the Rothwell Bridge. Look for the house ruins!
