The Grand Ridge Road, partially designated route C484, is a long tourist drive through Gippsland, in Victoria, Australia. 135 kilometres long, it runs from Seaview, to Carrajung, via Ferndale, Trida (named after Trida, New South Wales), Hallston, Mirboo North, Gunyah, Balook and Blackwarry. As the name suggests, the road primarily follows ridgelines through the heavily undulating Strzelecki Ranges.

The road is known for the attractive scenery ranging from open farmland to dense forest, especially as it passes through Mount Worth State Park and Tarra Bulga National Park. Its surface ranges from good quality sealed bitumen to heavily corrugated unsealed gravel.

It is steep and winding through the eastern Strzelecki Ranges and heavily used by logging trucks throughout the year. Large trees and branches often fall after wind. Not recommended for caravans.
