State Route 168 (SR168) was an east - west route stretching from Seymour to Lake Eildon, paralleling the Goulburn River. It formed as the major thoroughfare through the towns of Yea and Alexandra, as well as many other smaller farming communities. The Goulburn Valley Highway is split into two, with a section of the Maroondah Highway acquiring the route between Koriella and Alexandra. The entire route was a typical for rural highway - a two-lane single carriageway with full linemarking.

The western portion of SR168 was the primary highway to Lake Eildon, a popular water recreation spot.


SR168 was the terminus of SR34 at Alexandra and SR173 at Thornton. Between Yea and
Cathkin, SR153 duplexed with SR168.

   
  In 1998, the SR168 route was replaced by two routes as part of the Statewide Route Numbering Scheme:
- B340 along its entirety;
- B300 between Yea and Cathkin (replacing SR153 along the duplex).
