  State Route 106 (SR106) was introduced in 1986 along the Hamilton Highway between the Princes Highway in Geelong and the Glenelg Highway at Hamilton. SR106 provided an inland route to Warrnambool and South Australia from Geelong, and, as the name suggests, is the most direct route between Geelong and Hamilton.

Many of the black non-reflective signs along the route were produced in 1983 and 1985, and the initial signing of SR106 was done via topknots (standalone route shield with direction arrow) attached to those signs. Reflective green signs that included the route number shield first appeared along the Hamilton Highway in 1986.

Hamilton Highway is two-lane single carriageway.

In 1998, the entire route was replaced by B140 in the Statewide Route Numbering Scheme.
