August 8, 2014 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Where else can you see the amazing beaches, awesome waves, forest trails, hike points, desert sights, camels, the outback, and expansive rainforests in just one road trip? Australia, of course!

Australia is full to the brim with varied adventures for every traveller. The continent is connected by highways, motorways, back roads, and city streets. Interspersed in between are nature parks, cultural centres, city buildings, residential areas, entertainment centres, and more space than you can imagine. Pack a camera, bring extra batteries, gas up, and embark on the best road trip destination in the world.

Driving routes

Australia offers outback plains, desert expanses, and even salt lakes. Embark on the Golden Outback adventure passing through the famous Wave Rock formations, one of which includes the world-famous Ayers Rock. While you’re there, experience the woodlands, the flora and fauna, as well as long white beaches of the south. For nature lovers, the Adelaide Hills route offers the great outdoors, Kangaroo Island and its host of wildlife, as well as breathtaking views of Adelaide’s rugged coastline.

Tasmania provides a gastronomic tour de force with its selection of gourmet food, locally-produced wines, and beautiful sceneries. The Pacific Coast features long winding roads occasionally dotted by quaint towns, and lined by awesome white sandy shores. The Southern Queensland route offers golden sunsets, modern city views, and holiday towns. Nature’s Way Route takes you through the natural parks of Nitmiluk, the waterholes and water falls of Kakadu, and the wetlands of Darwin. The Great Southern touring route offers a historical tour of the Gold Rush and white settlement in Victoria, along with scenic destinations. Lastly, the Capital, Coast, and Country touring route features national parks, picturesque townships, and long coastlines offering visitors a gourmet tour of the coast with its local wines, produce, and seafood.


Exploring Australia’s large expanse can be a daunting experience. Here are some reminders to make sure you make the most out of your road trip:

  • Get a vehicle and drive. Use your car or rent one, as long as you’re the one driving it. It’s more exciting to explore the country according to your own itinerary, time schedule, and preference. It can be difficult following a tour group when you want to stay longer at one place, or take another route, or visit another destination.
  • Make sure you bring the essentials. If not, get some along the way. There are a lot of towns and cities you’ll pass by that it’s impossible you won’t find something.
  • Get a general idea of your route but don’t stick to the big ticket items. Don’t skip the quaint and smaller towns just because it was not mentioned. Little townships can be hidden gems just waiting to be discovered. Once you’re in a community, don’t hesitate to introduce yourself.

Australians are friendly and laidback so you need not worry. Check the lesser-known routes and activities. Don’t balk on experiencing the great outback; you won’t regret it. Swim in every waterhole and hike as much as you can. Make your Australian road trip adventure as remarkable and memorable as possible.
