A Journey to Remember: Driving Throughout Australia

A Journey to Remember: Driving Throughout Australia

If you want an unforgettable traveling experience, then why not you visit the Land Down Under? With its beautiful landscapes and seas splashing against its coasts, Australia is a perfect destination where you can relax even while you are driving. Fasten your seatbelt and go on some of the best road trips in the world!

Great Ocean RoadGreat Ocean Road

Want to set eyes on Twelve Apostles limestone stack formations? Take your time and don’t hurry because you will travel down the amazing Great Ocean Road. Stretching for 243 kilometers, it will take you right beside coastlines, rainforests, beaches and cliffs whose beauty will leave you completely breathless. Starting from Torquay you will travel westward down the two-lane road, enjoying the scenery and catching sights of some beautiful wildlife. The Great Ocean Road ends up in Allansford near Warrnambool where you can take a break, eat some delicious food and sum up your impressions about everything you saw.

From Sydney to Melbourne

If you decide to travel on four wheels from Sydney to Melbourne, then you are in for quite a treat. Your journey along the breathtakingly beautiful coastline can last up to ten days if you really want to indulge in it. There are many seaside towns and villages along the road where you can stop, have a break and eat delicious seafood. If you want to swim, then make sure to visit Hyams Beach because over there you will get a chance to relax your feet in the whitest sand on this planet! If you are a nature lover then don’t miss the opportunity to visit some of the national parks down this road. You will be greeted by cute koalas and jumping kangaroos that just might stop long enough for you to make some beautiful photos!

The Nullarbor Plain, from South to Western AustraliaThe Nullarbor Plain, from South to Western Australia

If you are yearning for straight roads, then you should make a turn on the Eyre Highway and go down The Nullarbor Plain that will take you from South to Western Australia. This part of Australia is a bit remote so you should take some extra food, drinks and petrol. Roll down your windows and sing out loud with some awesome music booming from the digital car radio from Strathfield car radios. This is your chance to see more of the Aboriginal culture, even buy some of their art and craftwork in the Ceduna Aboriginal Arts and Culture Centre. If you love to play golf, then wake up your inner Tiger Woods and try your luck on the longest golf course in the world – incredible 1365 kilometers!

From Uluru to Kings Canyon, Northern Territory

You can’t leave Australia before seeing some Outback and red rocks and that is exactly why you should visit Kings Canyon. Your journey starts in Uluru, where visiting the Kata Tjuta Cultural Centre is a must. After a three-hour drive from Uluru, you will arrive at a paradise for hikers – there is the Rim Walk which is six kilometers long. It will give you a chance to enjoy beautiful landscapes, sunrises and sunsets that paint the sky above you. There are even some helicopter flights during which you can take in all the beauty of Watarrka National Park that lies beneath you.

There are no such things that enrich the human soul like travelling and visiting places where you have never been before. Australia may be on a bucket list for many people because it is so far away, but once you visit, it won’t take long before you come back to the land of koalas and kangaroos.
