Places To See
Great Ocean Road, Victoria.
Stretching the length of the Victoria coastline, the Great Ocean Road offers some of the most spectacular sights in Australia. The luscious rainforest, crisp blue sea and sandy beaches make this an area that needs to be visited, explored and enjoyed. The local towns are the epitome of the relaxed and cultured Australian way of life and you will easily settle in to the surroundings.
Snowy Mountain Drive, New South Wales.
Known as one of the most stunning settings in the Australian country, the Snowy Mountain drive is popular for tourists and lovers of historic monuments and nature at its very best. The highest mountains in Australia are quite a sight to see and driving around the area and through the towns is the perfect way to see everything on offer.
The Savannah Way.
This is not a journey for the faint hearted… the Savannah Way is over 2000 miles of unsealed roads that mainly run through the tropical savannah. The beauty, history and culture of the area is more than worth the adventurous nature of the route and you become not only one with nature but at one with the rural sides of Australia.
The Watagan Mountains.
For the less adventurous is the safer and more subdued option of the Watagan Mountains. The staggering beauty of the area has the same affect although the journey is easier with several recreational sites on the way for families and travellers to stop on the way to really take in the sights that simply have to be seen. The Watagans National Park is one of the best vehicle routes Australia has to offer.
The Fleurieu Peninsula, Southern Australia.
Adelaide is home to the most spectacular examples of nature within Australia. The deep blue water, valleys and hills and natural untouched landscapes are the most idyllic of settings regardless of the nature of your holiday and the sights you typically enjoy, no one will be uninspired by the sights of the Fleurieu Peninsula.
The Huon Trail, Tasmania.
Following trails whilst on your road trip is one of the best ways to make sure you see some of the most stunning sights the country has to offer. The Huon Trail offers just a little piece of everything; waterways, winding roads and forests housing rivers. The trail almost transports you to a whole other world as you experience the other side of Australia.
As trip on this scale to Australia is often not something that can be repeated, and really is one of a lifetime, it’s important that you really make the most of the spectacular sights that this country has to offer. So, pack your essentials, arrange your budget travel insurance and prepare this itinerary for the perfect summer break on the road.
