Self-drives in Australia
The open roads, minimal traffic, hidden-away towns and abundance of wineries would be enough to tempt anyone looking for a road trip holiday. Factor in the breathtaking coastal scenery, world-class food and laid-back lifestyle and you'll struggle to find a country more suited to self-drives than this.
Drive the coastal roads of Victoria and New South Wales
Discover one of the most spectacular coastal drives in the world as you navigate Victoria’s Great Ocean Road, admiring the Twelve Apostles and visiting small towns such as Lorne and Apollo Bay along the way. Or travel the East Coast in style from Sydney, exploring the Blue Mountains, Hunter Valley wine region and coastal town of Port Stephens en route to Byron Bay.
Explore the Outback and the Red Centre by car
Gauge the remoteness of the outback as you journey through the Kimberley region in the far northwest, marvel at the iconic monoliths of the Red Centre such as Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Alice Springs, and enjoy the unique scenery and wildlife of the Top End. If sampling local produce and culinary delights is more your style, follow a food and wine trail as you loop around the state of Tasmania or wend your way along Australia’s west coast and Margaret River region.
