Driving Holidays ... Drive Australia
We all have memories of road trips as kids. Those seemingly long, hot days in the car, playing eye spy, and nothing other than a book to keep us company. Driving holidays are now becoming a big trend with international visitors to our country, arriving to our hotel and accommodation options via their own route’s, not tied to an airport schedule or long queues at the check-in counters.
Driving holidays … to drive around Australia and be our own boss. Be on your own time schedule, and work out the logistics that suit you and your family. Which cities, places and attractions you wish to visit, are becoming a hugely popular way of seeing this vast country. From the green, lush forests of the world-heritage listed rainforests such as Queensland’s Daintree, or perhaps to the sparkling joy of the famous Great Barrier Reef. Plus, with over 1.3 million kilometres of desert, and amazing outback 4WD experiences to boot, this continent has nearly every variation of outdoor experiences for the traveller to choose from.
From putting pen to paper and intinerising your driving holiday on an Australian road map in the comfort of your hotel room, you can write your own personalised journey that suits you and your family. A driving holiday is one of the best ways to see all that Australia has to offer, and it’s no doubt that you will meet friends and enjoy the unplanned memories that happen. The little towns you stop at. The lifelong friends you will meet at the local camping ground. You set your own timeframes, your own budget and have the freedom of choice.
A driving holiday will suit any traveller – the gourmet, the coastal, the outback. The options are endless. Australia has fantastic highways, and roads, but you must always ensure you are prepared for the distances and the road rules within each State.
So go on … plan that driving holiday and bask in the memories that will come!
