From coastal journeys to Outback adventures cutting through the heart of the country, a classic road trip is one of the best ways to experience the wide-open spaces and magnificent scenery of Australia.
From short day trips to epic self-drive holidays and 4WD adventures, Australian road trips range in length, difficulty and cover all manner of landscapes. Driving in Australia is easy on most routes but you'll need to be prepared for the distances, road rules, 4WD tracks and Outback roads you might need to traverse.
