Exploring Australia

A question many travellers ask when planning a trip to Australia is whether to drive, fly or book a tour. The incredible East Coast road trip through Queensland and New South Wales is one of the most visited destinations and an excellent drive.

The total distance around the country is 14, 935 km / 9,280 miles via National Highway 1. Australians love to travel and doing ‘The Big Lap’ of the country is high on the agenda for many. A drive around Australia takes a long time and it’s little wonder that many Aussies spend a year or more on the road exploring. Even the little island state of  Tasmania can easily take a few months to fully experience…

 Exploring Victoria

Victoria is a state full of surprises and has more than enough natural attractions to keep visitors busy for months. From the capital city of Melbourne to the high country, mountains, our world-famous coastal drive and some of the best beaches in the country.

Much of our focus is within Victoria, hiking, canoeing, camping and creating self-drive itineraries for visitors to famous regions such as the Great Ocean Road and the High Country.

Melbourne offers superb accommodation as well as plenty to see and do, keeping visitors busy for days. Did you know it is possible to see Little Penguins in Melbourne? We love road trips and have a number of itineraries that may help others with planning, most of our drives start in Melbourne and have included two weeks to see Uluru, touring The Flinders Ranges, camping and exploring New South Wales and within Victoria.
