ROAD TRIPS & EXPLORING AUSTRALIA
Australians love to travel and self-driving ‘The Big Lap’ of the country is high on the bucket list for many. A drive around Australia takes a long, long time and it’s little wonder that many Aussies spend a year or more on the road exploring, living in tents, caravans or motorhomes.
The drive around Australia covers 14, 935 km / 9,280 miles via National Highway 1.
Even the little island state of Tasmania can easily take a few months to fully explore and the famous East Coast Road Trip from Sydney up to Cairns in Far North Queensland needs about 6 weeks to experience.
For many visitors to the country, a self-drive road trip through the outback regions of Australia, such as Melbourne to Uluru (Ayers Rock) will be a once in a lifetime experience. We still have many miles of unsealed red-dirt roads where it is possible to be well off the main routes and get to know remote regions of the country.
It is also possible to drive the whole way around Australia and keep to sealed roads whilst still seeing the outback as well as the coastal regions, mountains, and cities the country is famous for.
