Top Aussie Road Trips
The picturesque drive along Western Australia’s Coral Coast is an artwork of blues, greens, and reds, with a swirl of white thrown in, seemingly as an afterthought. On this road trip nature is the star of the show. You will encounter many natural beauties, with The Pinnacles, Kalbarri National Park, and World Heritage Shark Bay just a handful of the highlights.
Great Eastern Drive Tasmania
Truly a drive that encapsulates some of the best natural beauties Tasmania has to offer, the Great Eastern Drive will leave you in awe of our tiny ‘apple isle’. This route weaves its way along the eastern coast past pristine bone-white beaches, picturesque bays, and verdant national parks. The drive takes you past world famous icons such as Wineglass Bay, Bay of Fires, and Freycinet National Park. Along the way you’ll discover quaint coastal towns, delectable vineyards, and world class restaurants serving up the freshest of fresh seafood.
Red Centre Way
This loop, starting in the bustling hub of Alice Springs, takes in some of Australia’s best big-name attractions: Uluru, Kings Canyon, Kata Tjuta. As the route name suggests, the landscape on this drive gleams an earthy red; but the dramatic scenery is just the start. Be sure to stop plenty along the way, with a trek at Kings Canyon, a dip in the aptly named Garden of Eden, and exploring the crater of Gosse Bluff among some of the best. And as if it needs to be noted, don’t miss out on witnessing one of the glorious sunrises or sunsets at Uluru.
Australia’s longest stretch of straight road is also its most dramatic, in our opinion anyway. The semi-arid wilds of the Nullabor are nestled atop the Great Australian Bight. This vast expanse of desert is virtually treeless and offers up incredible ocean views, sporadic wildlife viewing, and epic sunsets. The mesmerising desolation will have you gaping in awe the entire drive.
The Savannah Way
One for the adventurous road tripper, the Savannah Way is 3,500km of off-the-beaten-track exploration. The ‘road’ runs from tropical Cairns to the cobalt blue shores of Broome through some of Australia’s most rugged terrain. Expect to traverse a dirt road or two and pass by some truly pristine natural wonders.
