Australia, with its wide-open spaces, national parks, and well-maintained highways, is a country that lends itself well to the road trip. However, there are some issues to consider before you get in the car. If you’re planning a road trip down under, make sure you check out this advice, which will help you plan the trip, keep safe and enjoy every moment of the ride.

Check The Route

Important on any road trip, this is especially important when you’re driving through the Australian outback. Nobody wants to make an impromptu trip to Alice Springs, only to get lost en route. Make sure you have a clear sense of the cities, national parks, and monuments you want to see, and that you know how to get to where you’re going. Pack the car with provisions, including plenty of water.

See The National Parks

Australia isn’t just about the sun, sea and sand. There are some stunning forests, deserts, mountain ranges and lakes scattered across this vast country. Three of the must-see national parks are Kosciuszko in New South Wales (home to Australia’s highest mountain), Flinders Range which is 300 miles north of Adelaide, and Litchfield in the north of Australia, which offers waterfalls amidst rainforest. A road trip to any of these spots promises stunning scenery and a chance to experience this special country.

Experience The Culture

People have been living in Australia for around 50,000 years. Take in some of the awe-inspiring Aboriginal culture during your road trip, by going on a First Nations walk with an Indigenous guide. The options include exploring an ancient rainforest that is home to the Kuku Yalanji people, admiring rock art in the Flinders Range national park, or foraging for oysters using the same methods as the Bardi and Jawi people.
