The Explorer's Guide to Great Aussie Road Trips

Font Size:

If you’re thinking of making the dream of hitting the road and travelling a reality, you’re in the right place. Whether you’re thinking of spending months – or years – on the road, or are itching to do some trips closer to home, YourLifeChoices has combined all the best road tripping advice gained from travel experts into one convenient eGuide.

Although thousands of people do it each year, an extended road trip is not for everyone. Travel writer Lee Mylne has some advice to help you decide whether life on the road is for you. The last thing you want is to pack everything up and invest in a motor home, only to find after a few weeks that it’s just not what you were hoping for.

A good way to start is to do a few shorter trips from your home base before striking out on a really long one. If you need some inspiration on where to start, travel writer, photographer and author Lee Atkinson has you covered with her favourite drives from each capital city.

Road tripping is a terrific way to explore this vast land we live in, and will give you a much better understanding of it. If you decide to take off in your car, camper or motorhome, you’ll meet some great people and see some amazing landscapes. So pack up the car and hit the road! (Just don’t forget to share your experiences with us once you’re back)!
