Self-drive holidays

Welcome to the YourLifeChoices Self-Drive Holiday page, where you can find the latest about road trips, places to stay, caravans and motorhomes and the best deals on where to stay.

From coastal journeys to Outback adventures cutting through the heart of the country, a classic road trip is one of the best ways to experience the wide-open spaces and magnificent scenery of Australia.

Self-drive journeys are perfect for the independent traveller who wants to take in the sites at their own pace. With only yourself to worry about, indulge in a sleep in; stop for a walk in a beautiful roadside valley; spend an extra hour on a gastronomic lunch - with your own car, motorhome or caravan, the world really is your oyster.
