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. 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.
