Keep your wanderlust alive with these five epic Australian experiences.
Located between the world’s largest reef system and the Daintree Rainforest is the picturesque Great Barrier Reef drive. Starting in Cairns it travels along 300-kilometres (186-miles) of Queensland’s spectacular coast. There is a lot to explore in this area, like snorkeling around the enchanting coral reef, feel the squeaky white sand beneath your toes in Port Douglas, enrich your knowledge of Aboriginal culture in the ancient Daintree Rainforest, and spot saltwater crocodiles in Cape Tribulation.
Wind along the breathtaking coast of Australia’s island state of Tasmania on the 176-kilometre (109-mile) Great Eastern Drive. Stop along the way to sample the region’s world-class wine and mouth-watering fresh seafood, before coming face-to-face with some of the island’s cutest native residents.
This is undoubtedly one of the most scenic trips in Australia. Set off on the Great Ocean Road to discover sweeping coastal views, ancient rock formations, and between May and November, majestic whales breaching over the horizon. Spend three (or more) days winding your way from Melbourne to Adelaide, or Adelaide to Melbourne.
If you’re looking for a truly unique experience, set off from Adelaide towards South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula, where you’ll uncover the magnificent and Instagram-famous Watermelon Avenue; the narrow track dividing the bubble-gum pink waters of Lake MacDonnell and the blue-green waterscape.
Breathe in the fresh open air of the Northern Territory’s Stuart Highway. This epic journey will open your eyes to the vast plains, red earth, and wild beauty of the Australian outback. Begin your journey in Adelaide, stopping at bucket list-worthy destinations along the road to Darwin, including Alice Springs, Uluru and Kakadu.
