There are too many spectacular national parks in Australia for us to possibly list them all here, but we’ve taken the liberty to find some of the best. We recommend hiring a rental car in Oz and taking the time to explore some of these…
Talk to anyone from outside Australia and they have probably heard of the stunning Gold Coast region. It’s a mecca for tourism and car hire with Visit Gold Coast reporting the 2013-14 financial year saw over 11 million visitor arrivals grace its sparkling shores. By comparison, Sydney – arguably our most famous city – saw barely 9 million in the same time period, based on Destination NSW stats.
To put this maths into plain English – this sun-soaked seaside area is incredibly popular, and well worth putting on your Australian road trip holiday plans.
There’s a lot to love about the capital city of Victoria, Melbourne. Though it is no longer the actual national capital (it held this title in the early 1900s before Canberra got it), many still consider this buzzing place to be one of the cultural highlights of Australia, not to mention a sports lover’s dream.
If you want to experience an all-in-one holiday, make sure your Aussie road trip plan includes passing through ‘Melbz’.
Australia is a one-of-a-kind place. It is a continent all on its own, and is home to the world’s oldest living culture – the Aboriginal people – who date back to between 50-65,000 thousands years ago.
European settlers arrived from the late 1700s, bringing with them convicts and budding farmers alike, turning the land Down Under into a farming and gold mining heaven – or a prisoner’s hell.
This diverse and lengthy history has shaped what is now one of the most fascinating countries to visit on a road trip holiday. If you are wondering what to do in Australia, grab your hire car and check out some of these unique activities.

We think it’s safe to say that Australia is one of the best countries to in the world to road trip. The people are friendly, the scenery is stunning and the roads just keep on going.
However, what’s not necessarily safe is your budget. Though some people have all the money in the world, there are likely more of us who are holidaying on limited funding. We don’t want you to miss out on the awesome experiences Oz has to offer, so here are our road trip tips for the cash-conscious traveller.
No Australian road trip holiday is complete without pulling up to one of its glistening shorelines, running down to the water and diving into the waves. Or jumping on a surfboard. Or sunbathing. Or picnicking. You get the idea – beaches are awesome.
To help you figure out which beaches are the best to visit in Oz, we’ve compiled this list of awards for some of our favourites. Read on to find out who made the cut!
According to Nations Encyclopaedia, Australia has 353,331 kilometres worth of paved roads to explore. With sights such as the Great Ocean Road, vast Outback desert and other uniquely Aussie attractions along many of these, it’s a pretty fantastic place to visit on a road trip.
When many of our customers hire a car in Sydney, they often stick within the city limits and don’t explore further out. Of course, with the sheer plethora of things to do in the New South Wales capital, you certainly won’t be strapped for entertainment. However, there’s so much awesome holiday potential but a few hours away!
Use this road trip itinerary to encourage your exploration further south, using the Grand Pacific Drive.
The Great Ocean Road is one of Australia’s most famous rental car driving routes. It weaves its majestic way along the South Australian coast, beginning just next to Melbourne in Torquay and ending 243 spectacular kilometres later around Warrnambool – with numerous additional roads popping inland for a bit, too.
With so much to see and do here, you’ll likely fly home after your trip with not just your camera filled to the brim with photos and memories, but your mobile phone and maybe even a sketch pad as well!
To help you get excited for your visit, here are our top natural attractions along this stunning drive.
