If you’re planning a road trip around Australia, stop what you’re doing.

Out of the 193 different United Nations countries, here are four reasons you should consider visiting the land Down Under, renting a car and hitting the road? I mean, it was only visited by just over 7 million international tourists during the year ending May 2015, according to Tourism Australia. Plus Sydney is only in TripAdvisor’s top 25 world destinations.

Not convinced? Here are more reasons to plan a road trip holiday to Australia and rent a car from Ace Rental Cars.
