If you’re planning a holiday to this great city, you’ll be delighted to know that it has more days of sunshine than any other Aussie capital, according to Australia.com. In fact, it has a gorgeous Mediterranean climate, which barely drops below 20 degrees Celsius throughout the year.
When you visit the Western Australian capital of Perth, hire a rental car and begin to explore, it would be easy to fall under the illusion that you are stuck in the city itself. Of course, though there are certainly plenty of things to do here, there’s more still if you are looking for a great road trip idea.
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.
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.

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.
