A quick guide to: The Gold Coast

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.

A quick guide to: Melbourne

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’.

Where to see Australia's unique attractions

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.
