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’.
