Dreaming of a road trip in Australia? This nation is full of charming spectacular routes ensuring its visitors an unforgettable holiday. Some of them may appear risky but with multi trip travel insurance you have nothing to worry about. Here are 3 routes to discover the breathtaking landscapes of Australia.
1. The Great Ocean Road
It is perhaps the best route on the road that Australia has to offer. A stunning landscape that leads to a visit to two of the major national parks in Australia, the Otway National Park and Melba Gully surrounded by forests, woods and 60 km of cliffs overlooking the crystal clear waters of the ocean. One kilometer after another you can admire the flora of this region of Australia, visiting waterfalls and with a little luck a close encounter with kangaroos. Do not miss the 12 Apostles, the famous reefs located off the coast along the Great Ocean Road.
2. From Sydney to Byron Bay
It is another route not to be missed. Move north of Sydney through the National Park Ku Ring Gai Chase where you expect long walks and Aboriginal art. Go to Newcastle, the second largest city in New South Wales which is famous for its beautiful beaches. The area includes 2,000 hectares of vineyards and the Great Lakes of Port Stephens where you expect even dolphins and whales. Coffs Harbour instead is considered the entertainment capital of the East Coast where you can try your hand at skydiving, scuba diving and horseback riding.
3. Sydney to Melbourne
Treat yourself to an exciting journey between the two major cities of Australia. In about 12 hours cross breathtaking landscapes and scenes from fairy tales. It is incredible to believe. Drive along the only road linking Sydney to Melbourne, the M1 or Prince’s highway which will take you to Batemans Bay where you can stop for lunch before visiting the museum of the killer whale. Continue through the natural parks in the area admiring the sunset behind the snow capped mountains located a few hours from Melbourne. Return home with postcard shots.
