Road tripping is fun. However, sitting in traffic is not. Here are the 3 of the finest crowd-free roadways to take a trip.
Eyre Peninsula, South Australia
It’s a reasonably long haul to get to the Eyre Peninsula when you stay in Lorne accommodation – from the Nullarbor to the west, and a long day’s drive east of Adelaide. Trace the eastern coastline south from Whyalla to Port Lincoln and after that back up the western side to Ceduna for sensational seaside surroundings, wildlife, and exceptional seafood – road tripping doesn’t get far better than this.
Fantastic Inland Way, Queensland
Heading north to tropical Queensland? Head up Highway 1 and take the back way, also called Great Inland Way, through western NSW and Queensland– Sydney to Townsville via Dubbo, Lightning Ridge, Roma, Emerald, Carnarvon Gorge and Charters Towers. It’s sealed all the way and is a journey through beautiful small-town Australia– an Aussie version of America’s Route 66. How far? 2070km.
Beyond the Great Ocean Road, Victoria
Any visiting route as well-known as the Great Ocean Road is always going to bring in more than its reasonable share of slow-moving motorists who may be staying at Apollo Bay accommodation you cannot blame them, it’s a spectacular piece of roadway– that can turn it into a crawling conga-line of automobiles and caravans. However if you keep going, beyond the 12 Apostles, past the Bay of Islands, west of Warrnambool, you’ll leave the day-trippers and tour buses behind. Decrease when you get to Portland, where you can stroll to the edge of the greatest sea cliffs in Victoria to peer down at a large colony of about 650 fur seals then follow the curve of Discovery Bay to Nelson on the South Australian border and check out the back roads of the Limestone Coast. It’s just a half day’s drive, but will feel a million miles away. How far? 167km (Warrnambool to Nelson).
