Top Road Trips in Australia
There is an old adage that says roads were made for journeys and not destinations. Possibly it was coined by somebody that loves road trips, and enjoys the open road. Australia is a marvelous place for road trip as once you get out of the congested cities there is relatively little traffic on the major routeways.
Add to this the extensive coastline that the massive country has, scenic views are to be found everywhere. A great road trip can stay with you forever and leave everlasting memories.
