Driving is one of the best ways to see Australia. We're a nation of vast and varied beauty and whilst our cities and vibrant and entertaining, a real Aussie experience requires a road trip, even if only for a day. Whether you want to travel around Australia by car or ditch the tour bus and head out on your own, having a car gives you so much more freedom to explore at your own pace.
Like any country, Australian has its own nuances and rules, so here are some handy tips to ensure your can focus on the journey and enjoying the best that Australia has to offer.
An African safari in Australia? Yes, you read correctly. Located around 40 minutes from the Melbourne CDB lies the Werribee Open Range Zoo. Just one of many things to do in Werribee, the zoo is set on 225 hectares and impeccably themed. You could be mistaken for thinking you'd stepped into the African Savannah. We set off keen to see some of the wildlife, in particular the rhinos that I'd wanted to revisit after a run in with one in Nepal a few years back.
