Australia’s Best Road Trip Destinations

By Justyn Harrison August 24th

From the beach, bush and beyond Australia has some of the most scenic landscapes in the world. Hit the road with our suggestions below and you will be sure to marvel at some Australian Wonders!


1. Stokes Bay, SA

Stokes Bay was voted by Tourism Australia as Australia’s best beach. Before you even reach the white sand you are weaved through a mountain of caves and coves. This beach is the perfect place to soak up some sun after a long day of driving.

2. Cable Beach, WA

Cable Beach has over 22 km of white sandy shores. It is famous for its camel rides and beautiful turtle nests. If you are driving down 4WD vehicles are permitted in the area ‘North of the rocks’.

3. Whitehaven Beach, QLD

This beach is one you can’t miss! It is one of Australia’s largest tourist attractions and is constantly viral on social media for its deep turquoise waters and white sand beaches. What makes this beach even more special are the beautiful tidal water inlets that form. These Inlets cause the white sand and deep blue water to swirl and form beautiful patterns on the ocean’s surface.

The Blue Mountains are home to soaring sandstone walls, native Australian fauna and flora and a range of Aboriginal rock art. If you are arriving at night there are also underground glow worm caves or local luxury wilderness retreats to see the night through.

A lake in the desert? You heard that right, Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre truly defies all expectations. If you plan your trip perfectly you may be able to gaze upon Australia’s largest salt lakes glistening right in the middle of the Australian Desert.
