Road Trip Destinations in Australia












Nothing screams “road trip” quite like Australian Summers! It’s all about leaving the big, busy city behind and escaping into the wilderness. Now is the best time to jump in your car and make countless memories with your family and friends, especially with the upcoming long weekend for Australia Day.

Pacific Auto Finance has put together a list of road trip destinations specially for you so that you can get a head start on your planning.


Cheese & wine territory 


Margaret River

If you’re a lover of wine and the finer things in life, this destination is a must. Just imagine – smooth wine combined with soft cheese and dark chocolate under the glistening summer sun. With over 215 grape growers and wine producers in the region, Margaret River will not disappoint!




Water adventure



If you crave adventure, especially in the cool Australian sea, this is the place for you. Swimming with whales, kayaking with penguins and snorkelling through the colourful Ningaloo Reef is only the beginning.







Monkey Mia

Think wildlife – swim with the dolphins and explore the rust-red sand dunes at this beachfront location. Aquatic wildlife is just the beginning at Monkey Mia with sharks, stingray and turtles among other water life. If you’re up for a caravan adventure with the family, this is the place to be!




Beach life



Discover the beauty of Australian beaches that stretch across this breathtaking coastal location. This paradise escape is located near national parks filled with wildflowers and near the famous Lake Hillier that is sometimes pink!



Outdoor adventure


Fraser Island

Craving some outdoor adventure – why not head over to one of the largest islands in the world? Rock climbing, four-wheel driving across the sand dunes and fishing along the ocean beaches are only the beginning.

Fraser Island has activities, not for the faint-hearted like skydiving, paragliding, hiking and horse racing.



Endless activities for all ages
