With the long-weekend get-away being one of our favourite ways to unwind, here's a look at the most popular ways to get your fair share of the road trip adventure. There's a road trip for everyone Every state of Australia offers a variety of different driving holidays for you to enjoy in the family car, camper van or four wheel drive. From coastal journeys and outback adventures, driving is one of the best ways to see the country. If you're in Sydney and looking for a long driving holiday, you could try the Pacific Coast Touring Route that takes you north on a spectacular journey along the eastern seaboard to Cairns. This route offers a wide variety of stopovers from the city lights of Sydney through the wineries of the Hunter Valley, sparkling beaches on the Central Coast and tropical oasis all the way to Cairns in the far north of Queensland. Heading south from Sydney, there's the spectacular beaches of the Sydney to Melbourne Coastal Drive. It's a journey that could take the better part of seven days if you stop along the way at all the recommended locations to enjoy the spectacular scenery and wildlife - which could include everything from whales to sea eagles. If you're on the western seaboard, you could try the Indian Ocean Drive from Perth to Geraldton – a particularly good drive for those towing fishing boats as it offers opportunities to find some of the most spectacular fishing spots in the country. It offers a wide variety of things to see and do for the whole family, with great places to camp out and enjoy the countryside. If you're in the south, try the South Australia Loop from Adelaide to the Barossa Valley and Kangaroo Island. This is a great adventure for those who love fine food and wine and want to get an up-close and personal view of Australian wildlife. It also offers great opportunities to swim, surf, snorkel and bushwalk and can take anywhere from 3 to 14 days of driving depending on how far you want to go and how long you want to be away.
