Tucked away in its own corner of the globe, a jewel wedged between the Pacific and Indian Ocean, Australia is a country and continent worth discovering for more than fresh cuisine, job opportunities and adorable marsupials. Boasting some of the Earth’s most magnificent natural structures and empty highways, hop into eco-friendly cars such as the new Mitsubishi Mirage and enjoy the freedom of trail-blazing through the Aussie landscape.
The following article lists 5 of the best Aussie road trips you can plan by yourself with family or friends on your next vacation.
1. Great OceanRoad, Victoria
Considered an Australian National Heritage, the Great OceanRoad is a 243-KM long stretch which runs along the southern east coast of Australia. With airfares on the rise, cars like the Mitsubishi New ASX allow you to take a more scenic route to soak up the sunshine and fill your travel diaries with unforgettable moments. Start your road trip on the scenic coast of Victoria littered with giant stalagmites also dramatically known as the 12 apostles.
2. The NullarborPlain, WesternAustralia
If you only have a few days on hand or are on a layover trip, try renting a mileage friendly used Mitsubishi Lancer and start from Ceduna in South-Australia, heading west around 2000kms to Perth. The wide and nearly treeless expanse of the colourful Nullarbor Plain never fails to amaze even the most skeptical road trippers.
3. Great Alpine Road, Victoria
For adventurous thrill-seekers, an offbeat stretch known as the Great Alpine Road follows a disused railway track, which is perfect for cars like the new Mitsubishi Mirage, through a winding valley littered with wineries and Alpacas. You can end your trip at Mount Buffalo National Park filled with unique rock formations and waterfalls. Please check your local weather before venturing into high climbing roads and be prepared for a vast number of twists and turns on the roads.
4. Grand Pacific Drive, New South Wales
On the outskirts of Sydney, distract yourself from demanding work days at the Royal National Park with dramatic views from the Sea Cliff Bridge with vivid views of the blue ocean. With Roadside Assistance from dealerships for the new Mitsubishi Mirage Brisbane wide, you can afford the luxury of scenic routes fearlessly on winding cliff hugging roads like the Grand Pacific Highway.
