Travelmate -  Australia Accommodation and Hotels
Great Australian Drives
Do you like the idea of a road trip, but aren’t too sure where to go or how much time to allow for the journey? Travelmate has got together with Best Western to bring you some great drives, exploring some of the best regions of this vast country of ours. Each month we will showcase four drives. Some of them are fairly short, just a couple of days and ideal for a weekend away, and some of them are longer, ideal for a short holiday. We’ll suggest a route and highlight some of the things you can do and see along the way.

So pack up the car and head out of town, ready to visit some outstanding places around Australia. You’ll be glad you did.
