There are many popular travel destinations in Australia giving you plenty of choice for travel. Some of the more popular locations for tourists include: Sydney, Cairns, Gold Coast and Fraser – but there are plenty of other destinations which you should consider when planning a road trip in Australia.

In the Outback

For the more adventurous people out there why not plan a trip to the Australian outback? The Outback is a colloquial term used to describe the most remote areas of Australia.

Much of central Australia and the Northern territory form part of the Outback and these areas are vast, remote and arid. With all this considered, you will need a reliable mode of transport and this is where Avis can help you. We offer car hire services in most of Australia’s big cities, giving you freedom to start your road trip from almost any area of the country you like.

Driving in Australia gives you the opportunity to take in the country’s spectacular scenery. With one of our fantastic vehicles you can gain access to some of Australia’s most remote locations – giving you a holiday experience unlike any other.

Choosing your route

There are many routes that you can follow in the Outback but Birdsville Track, Gibb River Road and Corner County are the most popular amongst travellers.

Gibb River Road can only be travelled using a 4 x 4 vehicle and it offers spectacular landscape as you drive through the Kimberley region and arrive at the sea near Derby. Corner Country gives drivers the opportunity to visit Cameron corner, an area where South Australia, Queensland and New South Wales meet.

You can decide to take one of the routes described above or go it alone and navigate your own way through the vast expanses of the Australian Outback. Whilst we can provide you with GPS technology to help you on your way we recommend planning your route in advance to ensure you don’t get lost in the expanse of the Australian Outback.
