Self drive itinerary for Australia we’ve got you covered! We bought a car, made a plan and travelled in 6 weeks (February – mid-March) from Melbourne to Adelaide, from Adelaide to Darwin, Darwin to Broome and from Broome down to Perth. We had the best time ever!
In this post, you will read how we managed to travel for a month in Australia with only spending $1200 ( EUR 800) each. Australia is definitely not cheap but with these tips and tricks, you can save money during your road trip.
Just 30 minutes from Perth, the bustling, dynamic port city of Fremantle has long been renowned for its mix of arty and alternative types. For people who have been to Melbourne, this city is a bit like Fitzroy. It’s arty, cool and has a lot of funky bars.
Swan Valley located to the north east of Perth is perfect if you fancy a naughty half day outside the city chocolate and wine tasting. I was more interested in the wine and the chocolate liqueurs, naturally.
Kalbarri National Park is a perfect stop along the west coast for snorkelling, hiking and relaxing. This beautiful area is divided into two parts. The ocean cliffs have beautiful snorkel spots, look out points and short walks along the coast whereby the river gorges area has beautiful gorges and longer desert hikes.
Shark Bay is located on the most West point of Australia and is official a UNESCO World heritage sight. The crystal clear waters, sea-grass beds full of turtles and dugongs (sea cows), dolphins and much more makes it to a place which should definitely be on your bucket list to visit.
Coral Bay, is together with Exmouth, the getaway to the Ningaloo Reef. This charming small beach town is a perfect place to stay while diving the Ningaloo Reef, snorkelling with Manta-Rays and swimming with Whale Sharks.
