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!
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.
Alice Springs, the only “bigger” town on the way from Adelaide to Darwin, a perfect place to top up your groceries and a perfect getaway to visit Uluru (Ayers Rock), which is probably the reason why 99% of people visit this town.
It’s is summer time in Melbourne! That means, sunny days where the temperature can go up to 30 + degrees. If you are longer than a few days in the city, like us, it is definitely a must-do to spend a day at one of the Melbourne beaches and have a dip in the always cooling (sometimes a bit too cold for me) Pacific ocean.
It’s 36 degrees and we are on St. Kilda beach in Melbourne, together with thousands others, celebrating Christmas. Not a typical European Christmas, but hey we are in Melbourne so why not following the Aussie lifestyle.
Ladies Night in Kuala Lumpur. Oh how I miss those nights with the girls! Most people won’t believe it when you tell them that girls can drink for free on the bar street during weekdays. But it is true, and here is the list with the bars, times and drinks every bar offers for free.
Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, the biggest state in Malaysian Borneo, is a perfect base to explore the relativly nearby national parks. Besides that, Kuching is for most of the travellers the starting point of their Borneo adventure as Air Asia, Malaysia Airlines and Malindo Air have frequent flights to Kuching.
