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!
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.
Karijini National Park was definitely our favourite national park on the west coast of Australia. The gorges and surroundings are beautiful and easy to reach. In most of the gorges, you are able to swim, which is very welcome when you are in the outback in west Australia.
After a long and dusty drive from Coober Pedy, we arrived at the mighty Uluru. Maybe the most famous natural wonder of Australia and the place where the longest culture of the world is still active. Everyone has seen Uluru on a picture, but to see it with your own eyes, it is definitely impressive!
The Oodnadatta Track is a 620 kilometres long outback track that takes travellers from Marlee, which is close to the Flinders Ranges National Park to Marly. The track is a rough, unsealed road that you will never forget. The road takes you through the driest and emptiest rego of Australia, the South Australian dessert.
The first stop of our road trip is Grampians National Park. This National Park is located 260 KM from Melbourne in the state Victoria. The Grampians is a mountain range filled with beautiful nature, waterfalls, walking tracks, wildlife and culture. We were planning to spend 2 days here hiking and enjoying the nature.
