The Savannah Way has been described as the location for an “epic journey” for those looking to get behind the wheel on a holiday in Australia.

Spanning 3,700 kilometres, the Savannah Way connects Cairns and Broome and has been named as one of the world’s 20 greatest drives by the Times travel magazine team.

The road passes through 14 national parks, three time zones, four world heritage sites and covers two oceans.

According to the team: “The bare statistics are impressive but they don’t capture the narcotic vibrancy of the colours – red earth, azure sky, green cockatoos.”

It added that the biggest thrill of the journey was the remote dirt tracks to let the car career over bumps in the road and rallying around corners in moments of utter serenity.

Cairns is located in the north-east of the country and people taking a holiday in Australia may wish to head to the Great Barrier Reef and the Four Mile Beach when staying in the area.
