An Australian Outback road trip could be the adventure of a lifetime.
A road trip through the Outback could be the perfect way for people who have booked flights to Australia to experience the country.
The Daily Mail’s Lisa Young wrote that the 1,875 km Australia Way route – which covers the distance between Broome in Western Australia and Darwin in the Northern Territory – allows holidaymakers the chance to see some of the epic scenery from the Baz Lurhmann film Australia.
She highlighted the openness and remoteness of the region as one of the best experiences of the Land Rover drive, while a stop at Kakadu National Park was also noteworthy for its collection of Aboriginal rock art.
However, Ms Young advised those who plan to drive the route to take care – while the trip itself is not difficult, drivers should be aware of the risk of floods and should also take care to watch for animals such as kangaroos and cows.
Those who plan to stay in Darwin for a few days at the end of their road trip may wish to explore the city’s many restaurants or pubs, or join the crowds at the public markets, Lonely Planet suggests.
According to the travel guide, the city is popular with tourists and Australians alike and people from at least 56 countries make up Darwin’s population.
