Driving in Australia is a fantastic way to see the country on your own terms without having to rely on public transport, but before you jet off, it’s a good idea to plan ahead and make sure you’re fully prepared for your adventure.
There’s no denying it – Australia is huge. So huge that the prospect of making the most of your visit can be a little intimidating.
If you’re planning a trip to Australia you’re more than likely considering hiring a car and driving to where you want to go rather than relying on public transport.

The romance of the open road is a notion that seems to resonate through US culture.
You can’t beat the feeling of hitting the open road and exploring the highways of America.
Driving in the States can be a culture shock at first, especially if you’re not used to driving in foreign countries, but you’ll soon get into the swing of it.
Driving in Australia is a great way to see the country and enjoy off-the beaten tracks sights you might not otherwise be able to see.

Taking a car to Croatia is easily the best way to see the country.
There are plenty of things drivers can do to minimise the risk of breakdowns and if you have a regular, petrol or diesel car, you might know enough about what’s under the bonnet to fix a minor problem in the event of a problem – and even if you don’t, you know that help is only a phone call away.
In recent years Croatia has emerged as a one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations. The picture perfect Dalmatian Coast now rivals more traditionally established beach holiday mainstays in the Mediterranean and the rest of this beautiful and varied country is opening up to tourism in a way that few would have anticipated as recently as a decade ago.
It may have blossomed into one of Europe’s most popular destinations in recent years but there’s still much to discover in this diverse and beautiful country. From its buzzing cities to the enchanting Dalmatian Coast, Croatia is a country that demands to be explored and there’s arguably no better way to do just that than by getting behind the wheel of a car.
