The Great Aussie Road Trip

We’re encouraging our travellers to go behind the wheel and explore the real “Downunder” in depth; meet local Aussies, enjoy a drink at the local pub, and see Australia’s legendary wildlife and awe-inspiring scenery.

Your Co-pilot kit

We’ve pioneered an award winning “Co-Pilot Kit” of road-trip goodies (maps, directions and discounts), tailored to a pre-planned itinerary of your choosing, so all of the work and research is done before your flight even lands.

If you’d rather unpack only once during your vacation and enjoy a different view every morning, then perhaps consider a motorhome rental. Australia is perfect for it! They’re great for families, couples, or even solo travel. You can go from a few days on the road to months in-country with a range of specials available on motorhome rentals in Australia. Be sure to ask about Early Booking and Long Term Rental discounts.

As for getting to Australia, we’ve partnered with award winning Air New Zealand to put together some great vacation packages. These include airfare, car rental and accommodation or motorhome rental covering all states and territories of Australia. Check out our Ultimate Australian Road Trip ideas for more information on these great value packages.

While most travellers know a flight to Australia is a long one, Air New Zealand’s new schedule means easier, smoother flights from the US or Canada. This winter they increased their service from San Francisco to Auckland, New Zealand (with great connections to Australia) to 10 flights per week (until March 2015). The new services are on new Boeing 777 aircraft and depart Auckland at 3.30pm to arrive in to San Francisco at 6.45am. This allows for easy connections to New York, Chicago, Washington, the Southern US or Eastern Canada on your way home.

Christian’s first globetrotting adventure saw him get lost exploring the streets of Saigon. Following his nose to Asia’s best coffee, two lifelong addictions were born. A freelance writer and novelist, Christian’s travels have since taken him around his native Australia, Asia, Europe, and much of North America. His favourite trips have been through Japan, Spain, and Brazil, though with a love of off-beat, artsy cities, he’ll seize any opportunity to return to Paris, New York, or Berlin.
