The Summer Road Trip Guide

People living in New South Wales today would claim that their home state is really a unique place to visit, and so it is. Here you can find amazing beaches, awesome natural wonders and a beautiful city. No wonder this state is also known as one of the best places to go to if you’re looking for an excellent road trip experience.

Here is a list of some of the most sought-after places in New South Wales that you should check out in your next visit.

The Grand Pacific Drive

This road trip is as epic as its name implies. You start off from the Royal National Park which is about an hour just south of the Sydney CBD. The drive will take you on a memorable trip along the southeastern coast of the state where you can find a mixture of breathtaking man-made and natural wonders. Two of the must-visit places of the Grand Pacific Drive include Jervis Bay and Bateman’s Bay.

Greater Blue Mountains Drive

This is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting and complete touring trips in Australia today. You can expect more than 1,200 kilometres of roads in the Greater Blue Mountains Drive which will bring you to its amazing World Heritage Area. First-time visitors can expect vast valleys, huge eucalypts, beautiful creeks, winding roads and historic towns as you go about the main route. 

Other sites include the ancient rainforest of Katoomba and the beautiful rock formation of the Three Sisters. Finally, you should cap your trip off with a visit to the various eateries and cellar doors along the journey.

The Rainforest Way

This is definitely the trip you should take if you’re going in with a group that is more rainforest-inclined. You start the trip off at Coffs Harbour, taking in the amazing scenic coast of NSW past Bellingen. Enjoy the views of the lush paddocks and farms of the Dorrigo Plateau and then on to New England Tablehand to Armidale.

One of the things that you shouldn’t miss out here is the Guy Fawkes River which plunges 100 meters down to the Ebor Falls. If you’re looking for clean forests, waterways and road tripping, this 185-kilometer drive is the one for you.

The Kosciuszko Alpine Way

For those who are more into mountains, the Kosciuszko Alpine Way will give you everything you need. Make sure you take a few days off extra so you can zigzag your way through the rugged and steep mountain paths of Jindabyne in Kosciuszko National Park and then head over to Khancoban which is near the Victorian Border.


Although a campervan is one of the most popular choices when going on an adventure in Australia, going for something such as a Toyota Prado would benefit you more for summer road trips. The reason behind this is because this vehicle offers more utility, comfort and reliability when you’re out for long and tough drives.
