A while back I shared my Perth to Coral Bay Western Australia road trip itinerary and now here is my next Australia itinerary! In this post I share my Brisbane to Sydney road trip. Here’s the thing, there are SO MANY places and things to see and do on Australia’s East Coast. I was travelling with 2 people with restricted holiday time but does that mean we shouldn’t travel because we can’t do it ‘slow enough’ of course not! We packed so much into our 7 day road trip and now I’m sharing my experience with you!
There’s no denying that everyone loves a good nose at what people pack in their suitcases and now I’m going to give you a look into mine. This is a look at what was on my Australia packing list for a 2 week trip during winter! Typically when the Northern Hemisphere gets their school breaks, the Southern Hemisphere is just coming into winter. So while I’ve been used to temperatures reaching between 30c – 40c (high 80fs to 90s), I traded them in for temperatures a bit of a jump lower than that!
I could have spent an awful lot longer in Western Australia. But as a part time traveller who just wants to see as much as possible, I crammed a 3000km road trip into just 7 days and I loved every single second. This is my 1 week Western Australia itinerary, including where I stopped each night, what there is to see on the route and how we spent our time in our overnight town stops! I designed my trip so I either had a full afternoon or morning in the towns that we stopped at. If you don’t have the time to go from Perth to Exmouth, Perth to Coral Bay is well worth the trip!
I visited Uluru with my friend because it was on her bucket list. When she suggested it I was slightly worried that I’d find it underwhelming, like I had with the Grand Canyon in the USA. All there really was to do there was hike down into the Canyon, I half expected Ayers Rock to be the same, that climbing it would be the only thing to pass the time and I wasn’t going to do that. But how wrong was I! Uluru really impressed me, there was so much to see and do!
After getting a taste for Australia in 2008, I really wanted to go back and road trip the west coast, escape the cities and experience ‘outback’ Australia. Lancelin Sand Dunes were one of my highlights from my 7 day Western Australia road trip. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much WHITE sand in my life! The town of Lancelin is just a short 90 minute drive north of Perth, making it an easy day trip from the city! Continue reading “Lancelin: Sandboarding At The Lancelin Dunes Western Australia!”
