The Best, Worst & Weirdest Moments of Our First Road Trip

Road Trip 2

Our first Australian road trip took us all the way from Melbourne in the far east to Margaret River in the far west.

We traversed the country, driving nearly 4,000km in total. we averaged 8 hours behind the wheel a day and spent 6 nights sleeping under the stars. It was certainly an adventure!

Here’s a round-up of the best, worst & weirdest moments of the longest drive I’ve ever embarked on.

The provincial museums inside the road houses celebrating the finite history of each town.

Every township having its own Unique Selling Point such as a big tin bird, the longest jetty in the southern hemisphere, having more than 5 inhabitants etc.
