Chances are you’ll end up starting in Sydney or Brisbane or Cairns if you’re planning on doing a East Coast road trip. This is a great place to get organized, get your crew together, and get your transport. Where you go next is up to you, there’s a lot to consider such as time, budget and interests but one of the main factors a lot of travellers I talk to forget about is the seasons and weather…

Doing a road trip can be a lot of fun but as with all good adventures there’s plenty of opportunity for challenge to rise along the way. For me it’s very important to be traveling with the right people, this can make or break your roady. Try find people with similar interests, traveling style and budgets. If you’re looking for travel mates try checking local hostels or leaving a note on their notice boards, there’s also Facebook groups such as “Australian ride share” and “Australian backpackers”. Gumtree is another great website that can help you find travel mates and is also a great place to look for a second-hand car, same as local noticeboards.

Good luck guys, now you can check out the rest of the blog to find out more.
