The drive between Sydney and Melbourne might be one of Australia’s best kept secrets. A tale of two cities linked by two remarkable but quite different driving routes that totally capture the heart and spirit of Australia.

Follow the dramatic beauty of the coast and take time out to pause and breathe. This is a drive of quiet seaside towns, surf beaches playing host to sea-loving kangaroos, and ancient ranges draped in lush green forests and a profusion of national parks. Where you can follow rainforest wilderness trails, taste the freshest seafood and delight in the sheer abundance of native wildlife, including the sight of little penguins waddling safely home, after a day at sea.

Alternatively, journey back through time. Take the road less travelled and head inland on a drive through Australia’s pioneering history. Immerse yourself in a landscape shaped by the country’s early settlers, the river traders and those on the gold rush trail seeking fortune and fame. Linger a while on the banks of the might Murray River and discover the cultural delights of the Canberra, Australia’s, small but perfectly formed capital city.
