Did you know there are over 100 national parks, conservation reserves, wildlife reserves, state parks, regional parks and heritage parks dotted between Melbourne and Sydney inland and along the coast?
It's amazing to consider that almost in any direction between Melbourne and Sydney within an hour's drive you can find a piece of Australia put aside for conservation, recreation and wildlife.
Hitting the highway to experience one of the best road trips the country has to offer requires some venturing into natural places and experiencing wildlife like kangaroos, penguins, dolphins, seals, kookaburras and reptiles.
