What better way to travel around Australia than to go on a road trip. Gorgeous beaches and long stretched roads with a number of city locations to visit we are going to discuss why we think you should go on an Aussie road trip.
How to do an Aussie road trip
We always recommend taking a few weeks to carry out your road trip, while you can do most of it in two weeks we believe you need a little time in each location to take in your surroundings and experience life as an Aussie.
One thing we always recommend doing is taking time to save the money before you head off. What many young people tend to do is have enough to get out there and enough for a month, but if they wish to stay a little longer, they either come back to mum and dad or end up having to work out there to be able to fund their trip. You want to save enough to be able to live comfortably and experience things without ever having to worry or skimp for cash.
Not everyone is going to want to make an itinerary, but we recommend making a rough one. It will give you direction for your trip and if you go off of it well who cares! Make sure that you visit every location you really want to and give yourself the time to get there and enjoy any activities or local culture.
Sydney to Perth
If you are thinking of travelling from Sydney to Perth, your journey will roughly be 3,728 miles. There are a few places we think you should travel to along the way including Melbourne, Adelaide, Port Lincoln, Ecula and Esperance before hitting Perth.
Things to do in Sydney
There are so many different things to do in Sydney but if your feeling like a bit of a daredevil we recommend taking the climb up Sydney Harbour Bridge. It is the perfect place to experience Sydney from soaring heights.

When in Esperance you must see Spencer Lake, its a pink salt lake on the Western Australian front. In the right weather conditions, the lake turns extremely pink due to the increase in algae.

There is a so much to do in Perth, but we recommend taking a trip to the race course, you can get a great view of the race course with excellent bars and restaurants.
