Self Drive Touring in Australia

For many, part of the pleasure of a self drive or fly drive holiday in Australia is the driving itself. Often the roads are empty and the scenery is just breathtaking. And, of course, Australians drive on the left as we do, so junctions are straightforward and even the signs are familiar – except the koala ones!

There is also no better way to explore Australia or meet Australians than on a self drive. Stop off in the small country towns and see a different way of life, with people who have got time for you and are pleased to show you around. With such an outdoor lifestyle, you will always find picnic areas and cafés to eat in, and well maintained parks and public toilets.

With Freedom Destinations self drives, your hotels are pre-booked for you, so you can enjoy the day without worrying where to stay. Your self drive holiday also includes unlimited kilometres and inclusive insurance with nil excess. One way fees are also included unless otherwise stated.

Driving distances are reasonable, allowing you plenty of time to sightsee on the way. Look out for ‘tourist routes’ off the highways; these are well signed detours that take you through particularly beautiful rural or coastal scenery and lead back to the highway further on.

Or, using your Satellite Navigation unit which we have included, you can plan your own detours to places that you want to see. On a Freedom Destinations self drive you can generally check in to your hotels from 2.00pm onwards, leaving you plenty of time to explore the area where you are staying. And remember, you can ask your Freedom Destinations consultant to add extra days in any places en route that you would like.

Freedom Destinations self drive tours and fly drive holidays give you the freedom of the open road and let you explore Australia your way.
