Heading to the snow?

Our road trip includes the Thrifty Snow Pass so why not check out our ultimate guide for driving to the snow. 

To kick start your education for driving in snow, we have created a handy infographic to cover the key things you need to remember and do, including driving with snow chains, and keeping an eye on the road conditions.

 

NSW

Hit the road and explore the mountains and valleys, the national parks and all the regional attractions that the Greater Blue Mountains has to offer.

This little pocket of goodness is found a little back from the coastline between Cairns and Townsville, so it is sometimes overlooked for the world-class beaches and reefs along the shoreline.

This four-day Perth to Kalgoorlie drive offers the best of Western Australia in a nutshell, from the nightlife of Perth to the beaches of Fremantle and the history and iconic red landscapes of Kalgoorlie and its surrounds.
