On the Road

Square Perspectives Photo Challenge ~ Australian Landscapes #31

Destination: Australia

Many Australians love a good road trip and, with more than 900,000 kilometres of roads in Australia, there are plenty of places to go.

For a great road trip, leave the major highways and explore the country roads – your journey will be an adventure.

You’ll travel on single lane roads,

and wide dirt roads. Don’t get too close to anyone in front or you’ll be covered in bulldust!

Sometimes you’ll need to go around obstacles,

over cattle grids,

and through farm gates. Make sure you shut the gate behind you.

You’ll find paved roads hand built by pioneers,

and record breaking roads which opened up the interior.

Sometimes you’ll share the road with large vehicles,

or large pedestrians. Don’t argue about who has right of way with either.

So next time you’re thinking about a road trip pack your bags, start up the car and head off the main roads. If you want to see the best of Australia, country roads are the only way to go.

See this post from 2013 for more Australian country roads.

While our travel plans are on hold I’ve joined in every day with Becky’s July Square Perspectives Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. Thanks Becky, it’s been a fun month. The rules are simple: photos must be square and fit the theme of perspective. My posts represent the definition of perspective as a vista – seeing something over distance or time.

  1. I love open roads too! Not much chance of those in the UK, though Scotland can be quiet away from the big cities. I loved driving in Australia and the USA and South Africa. Can’t see that happening again.

  2. We so enjoyed driving and exploring Australia when we visited. Well once we got used to driving on the opposite side of the road. The wildlife, especially in Tasmania at night, left one wide eyed and alert! So much to explore in your beautiful country. We barley scratched a corner of it.

  3. Wow. Post is to my mind!!! I love road trips in my country and abroad. Your longest strait road is about as long as our longest highways are. They are not strait, because drivers need to be awake and they have to bypass many lakes which we have a lot of.

    Have a good day!

  4. You make Australia look so empty! All those roads in a sort of blankness. Where do they go?
