The Golf Travel Group provides several transportation options for your Australian adventure.
Driving (or being driven) in Australia is an experience to be savored. It is a way to experience the wide-open spaces and magnificent natural scenery, and there are so many destinations that can only be experienced by car.
It is important to that note that all measurements in Australia are metric. Distances are in metres and kilometres, and speed in kilometres per hour. Equally important to note is that Australians drive on the left side of the road and the majority of vehicles have the steering wheel on their right side. Roads within and between the populated cities and towns are paved and well maintained, as are the main highways that join the state and territory capital cities. There are usually plenty of well-marked rest areas on major highways, though these are usually very basic and do not always have facilities.
As part of our tours, rental cars, private transfers and motor coaches are all available.
