One of the best ways to experience Australia is by exploring the region doing one of the many tourism drives. Whether you want to do a coastal drive like the famed Victorian Great Ocean Road, or inland drive like the Australia's Country Way, there is no shortage of wonderful scenic touring routes. All states and territories provide a great selection of self-drive routes, there are even some great 4 wheel drive routes that take you where others cannot go.

Some of Australia's greatest drives are quite extensive, crossing state or territory borders, some even traversing the country from the west coast to the east coast. Promoted as Australia's longest shortcut - The Outback Way, links Laverton in Western Australia to Winton in Queensland. This wonderful drive can be extended even further by connecting Perth to Cairns.

Of course, you do not have to do the entire tourism route, as many can be done in sections or you may opt to shorten the drive and take in many of the side detours along the route.

Australia Tourism Drives

The listed touring drives cross state/territory borders. Additional touring routes can be found within each state and territory.
Great Inland Way
The Great Inland Way is one of those great drives in Australia, that actually connects Sydney to Cairns, providing a sort of "off the beaten track" inland drive, as an alternative to the Pacific Coast Touring Route. You can opt to only do the New South Wales section of the drive, from Sydney to the border village of Hebel just on the Queensland side of the border.

New South Wales Great Inland Way - Queensland Great Inland Way
The Outback Way
The Outback Way stretches right across Australia from Laverton, Western Australia in the west to Winton, Queensland in the east, via central Australia and covering some 2,800 km. This spectacular self-drive route can be further extended from Perth on WA's western coast to Cairns, on Queensland east coast.
Pacific Coast Touring Route
This wonderful drive starts in Sydney, New South Wales and follows the east coast all the way to Brisbane or continue on to Cairns in Tropical North Queensland. Of course you may opt to drive from Cairns to Sydney or start in Sydney, NSW and end in Brisbane or you can just do the New South Wales section of the route, starting or stopping at Sydney.
