Driving Long Distances

When driving it is important to plan and allow enough time to travel the long distances we have in Australia. Below is a distance chart outlining kilometres between major cities. We recommend you allow approximately 200-300 kilometres driving per day. Arriving in the afternoon and staying 2 nights provides the best opportunity to see the area you are in. This way you can take a day off driving and stay longer at that special place you weren't expecting and easily catch up the distance the following day.

Driving at Night

Please avoid driving at night when outside of towns or cities. Wildlife, especially kangaroos, can be very dangerous on our roads, particularly at sunrise and sunset. This is when animals are most active because they are looking for food. The most common animals that you could encounter on the Australian roads are: kangaroos, wallabies, cattle, emus, camels, wombats, echidnas, galas and cockatoos.
