Travelling Australia – by Road and by Bus

One thing many travellers who come down under to Australia like to do is to hire a car and drive. And why not? There’s an awful lot of roads here – the Number ‘1’ highway is mostly coastal road around the whole country which goes for a total of 14,500 km. That’s a fairly long …
