Here at Cocobella, we tend to agree that there is no greater joy than a) spending time in the great outdoors and, b) being surrounded by those you love. Our favourite activity to combine the two? Road trips!
As the days grow longer and the weather gets warmer (we believe in you, sun!) it’s time to pack your bags, grab a map and embrace mother nature in all her springtime glory. Let’s get back to basics, feel inspired and spend some quality time with our friends and family whilst checking out all our beautiful country has to offer. You won’t regret it!
Read on, as we explore the top 6 destinations for road trip adventures with friends. It’s just us and the open road….
- Victoria: Great Ocean Road
If breathtaking coastal scenery is on your radar, you truly can’t beat the wonder of the Great Ocean Road. Ideal for those seeking a forest escape, a culinary adventure or an awe-inspiring walk. However, don’t forget to rug up. Despite the season, it tends to get a little chilly down south.
- New South Wales: Grand Pacific Road
Beginning at the Royal National Park and heading down along the coast, the Grand Pacific Drive takes you through a myriad of beautiful terrains, from lush rainforests to tiny and peaceful seaside towns. And, a real highlight (and not for the faint-hearted) The Sea Cliff Bridge, that swerves out from the cliffs above the sea below.
- Queensland: Mt Tambourine
Located an easy 1-hour drive from Brisbane lies the lush Tambourine Mountain National Park. Experience this stunning tropical rainforest by foot, keeping an eye out for brightly coloured exotic birds and plants. A truly tranquil and breathtaking break from the everyday.
- Western Australia: The Southwest
Explore the best of both worlds in WA’s Southwest region. From soaring to great heights amongst tree-top views, to deep-diving in the clear still waters of the Indian Ocean, there is an adventure to get any heart racing.
- South Australia: Kangaroo Island
If you’re feeling the call that it’s time to get off the beaten track, it’s time to explore Kangaroo Island! With over 1 600 kilometers of winding and picturesque routes to wander, the scenic beaches and windswept terrain will offer the breath of fresh air you have been waiting for!
- Tasmania: Cradle Country
Adventure through the North Coast of our island state with this beautiful 226 kilometer drive, stopping by organic farms, rural townships and breathtaking nature-views. A fun fact? Tasmania is the birthplace of competitive wood chopping. Now, you wouldn’t want to miss out on that, would you!?
