I love roadtrips. We had at least one, usually two or more, roadtrips a year when I was growing up - to Awakeri for Christmas, and often to Wellington for a family event, or somewhere else for a holiday. I still sometimes get seized by an irrational urge to just get in my car and drive. The open road in front of me and the freedom to turn off whenever a road sign catches my fancy is absolute bliss to me.
So. The leave is booked, the camper is booked, the kennel is booked, the cattery is booked...But where are we going to go? The freedom of the camper means we can basically hit the road and go where our fancies take us. At first we were thinking we would do a loop of the southeast corner of the continent, but I'm increasingly leaning towards going north and seeing the Great Barrier Reef instead. There are also some other slightly more far-out options, like driving across the Nullarbor to Perth!
Here are my 4 draft itineraries. Each one is fairly flexible - we might condense some legs or expand others, depending on if we see a nice place to stop or want to keep on driving, or need an extra break. Can you help us choose?
