I love taking road trips in Australia.
Not because of the interesting scenery necessarily, or the little towns that you’ll pass through along the way.
No, it’s just because hitting the highway here really serves to remind you of just how bloody enormous this country actually is. You can literally drive for a couple of days straight without even leaving your state.
As a result, it’s perhaps no surprise that even before you hit the outback it’s not hard to go a very long time without seeing another vehicle at all……
