Welcome everyone and a special thanks to all new subscribers.
Highway One goes all the way around Australia including travelling through Tasmania. Highway One is about 15,000 kilometres plus any sidetracking and exploring that is done.
So 15,000 kilometres can easily can turn into 20,000 kilometres or more and at least six months of travelling. Australia has beautiful beaches, coastal towns and coastline landscapes that you will able to see and visit from the Highway One.
If you get off the 'Highway One' road as often as you can you will discover so much more like small country towns, National parks, rivers and lakes that can be explored and you will discover some great interesting treasures.
Happy travelling everyone.
