Looking over Kununurra from the Lookout in East Kimberley WA

"When we were visiting Kununurra we went to 'Ivanhoe Crossing' which featured in the movie 'Australia' and we also went to 'Kellys Knob Lookout'. Which is where I took this photo from, looking over the town of Kununurra, the crops and the mountain ranges in the distance. A favourite place for watching stunning sunrises and sunsets while having a picnic."

loch ard gorge great ocean road victoria road trip

The Loch Ard Gorge along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria

"Get your camera ready, the Great Ocean Road is famous for spectacular views at every bend in the road and there are many of them. You will experience white capped waves, perfect blue water, sparkling white sand, rugged cliff faces, ancient rainforests and tall trees that look like they could reach the sky.

The 12 Apostles are stunning but I really found the 'Loch Ard Gorge' to be a very under rated attraction. If you get there ask about the shipwreck 'Loch Ard' story, then while you are visiting at the Loch Ard Gorge you can imagine what happened all those years ago.

About 130 kilometres of this coastline is called the 'Shipwreck Coast' where over 50 ships have come to grief and sunk, the 'Loch Ard' being the most famous. Find out more at 'Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village in Warrnambool on the Great Ocean Road one of Australia's famous scenic road trips. "

Explorers Way - Through The Centre Of Australia

Explorers Way is one of Australia's very popular scenic road trips. The Explorers Way travels through the centre of Australia from Adelaide in South Australia to Darwin in the Northern Territory. The journey follows the Stuart Highway and is about 3000 kilometres long.

This drive could take several weeks or months if you want to see and experience everything the Explorers Way, Central Austalia and the Top End has to offer.

My family has travelled the Stuart Highway or 'Explorers Way' several times and found it to be a trip that is so exciting and adventurous. We did all the usual things like visited Coober Pedy, Ayers Rock - Uluru, Alice Springs, Devils Marbles, Daley Waters Hotel, Mataranka, Katherine, Berry Springs and Darwin and Kakadu and so much more.
Although it did have some 'Are we there yet?' moments it is a great Australian road trip, we will always remember and recommend to everyone for an adventure of a lifetime!

"Litchfield National Park has many attractions to admire and enjoy, Florence Falls has two high cascades falling into a refreshing plunge pool. Wangi Falls is a beautiful waterhole with a waterfall you can swim over to and relax underneath it.

There is also Buly Rockholes which we loved swimming in, it more like a fast flowing creek with a series of small cascades and shallow and deep swimming holes. Buley Rockholes was featured in the TV show 'Amazing Race' several years ago."
