There’s Nothing Like Australia – Self Drive Holiday

We used to stay in a suburb in New South Wales Australia a few years ago. The town’s name is Wagga Wagga and it means the “land of crows”. We had a small car and we drove around when we were free especially during weekends.

Driving during winter, an experience of a lifetime.

Winter in Falls Creek, loved the snow.

We drove to Canberra for three hours, Melbourne for four and Sydney for five. We even drove up to Falls Creek, a popular ski area in Victoria. The experience was memorable as we breezed through scenic Australian wildness and nature.


Well, that was Victoria and this year I did another self drive trip to Tasmania. I visited Victoria, New South Wales and Canberra in the past but Tasmania was a new experience. You can spot more animals from the road, from wallabies to wombats.

They were everywhere and if you lucky enough you can spot a Tasmanian Devil. Tasmania has the world’s cleanest air and nature at its most original state. The Cradle Mountain and Wine Glass Bay is some of the famous sights in Tassie. Short walks, hiking and biking are some of the things to do in Tasmania.

Your holiday in Tasmania will not be completed with the famous seafood joints at Constitution Deck in Hobart, fresh oysters in Barilla Bay and their infamous curry scallop pies. You can also stay in National Parks and experience the stay in the wild at Freycinet Lodge.

There is no better way to understand and to experience the nature, wilderness, food and the scenery than self drive. Furthermore this is the only place you will be greeted by unexpected wild animals such as Kangaroos, Wallabies, Wombats and many adorable wild animals. That’s why There’s Nothing Like Australia.

Want a different type of ride? Try renting a van instead!
If you are a Malaysian and you plan to self drive in Australia, please check with the car rental company if they will accept your Malaysian driving license. Most places do, but best to double check ahead of your trip. If you are still worried and unsure, you can change your Malaysian driving license to International driving license in JPJ (Road Transport Department) for a small fee.
