Australia has a good network of well maintained roads and highways and, for the more intrepid, plenty of dusty 4WD tracks leading to the outback. Although distances between gateway cities may seem vast, with the right amount of time a self drive holiday can be an enjoyable way to travel independently, stopping at points of interest along the way.
Petrol in Australia comes in super (lead replacement fuel), unleaded, premium unleaded and diesel grades and is sold by the litre. Prices vary from region to region. They are usually higher in country areas and substantially higher in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Petrol stations are plentiful but trading hours vary.
