There's an entire ecosystem to be explored around Sydney, from majestic mountains to pristine beaches. On this road trip, explore it all at your own pace and style.

Trip Type
Self-Drive
Forget early wake-up calls, scheduled departures and the regular battery of sight-seeing destinations. That's because when you're out on a self-drive holiday, you decide where to go, what to see, and what to drive. And with Self-Drive 365, the road, the destination and that palpable connect between man and machine is all yours to explore!
Skill Level
Easy
Here's a road trip that is suited to those looking for a laid back drive, as well as veterans.
Terrain
Mountain
There's an element of challenge in going up a steep road snaking its way up a mountain; the excitement of tackling relentless switchbacks and blind hairpins makes for a most satisfying road-trip experience. As thrilling as it sounds, driving such routes isn't everybody's cup of tea and requires one to have a certain level of skill behind the wheel. If a driving winding roads overlooking steep valleys and gorges is your idea of a road-trip, then the hills are your calling.
Urban
Road trips are oftentimes an exercise in escaping the daily grind of the urban jungle. But chances are that you will start your journey from a metropolis. Few cities will offer you a good driving environment, which is why we recommend parking your car, calling the cabbie, or like the better citizens of the world, using public transport. Even better, how about hiring a bicycle and pottering around early in the morning? It's good for the heart too.
Coastal
Barrelling down a beach-road in an open-top convertible, wind in your hair and all, is perhaps the first image that the word "road-trip" conjures in your mind. And understandably so, because picture this: you drive into a shack to gorge on the freshest catch from the sea, watching wave after wave crash and foam at the shore, lazily passing the minutes, perhaps even hours, till the sun sets, painting the sky every possible shade of crimson at the same time. There is a romanticism to a coastal road-trip that is hard to do justice to in words.
Forest
Look up and watch the rays of the sun pierce through a thick cover of green, as you drive through an endless tunnel of trees. Few routes are as pleasurable to drive on as those that weave and wind through forests, with air that cleanses your lungs with every breath. All you need to do is keep an eye out for animals that suddenly hop into your path.
