Best Australian countryside escapes

For your next trip, we have compiled for you an out-of-the-box list of beautiful and unusual places to visit while in Australia. Let’s get you off the beaten path and onto the adventure of a lifetime! There is only one way to discover the beauty and dazzling wonders of Australia the right way, and that is through a road trip. Rent a car from Europcar and discover all the beautiful places in the Australian countryside.

If you’re looking for a unique way to take a break from the city life, then taking a road trip to one of these stunning locations will make you feel like you’ve left the daily grind far behind you. Whether you’re set for a short break or a long getaway, there is no greater pleasure than that of taking a road trip, seeing beautiful landscapes, and having a wonderful time on your journey.

Here are some places that you can drive to in order to really experience the true beauty and splendor of the Australian countryside:

Cape Range National Park


This breathtaking area is located right next to Ningaloo Marine Park, and boasts impressive rocky gorges that were carved by ancient rivers adjoining what is arguably one of the most untarnished coastlines in the world. Take a leisurely road trip and discover Yardie Creek, the highlight of any visit to Cape Range National Park.

Ayers Rock and Kata Tjuta


This particular park features wonderful, awe-inspiring geometric formations that perfectly contrast the red sandy plain in this part of Australia. This park has a very rich history, with rock domes that form part of the traditional belief system of the Anangu Aboriginal clan, one of the oldest human societies in the word!



Daylesford is just 90 minutes away from Melbourne, and it’s considered one of the most popular places to go for a short-break in Australia. If you want a great place to stay while touring the country, then this is the place for you. This place offers a wide range of accommodation options and caters to everyone’s tastes. There are great eateries, galleries and shops for just about everything you may want or need. In addition to all that, there are hot mineral baths (over 70 of them!) where you can relax after a day’s drive, and refresh and rejuvenate for the next adventure.

Kakadu National Park


Take a break and explore the Kakadu National Park. This is one of the most visited places in Australia and offers so much more than just clean air. The scenic drive here is a memorable one. Get in touch with your inner self, and enjoy a restorative and relaxing experience that Kakadu National Park offers.

Karijini National Park


Feel like going wild on your break? This is the perfect place to let loose and go wild! Take a drive to Karijini National Park and surround yourself with all the best nature has to offer – wide open spaces, clean air, majestic animals – the perfect escape!
