We're intending to drive around the Margaret River region of Western Australia - an area we missed out on our last visit (because we couldn't drive and it's a difficult area to see by public transport). Just need a compact car, probably will use one of the more reputable global firms and most likely will look to pick it up in Bunbury.

hi,

I have some relatives overseas arriving in late august and want to spend 5-7 days in a wine region. We live in Sydney, but could fly to Adelaide or Melbourne. Any advice as to which wine regions in NSW or VIC that would be prettiest at that time of year?

Thanks

I'm travelling Australia until early September and I'm based in Warrnambool.

Hi guys,

We've got up to 6 free nights on a trip next year in which we are considering driving between two of the cities we will be visiting. Our itinerary is pretty flexible in terms of the order, so our options are either:

Melbourne - Sydney
Melbourne - GOR - Melbourne
Melbourne - GOR - Adelaide

We already have a number of nights in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne so these 6 nights would purely be able to be spent getting from one place to another.

Given we would be…
