Two years ago we did a 4 week road trip along the Great Ocean Road, across to Mt Gambier and up through Victoria's high country. It was a fabulous holiday that I'd recommend to anyone.

Have you done a road trip holiday? Where did you go?

We've made the most of living in Continental Europe (as opposed to a small island just off the coast!) where there are practically no borders, to have several road trip holidays. Driving through France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg.... great fun. There are still lots of places we didn't get to though!
Lucky you!
Last year I did a 15 hour one with my son and his wife, and my two little grandchildren from Sydney to Brisbane.(In one day!).
It was so wonderful, we stopped at places along the way and the children were so good.
Road trip to Great Ocean road, it was a day trip. We did a two day road trip to Yarra valley. We went during autumn and it was surely the best time. So picturesque
We went to Rainbow Beach & Fraser Island! A very good trip indeed! Was so scary when we got stuck in mud and had to get help getting the car across! Later found out we followed the GPS onto 'Offroad' instead of staying on the main highway! It was good fun though~
I've done a few....it's a great way to see the sights. My favourite was 2 months across America and Canada, so many beautiful things to see.
I did a road trip to Adelaide (from Melbourne). It was much better than expected - the road is absolutely stunning along the SA coast!
We did a fantastic road trip from Brisbane to Sydney for my cousin's wedding - so many perfect beaches and cafes along the way and highly recommended.

I have really not done a road trip in the sense of a road trip. I carried my family to visit our parents which is about a 4 - 5 hr trip. That's about it.
We drove a camper van from Sydney to 'do' the Great Ocean Road in 2011, the year of the terrible flooding in Queensland which then moved onto Victoria. It rained everyday, the van was full of wet shoes and towels, the roof leaked, the Ocean Road was closed just after we decided to get off it (small landslides) the kids were skimming along the flood water in the campsite on their body boards. Part of the road getting back onto the highway was washed away and we had to get out and lift branches of fallen trees out of the way. It was nothing compared to all,those poor families in Queensland though.
We've done several:

Melbourne to Alice Springs via Uluru and return - 5,400 kms

Melbourne to Adelaide along the Western Highway and return - 1,600 kms

Melbourne to Broken Hill via Mildura then Adelaide and retrund to Melbourne - 3,200kms

Melbourne to Mt Gambier

Melbourne to Booligal via Echuca and Hay

Melbourne to Apolla Bay along the Great Ocean Road

Melbourne to Bonegilla via Albury Wodonga with a detour to Holbrook

We're addicted to road trips. The next one we have planned will be about 8,500 kms and take almost three months. (Fingers crossed)
