If you travel between Sydney and Melbourne you can take your chance to drive the Great Alpine Road. You will encounter the Snowy Mountains and the National Park area with Australia’s highest mountain, Mount Kosciuko.
Fun Fact: On Mount Kosciuko you can also find the world’s highest public toilet. And you can drive almost directly by car – to the highest peak in Australia. It’s true, check out the Street View image! 🙂
If you choose to travel from Sydney to Melbourne inland, e.g. over the Great Alpine Road, you drive past Canberra, so to speak. In this case we recommend a short stop in the capital – otherwise, you can also skip it.
