The Skoda Kodiaq is an excellent vehicle to take you anywhere in Australia. It’s comfortable, fun to drive, has bags of space, and it’s packed with safety tech. Sadly, some drivers don’t take full advantage of their Kodiaq, and they stick to the city and highways. In this article, we will look at four Aussie roads that you should drive.
- Victoria: Lake Mountain Road
Many people make their way up to the family friendly resort of Lake Mountain in Victoria for the skiing. However, it’s alas a magnet for petrolheads looking to enjoy this stunning drive. In fact, Top Gear Australia named the Lake Mountain Road one of the best driving roads in the country for a very good reason. The drive isn’t particularly challenging, but it’s a gradual ascent offering vistas of the stunning Yarra Ranges National Park. Because the curves are quite gentle, you will be able to take in the fantastic and unique scenery that has been left by Black Saturday bushfires.
- South Australia: Adelaide Hills
The Adelaide Hills is a network of interconnected winding and challenging road. Driving them will make you feel spoilt for choice, it’s no accident that they are famous for the Tour Down Under annual cyclist racing event and both the Classic and Targa Adelaide rallies. Expect challenging twisting bends, rolling and pitching gradients and a jaw dropping backdrop to drive through. The Adelaide Hills will provide a pure driving experience that any petrolhead can enjoy again and again without becoming jaded by familiarity.
- Victoria: Great Ocean Road
Back to Victoria for driving route number three and this time we’re visiting the Great Ocean Road. This 243 km stretch of road is listed on National Heritage, and it was constructed to honour our soldiers that lost their lives in WW1. It’s a very well known driving road here in Australia, and it’s also visited by many foreign tourists. Great Ocean Road weaves through sheer cliffs, rainforests, picturesque towns and passes through some of the best surfing beaches in the world. Lovers of food and wine will not be disappointed as the road skirts famous wineries and restaurant where you can stop and recharge your batteries before continuing.
- Northern Territory: Lasseter Highway
The 244 km stretch of the Lasseter Highway offers you an unparalleled road tripping experience. The surrounding views reach right to the horizon and passes through some of the most awe inspiring sights in the country. The highlights include areas, such as Kata, Tjuta, and Uluru. The Lasseter Highway goes from Uluru east where it connects up to the Stuart Highway. The driving is sedate and filled with atmosphere, roll down your window, turn up the audio and cruise through some of the most amazing natural beauty that you can find anywhere in the Northern Territory.
