SELF-DRIVE & rules of the road

SELF-DRIVE - THE ULTIMATE HOLIDAY

A self-drive holiday provides you with flexibility to suit your needs creating opportunities to explore breathtaking scenery and

local culture. Whether you choose to stay close to the cities or go off the beaten track – you have complete control of your

holiday. Enjoy an Ultimate Holiday and choose from one of the featured self-drive options.

Rental Cars

Driving in Australia is a very popular option for New Zealanders. While the highways can be busy, the roads are generally in excellent condition and well sign-posted.

You may take your rental car into different states however if you are planning on returning to a different state from where you collected your vehicle it may pay to

check the one way hire fee as these can be expensive depending on the distance, in particular if you are driving to Western Australia and or the Northern Territory.

All our rental car companies offer a large range of vehicles to cater for a single passenger up to a large family or group.

When choosing your rental car, take into consideration the size of the vehicle you require. Think about the length of time you will need the car and how far you

plan to travel. For longer trips you will be more comfortable in a larger car especially if you plan to do a bit of shopping along the way!

Motorhomes

What better way to explore Australia than being in your ‘home away from home’. Motorhomes not only include your transportation but it is also your

accommodation on wheels, so no need to worry about packing and unpacking all the time. You have the freedom to explore the vast countryside and unique

experiences away from the cities and highways. Once you have had enough for the day, park up and settle in for the night.

We have a number of different motorhome options to suit your needs.

Drive Australia - Rules of the Road

If you intend to hire a vehicle in Australia, it is important for both your safety and enjoyment, that you understand the rules of the road.

Road rules

• Drive on the left side of the road.

• Do not drink and drive. In Australia, drinking and driving is considered a very serious offence.

Roadside testing units to check the blood alcohol level in motorists are very common. The alcohol

limit is 0.05.

• Speed limits vary from state to state, so you should pay attention and adhere to the posted speed

limits. As a general rule the top speed limit in most states is 110kms/hour and 40-60kms/hour in

residential or commercial areas.

• When facing a ‘Stop’ or ‘Give Way’ sign you must bring your vehicle to a complete stop.

• Give way to pedestrians who are crossing the street into which you are turning, whether you are

turning left or right.

• Do not cross double broken lines or an unbroken line on your side of a broken line.

• At T-junctions the driver approaching the intersection along the terminating road must give way to

all traffic on the continuing road, unless the other traffic has a ‘Stop’ or ‘Give Way’ sign.

• ‘Hook signs’ are found only in central Melbourne. The sign may be at the side of the road or hung

from tram wires. If you need to turn right at one of these intersections you must make a ‘hook turn’.

Begin your right turn from the left lane.

• Do not overtake other traffic when: approaching a pedestrian or school crossing or an intersection,

approaching the crest of a hill, on a blind corner, where there are double unbroken lines or an

unbroken line on your side of the centre line.

• Drivers entering a roundabout must give way to the traffic already entering or leaving the roundabout.

• Headlights must be used while driving between the hours of sunset or sunrise.

• If you are involved in an accident you must notify the police immediately. You should then contact

your nearest rental car depot.

• Road Tolls – There are a number of road tolls throughout Australia. We recommend visiting

www.mtRTA.com prior to your departure from New Zealand to ensure you have the most up-to-date

information based on where you plan on driving in Australia. There are hefty fines for all cars with

out an E-Tag.

Day 1: Melbourne to Lorne (Distance 142kms – 2 hours)

From Melbourne travel towards Geelong along the Princes Highway, stopping

at Werribee Park which features an award winning historic mansion and the

Werribee Open Range Zoo, an ‘Out of Africa’ adventure. Geelong’s new

waterfront is a popular attraction to take a break.

Then it’s on to Torquay Australia’s surfing capital with beautiful beaches, a

surfing museum, and a great shopping centre devoted to surfwear and surfing

merchandise. Torquay is the official start of the Great Ocean Road, where it

begins to wind its way through Angelsea and onto Lorne. With the ocean on

one side and rainforest behind, Lorne is a cosmopolitan beachside destination,

popular for swimming and surfing. Overnight: Lorne

Day 2: Lorne to Warrnambool (Distance 120kms – 3 hours 15 minutes)

The road hugs the coastline to Apollo Bay, providing spectacular lookout

opportunities along the way. Apollo Bay is set in the picturesque green foothills

of Otway National Park and boasts long sandy beaches and deep-blue sea.

Sample some freshly caught seafood.

The Great Ocean Road briefly leaves the coast as you head through Otway

National Park where you’ll marvel at mighty fern gullies, huge trees, beautiful

waterfalls and native animals in the lush temperate rainforest. For a bird’s eye

view, take a walk along the 600-metre long Otway Fly Tree Top canopy walk.

As the Great Ocean Road returns to the coast, the majesty of the Port

Campbell National Park quickly begins to unfold. Colossal rock stacks soar

from the ocean floor and blowholes roar with spouting water. The massive

Twelve Apostles are a highlight. See them from the boardwalk or for truly

awe-inspiring scenery and breathtaking photographic opportunities take a

helicopter flight with Great Ocean Road Helicopters. More of nature’s beauty

is revealed in the Bay of Islands Coastal Park on the drive to Warrnambool.

The picturesque city overlooks the deep blue of the Southern Ocean and has a

fascinating maritime history. Visit Flagstaff Hill, a State Heritage Listed Maritime

Precint and in the evening experience ‘Shipwrecked’, a sound and laser

spectacular that tells the tragic story of the Loch Ard disaster on a 9-metre

aqua screen. Overnight: Warrnambool

village of Port Fairy. Steeped in history and charm, Port Fairy’s culture and

architecture have been beautifully preserved.

Nearing the Grampians, the pristine beauty and enormity of the ranges becomes

apparent as they begin to dominate the horizon. In the Grampians National

Park, you’ll discover hidden valleys, waterfalls, lakes and wildlife. Explore the

region on one of the many walks in the magnificent Halls Gap area and soak up

the breathtaking views from the spectacular lookouts. Overnight: Halls Gap

Day 4: Halls Gap to Ballarat (Distance 142kms – 1 hours 45 minutes)

The touring route continues onto Ballarat and along the way you can take a

self-guided tour of the wine regions of the Pyrenees, Grampians and Ballarat

and learn the intimate secrets of some of Australia’s best cool-climate wines

along the Great Grape Touring Route. In Ararat you’ll find Gum San Chinese

Heritage Centre, which re-lives the journey and story of gold prospectors from

Southern China and their discovery of Australia’s largest alluvial goldfield.

The legacy of the boom from the gold rush days is evident in the majestic

architecture and wide tree-lined streets of Ballarat. Strike gold at Sovereign Hill,

the city’s major attraction recreating the gold fever that gripped Australia in the

1850’s. Sovereign Hill is brought to life in this outdoor living museum, which

features a working bakery, blacksmith, lolly shop and main street with troopers.

At night ‘Blood on the Southern Cross’ depicts the 1854 Eureka Stockade, the

only civil uprising when miners took on the authorities. It’s a spectacular sound

and light show not to miss! Overnight: Ballarat

Yarra Valley, Phillip Island &

the Mornington Peninsula

4 days / 3 nights from Melbourne

Day 1: Melbourne to Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges

(Distance 56kms – 1 hour)

From Melbourne take the Eastern Freeway out towards Ringwood and

then onto the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges. Spend the morning on

Australia’s favourite steam train, Puffing Billy. Now 110 years old, Puffing Billy

chugs along a 24km track through vast forest, fern gullies, farmlands and

villages on daily scenic excursions.

For lunch the Yarra Valley offers mouth watering options for either a casual

lunch or a complete food and wine experience. The beautiful De Bortoli Yarra

Valley Estate has a cellar door featuring the estate’s superb cool climate

wines, a cheese shop which matures local and international cheeses and the

very stylish Locale Restaurant which matches rustic Italian cuisine to

De Bortoli wines. There are more than 90 wineries with cellar doors in the

Valley so the only problem will be which one to choose from.

If time allows after lunch travel out to Healesville Sanctuary for a walk amongst

the 200 native Australian species including koalas, kangaroos, platypus,

reptiles and many colourful birds. Overnight: Yarra Valley

Day 2: Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges to Phillip Island

(Distance 140kms – 1 hour 30 minutes)

Only 90 minutes drive south from the Yarra Valley through Pakenham, down

the Bass Highway, is Phillip Island. This is a little gem of an island, with great

natural beauty, plentiful wildlife, colourful seaside villages to explore and an

intriguing choice of attractions from pure fun to pumped-up action.

In the morning visit the Chocolate Factory for a sensational chocolate fix.

You can make your own chocolate at the Amazing World of Chocolate

exhibition, see the chocolate factory, and sip real hot chocolate at the café

and stock up on supplies. An outrageously delicious experience.

For lunch choose from either Churchill Island Heritage Farm or A Maze ‘N’

Things both attractions have a café to enjoy. Wander around the historic farm

with its mellow old buildings, beautiful gardens and walking tracks or take the

wild path and go crazy in A Maze ‘N’ Things with its crazy optical illusions,

puzzles, maze and memory tests.

Phillip Island is home to the largest little penguin colony in the world, and is

Australia’s most popular wildlife attraction. Up to 1000 penguins emerge from

the sea in the evening, heading across the beach to their sand dune burrows.

Ensure you book a Penguin Parade Tour for the viewing so you don’t miss out.

Overnight: Phillip Island

dissatisfied with some aspect of the services or facilities

during the course of your trip, our recommendation is that

you take the matter up directly with the supplier of the service

at the time, or as soon as practicable in the circumstances.

This provides the opportunity to have the matter discussed

and investigated on the spot and a remedy negotiated then

and there to enable you to continue enjoying your holiday. We

have found from experience that it is very difficult (in some

countries impossible) for us to obtain redress for you once

travel has been completed. If this does not work, we wish to

be involved at the earliest possible moment and our

commitment is that we will immediately work on resolving the

issue to your satisfaction.

14 Health or Disability

Some Suppliers may reserve the right to refuse to carry or

accommodate people who because of a health condition or

special manner. You should check this with your travel agent.
