The Best Road Trip Songs EVER


"The road trip songs are humming, the sun is shining - It really is a beautiful day!"

Picture the scene...you have downloaded your favourite road trip songs, you are cruising along the highway, admiring the stunning coastline, blue skies, white beaches and turquoise waters...it really doesn't get much better than this...

The right music can really make a difference - especially for Australia Road Trips. That's because it's a huge country so you generally have to travel long distances between sites or the best towns.

So my advice is to stock up on all of your favourite tunes before you go and create yourself the most awesome playlist to ensure an amazing road trip.
