#RoamAustralia with Europcar

Australia is a land of diverse beauty. While many of us dream of travelling overseas, sometimes I think we underappreciate what’s in our own backyard.

From snow and great food in the south to water-based adventures and long lazy afternoons in the North-  Australia has you covered.

To celebrate Australia’s beauty, and help you explore more of this great country, Europcar wants to help you create your own #RoamAustralia memories by offering an AU$5,000 escape!
This awesome prize includes two flights to Melbourne, 5 days luxury car hire, and $2000 to spend on creating your own amazing itinerary.

To enter, upload your best Australian travel snaps using the Facebook app or post on Instagram with the #RoamAustralia

For a little bit of inspiration, here are some of my favourite photos from my own #RoamAustralia journeys!

Victoria

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Victoria-YarraValley-Rochford

Escape Melbourne and head into the Yarra Valley for scenic roads, great wine and even better food!
This photo was taken at Rochford Winery.

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Victoria-Marysville

Road trips are great for exploring the lesser known highlights,
like this stop at Saladin Lodge, located just outside Marysville.

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Victoria-PhillipIsland-TheNobbies

Spend a day with koalas, wallabies, and Little Penguins on Phillip Island.
Don’t forget to stop for a stroll along the boardwalk at The Nobbies!

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Victoria-Geelong-Bollard-People

Just an hour outside of Melbourne in Geelong you’ll find these colourful figures
– the Bollard People – along the city’s waterfront.

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Victoria-GreatOceanRoad-BellsBeach

One of the most famous surf beaches in the world, if you take a road trip down
the Great Ocean Road be sure to stop at Bells Beach!

Tasmania

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Tasmania-Hadspen-RedFeatherInn

Driving through Launceston? Stop at the Red Feather Inn for a quaint, comfortable sleep and an exceptional meal!

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Tasmania-BayOfFires

The Bay of Fires is a highlight on any great Tasmanian drive,
but come winter it is yours to enjoy by yourself.

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Tasmania-Bridestowe-Estate

Come December the lavender fields at Bridestowe Estate are transformed into a sea of purple,
but even in winter the lines make for scenic photos (and the lavender ice cream is still on sale!)

Queensland

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Queensland-MagneticIsland-Padimellon-Joey

Venture over to Magnetic Island and feed the wild rock wallabies just before sunset.

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Queensland-Townsville-HolidayInn-View

Or catch the sunset from the balcony of your room at the Holiday Inn Townsville!

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Queensland-Townsville-ShawAndCo-Cocktail

Explore Townsville’s hippest spot, City Lane, with a trademark Fairy Floss Windmill from Shaw & Co
(be sure to try their meatballs as well – yum!)

Europcar-RoamAustralia-Queensland-MagneticIsland-Jo

When you’re exploring Top North Queensland, there is no better way to explore than on a boat!
