morry, what is sensible about going to Victoria, any part of it!!

Go NORTH
Up along the coast roads to Darwin, across the top via the Gulf to FNQ down the coast to Sydney, then across Australia to the Alice and home.
You will see nothing else compares to what you have here in WA.

Yes, I'm an ex-Victorian :-))

Hi Morry H,
To your question I would have to say Slowly.
Not that I have done it :(
People have told to do it Slowly, Enjoy each breath and Sun rise.

By the way You missed NSW. As far as I know we still let people cross the boarder. I believe there are more going than coming :-~
There is a lot to see in NSW.
NSW does not stand for Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong. Some would disagree with that statement.
There is the Far North Coast, Tablelands, The Hunter,Southern Highlands, Western Plains, South Coast, Riverina the list goes on and on. Sorry if I left anywhere out.
Each district has it own charms.

Which ever way you guys go, I hope you enjoy it.

I reckon this would depend on when you were leaving.
If it,s cold there go north, if it's hot stay south.
There is nothing wrong with going to SA again!

I agree with anticlockwise. You will use a lot of fuel punching into the Westerly along the bottom on the way home.

I live in the Northwest & would not suggest coming anywhere near the place in summer. Go across the top between May & October. You will avoid the extreme heat & the roads won't be flooded.

If you let us know your style of travel. Caravan, camping, motel etc. We could give you a better idea of places to visit. The Northwest is a magic place to visit in Winter.

morrie

I believe the best way to see Australia is a bit at a time.

Spending a short time in each region, while using the fuel to do the big lap, does not make as much sense as spending the same time, using less fuel, exploring a region more thoroughly. Cheaper and far more relaxing. Only drawback - you can say "I've been everywhere"

We will spend this winter exploring the North West - until it gets too hot.

The whole country is wonderful - enjoy it which ever part you choose.
