Australia’s Country Way

OUR COUNTRY. OUR WAY, 1380KM, Sydney, Rockhampton

Australia's Country Way

Australia’s Country Way guides you to the delights and treasures that pepper the countryside of the Great Dividing Range. From Sydney to Central Queensland the holiday is as much about savouring the journey as reaching a destination.

Winding roads reveal sweeping vistas, seasonal produce, and welcoming hospitality – Australia’s Country Way is the classic road trip. Kilometres of crops and grazing livestock flank the road, interrupted by stunning natural formations and welcoming towns imbued with history. Accommodation ranges from the ubiquitous friendly roadside motel to cosy cabins, luxury retreats, romantic B&Bs and farm stays.

Like a giant smorgasbord Australia’s Country Way uncovers the true-blue producers and no shortage of ways to enjoy the country harvest. Each region has a claim to culinary fame and restaurants, fine dining, cafes, cellar doors and delis harness these assets along the route.

Explore the wine regions of the Hunter Valley, Tamworth, New England, Granite Belt and South Burnett regions. Enjoy the fruit and vegetables around Stanthorpe and Warwick. Uncover the bountiful citrus, beef and grain growing districts of the Darling Downs, Burnett, Gayndah, Mundubbera and Rockhampton. Drop a line for freshwater fish at the dams and lakes adjoining Australia’s Country Way. You will find trout and many other species readily available.
