Ultimate winter wonderland guide: top holiday destinations you can drive to in Australia

We’re allowed out, the weather’s getting chilly and the desire to see more of our own backyard’s never been stronger!

Here’s where to go if you’re in the ‘throw everything in the boot – like the spacious option of Toyota’s SUVs, like C-HR city SUV – and go’-kind of mood.

NSW – Capertee Valley

Capertee Valley is home to the world’s second largest canyon! Make sure you spend a night (or two) in the cosy comfort Bubble Tent, looking up all the bright stars and falling asleep to the sounds of animals, wind and rain. Of course there’s a wood-fired tub and a fire pit (outside the tent!) to keep you warm and relaxed.

SA – Flinders Ranges and Outback

Snow falls in some rare parts of the Flinders Ranges (if you’re lucky), they said! Driving through the Flinders Ranges and Outback, you’d probably think that you’re in another planet, as the surroundings might be something you had never seen before! Don’t forget to pay a visit to the beautiful nature spring, Coward Springs. How springs, cold weather, good times – what more could you ask for?

Perfect destination for those who enjoy skiing and snowboarding! But don’t worry if you’re not a sport enthusiast, other fun experiences are also available in this region during winter season e.g. music festivals and wine tasting.

Snowy Mountains

During winter, this magnificent mountain will be transformed to a snow covered wonderland which would be a perfect place for tobogganing and a beautiful view for your Instagram content.

For those in WA who are desperately longing for the enchanting misty mornings while sipping their hot milky tea, this is the place you’ve been looking for!
