Before coming to Australia, the notion of driving all day for one day and night somewhere seemed insane. Being from the UK, a car journey of seven hours would take us to another country. Not so much the case in Australia, and definitely not the case for Perth road trips!

The average Aussie thinks nothing of driving three or more hours for a ‘day out’, before driving back again the same day. The beauty of the Aussie Road Trip is that driving times tend to be spot on. Plus, there are SO many incredible Australian landmarks to tick off, you’d be hard-pressed to visit Austalia and NOT go on a road trip!

With the exception of major cities, there is often very little other traffic to contend with on the roads. As cities go, Perth is relatively small and also pretty remote. As such, Perth road trips can be among some of the longest and loneliest on the planet.

We spent three months in the South West corner of Western Australia, in Margaret River. We had our own car too, so we had ample opportunity to explore the areas surrounding Margs and Perth on weekends away and day trips.

We feel that we managed to squeeze as much out of our time in WA as possible, and want to help you do the same! So, we’ve handily collated our seven most unmissable Perth road trip itinerary options for you, along with drive times and distances.

All that you have to do now is fill up the car, grab your mates, and hit the open road.

Get Perth Road Trip Ready

Before you head off towards the sunset, make sure you’ve got all your supplies ready to go. We’ve included some handy links straight to the products here for you, to save you time!

We were never without our Lonely Planet West Coast Australia which was an absolute lifesaver. It gives great accommodation recommendations, places to eat and visit, as well as detailed maps and city/town guides.

We also struggled to get radio signal for most of our road trips, so you’re best off buying either a jack cable to plug into your radio, or depending on how old your car is, a bunch of CDs and a CD wallet.

You’ll also need a decent water container as journeys can be long, so it’s always safest to be prepared. A jerry can wouldn’t go amiss too – sometimes petrol stations are incredibly few and far between!
