Touring Australia in a motorhome
by Karen Johnston
My husband and I are trying to decide how to spend 5 weeks in Australia and see as much as we can. We will start in Melbourne and pick up a motorhome after visiting friends there.
We will have to pick a route to cover the most area and would like to see Alice Springs and that surrounding area (Ayers Rock, etc) and then drive to the Great Barrier Reef - maybe Cairns? - and then wander around the coast and some inland areas back to Melbourne.
Would it be feasible to drive the motorhome from Melbourne to Alice Springs to Cairns or would we have trouble in April with campervan overnight spots, weather, fuel?
Any suggestions as to the roads we would take for the 1st half of our trip - Melbourne to Alice to Cairns?
Thanks so much!
