With tourism coming in as the third biggest industry in Australia, lots of interesting events have started to pop up across the minor interior to cater for visitors and locals alike. While you’ll discover the energy and the isolation of the outback, you’ll also experience the vibrancy of some of Australia’s hidden gems.
Many of the big RV and caravan shows have increased in size over the last several years, showing a marked increase in self-drive tours across the country. Recent tourism research in Western Australia has shown a nice spread of intra/interstate, and international tourists taking in the sights.
You would be forgiven for thinking that 4WD, caravanning, and RVing are fast becoming an Aussie tradition as more and more people discover the freedom of the open road, but we have long known the benefits of hitting the highway for a memorable holiday.
The Dryandra Country Art, Food and Wine Trail has been building in popularity over the last couple of years in a pretty and accessible region of southern Western Australia. It is definitely worth the visit if you are thinking of heading out west for some scenic touring in autumn.
