You have anything you want in your adventure when you decide to drive around such a place, you can get your history lesson while learning about the modern art scene in the same hour.

Sydney boasts itself as being a cultural mega hub for all types of people from all over the world. You can learn about the aboriginal life or take a trip to the beach and surf with the gang out in the water and the big waves. Sydney is truly like nowhere else on earth, and you will most definitely learn why so many people choose to make it their new home every year. Have your petrol tank full, as the outskirts of Sydney are quite desolate!

Recommended 7 seater minivan rental drives Sydney

Blue Mountains

No trip to Sydney is complete without visiting the The Blue Mountains and the Western Plains, where sandstone rocks cascade on the hills and make beautiful designs that are unique to this area. You’ll see aboriginal sites that date back to almost 22,000 years, which is very rarely seen in others places in the world. Taking a step back in history and admiring the landscape is easy to do, if you just follow the M4 Motorway from Sydney to Glenbrook/Lapstone. You can also enjoy some walks around places like Katoomba.


Bathhurt is the home of wine just outside of Sydney and is also the oldest inland settlement in Australia, located only 200 kilometres from Sydney itself. Here, you’ll bask in the Bathurst Basin and see the Great Diving Range – the third-longest range in the entire world.

Grand Pacific Drive

If you were to head only 140kms out of the city itself, you’ll find yourself on the Grand Pacific Drive. Here, you’ll go through cities like Bateman’s Bay and Wollongong. The real treasure to be seen here however is the Sea Cliff Bridge that offers awesome panoramic sea views of the ocean, as well as visiting and tramping through the Minnamurra rainforest and the flowers of the Illawarra coastline. For outdoor enthusiasts, taking a trip outside of Sydney is well worth the long drives. You’ll get incredible views, a lesson in history, and get to enjoy quality nature all in the same day.
