How many days, weeks, or possibly even months have you spent wondering where to go for your next road trip? It can be a pain trying to decide whether to go to your favourite spot that has never let you down over the years or to try explore somewhere new. If you are looking to go somewhere new this winter consider taking inspiration from these destinations.
At Camptoo we have done some research into where we think the best place to visit in the colder winter months in Australia (June-August) are and marked the most popular spots on the map above. Not surprisingly, we chose destinations that are located in the top half of the country where the weather is not too cold, sitting between 15 to 20 degrees celcius.
