On the road: Drive the incredible Sea Cliff Bridge on New South Wales' South Coast.

Winter is the perfect time for an on-the-road adventure with plenty of great road trip destinations within easy reach of Australia's capital cities.

Active types can hit the trails at Cradle Mountain or enjoy year round swimming at Litchfield National Park.

Foodies may prefer to fill their picnic basket with delicious Clare Valley treats or chat with friendly providores along the Poacher's Way, one of Australia's newest food trails. Or you could always head to Noosa for a leisurely lunch.

So, what are you waiting for? It's time to hit the road!
