Australia has a land mass of 7.7 million square kilometer, it is a
sparsely populated country. That is why; it’s quite large distance
between two major cities that lies inside the Australia. For instance,
it takes 12 hours to reach Sydney from Melbourne and take around 10-12
hour to reach Brisbane from Sydney.
It’s not quite tough job to hire a car in the Sydney because you can
explore several number of car hire firms situated around the city. Car
hiring is not necessarily recommended for everyone even though it’s easy
to hire car in Sydney. Finding parking areas are almost impossible and
there is always heavy traffic on the city roads. Therefore, if you’re
not a patient driver possessing a good sense of direction then you
better avoid the peak hours at all costs. However, Car turns out the
must if you’re planning on driving in the outback or outside the city.
If you’re planning to drive alongside the road on unsealed track then
firstly, you better take advice from the locals about your journey as
well as ensure that you’ve already told some one in your touch about
your travel plan. It’s necessary to do so because you may get
unfortunately lost at those unsealed track. If your vehicle suddenly
breaks down in a remote area then you should stay along with your car
because people staying with their broken down car are found more quickly
than those who deserted it. If you desire to travel across designated
Aboriginal land, then you must have to take permission of the owner in
Extreme climate is the other things that you need to be aware of while
travelling in the outback. Especially, such extreme climates are faced
in the Northern provinces. The road conditions that will differ
extremely; poor, rough, and potholed surfaces are not rare.
Another matter to be considered along with these issues is wildlife.
You’ll need to be more vigilant during night travel because local
wildlife such as foxes, kangaroos, wallabies and dingoes often stray
onto the roads at that time and you can accidently crash your vehicle
If you want to combat this sort of risk then there is an alternative
solution for you. You can ask the car hire company whether they have a
Shu Roo. Actually, Shu Roo is the name of a car, which is designed in
such a way that it emit a high frequency sound that is possible to heard
for 400 metres ahead of you and for 50 meters both sides of your
vehicle, which will alert every wildlife who arrives across your track.
Thus, you’ll be protected along with the Australian wildlife through
this technology. Don’t be afraid thinking that you’ve to bear a high
pitched sound in your ear as company during the 12 hours long journey to
Sydney from Melbourne because the high pitch that is released by Shu Roo
can only be heard by the ears of the animals but not through human’s
