The main reason for the development of DriverAbroad.com was the lack of a single resource providing all the driving advice and information you’ll need to plan a self drive trip Abroad.Although I try and keep the information in the site updated as much as possible, in a rapidly moving world, situations can change daily. Therefore please use the site as an approximate guide, and in conjunction with other resources in order to form your view on driving conditions, roads, safety etc.
The pages below provide driving and car rental info on all the countries within the Oceania/Australasia region.
Driving in Oceania obviously covers the extremes from the excellent infrastructure of urban Australia and New Zealand, to the tiniest island nations on the planet. Therefore expect variations in road and driving standards that its unlikely you’ll find in any other continent.
In general, driving styles in Oceania/Australasia tend to be laid back compared with Europe,Asia and Africa, though the extreme geography of many regions can be a challenge. Australia and New Zealand are also popular destinations for longer duration roadtrips, often using a campervan to get around. Campervan rental is therefore covered in both countries pages, and Australia by Campervan is also covered in ‘Classic Road Trips’.
