Road trip and ride share in groupsRide sharing and road tripping together are very popular for travelers and backpackers in Australia.
The classic tour segments that you will find it easy to team up with other travelers include:
- Cairns to Brisbane
- Brisbane to Sydney
- Great Ocean Road from Melbourne
- West coast from Perth to Darwin
The organisers of these trips, car owners, travelers will advertise on Gumtree, Facebook groups, in Hostels and on traveler web sites like CouchSurfing.org
Gumtree is the major low cost advertising web site in Australia. Similar to USA's craigslist.
You should ensure you have the best travel partners for departing and make sure you are going to enjoy their company. You should also make sure that the exact cost or share method is discussed in detail. Stories are very common about people getting into fights or arguments about money.
