Holiday Tip - Road Safety
If you are planning on a self-drive holiday, here are a few tips about driving in Australia:
- In Australia, all vehicles travel on the left side of the road.
- This may be different to the side on which you normally drive.
- Ask passengers to periodically remind you to drive on the left side of the road.
- Take care on the road between Cairns and Port Douglas.
- While this is a very scenic trip, it is at times a narrow, winding road.
- Along the way there are places to safely pull off the road and safely take in the pictureque views of the tropical coast and the Coral Sea.
- If you wish to drive in Australia you must hold a current, valid driving licence issued in the country in which you live. Carry it with you at all times when driving.
- All occupants of a vehicle must wear seatbelts at all times, as required by Australian laws.
- Always travel no faster than the signed maximum speed limit.
- Avoid drinking alcohol before driving. Australia has strict laws on 'drink-driving' and police actively enforce them.
- When planning a long drive have a good night's sleep before the trip, share the driving with your companions and stop for a rest at least every two hours.
- The driver of the vehicle is not permitted to use a hand-held mobile telephone whilst driving in Australia.
- In country areas road conditions can vary from bitumen surfaces to gravel and dirt. Be careful of potholes, soft road edges, narrow bridges and dusty roads.
- Be careful of crossing over a road covered in water - cross slowly only if the road surface is firm, and stay in the middle of the road.
- Allow plenty of room before you overtake road trains (large vehicles that can be more than the length of 10 cars!) and be prepared for them to sway a little as you overtake. Also be prepared for the 'windrush' when passing as it can pull you towards the road train.
- Do not hitchhike or pick up hitchhikers.
