Queensland driving tips
The most important thing to remember for visitors to Australia is that you will drive on the left! If this is not what you are used to, take some time to acclimate on the slower suburban roads near Townsville Airport.
All distances are in kilometres, and speed limits in kilometres per hour. Seat belts are mandatory for all passengers. The blood alcohol limit is very small, at 0.05%- we recommend avoiding alcohol altogether before driving.
Driving in the outback comes with its own guidelines. There are many miles of uninterrupted, straight highways containing nothing more than the odd road train, so it is necessary to stay alert and take breaks. It is also a good idea to be stocked up with water, food and even extra petrol, as towns and service stations can be few and far between. Make sure you have a cellphone in case of breakdown or emergency.
