Shortest distance from Australian state capital cities to other cities

Shortest distance from Australian state capital cities to other cities

Travelling by car is the best way to see Australia. It’s even possible to reach Tasmania, Kangaroo Island and Philip Island by car, using the ferry. In Australia people drive on the left side of the road.

The maximum speed in cities and built up areas is usually 50 or 60 km/h. Once on the open road away from cities and towns the limit is generally 100 or 110 km/h. The maximum allowable speed is 110 km/h. Police use marked and unmarked cars as well as speed cameras to catch speeding motorists. Fines are large if caught.

When driving, especially at night, and particularly through forested areas you should be aware of kangaroos that can suddenly jump from the bushes on to the road. Always stay within the speed limit and stay alert. If on the open road in a high speed limit area you can put your headlights on high beam but only if there is no oncoming traffic. Please remember to turn off high beam as soon as another car can be seen approaching.

Australia is a very large country, the sixth biggest in the world by area, so
travelling distances in Australia can be very long. Nevertheless travel by road is very popular and Australia’s roads are generally well maintained.

Also a list of the quickest route between each capital city and the other main cities and towns in the applicable state.
