Take a drive down Route 39...

Jump in your car, get the tunes pumping and get ready to take on one of Australia's most iconic road trips. Stretching from Goondiwindi in the North down to Shepparton in Victoria, the Newell Highway is Australia's premier route offering a mix of quirky unique towns and thriving regional cities - all with a dose of friendly country charm thrown in.

Trail through endless wheat plains and flowering canola crops to discover the real Australia, where spectacular natural beauty abounds, food and wine is foraged direct from the region you're in and attractions come with a side of fascinating history.

See the wild in the wild at Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo, follow the foot steps of famous bushranger Ben Kelly at Forbes, trek through rugged natural wilderness in the Warrumbungles and explore the sophisticated piece of scientific equipment that was the star of the hit movie 'The Dish' at Parkes.
