Road Travel Distances

Allow 1 hour for every 100 km of travel on Australia's major highways. Increase this by 20% when calculating travel times on lesser roads which travel through regional centres and small towns. Breaks of up to 30 minutes should be added every two to three hours to counter driver fatigue. The best way to prevent driver fatigue is to make sure you have enough sleep before driving, regardless of the length of your trip. Rest areas are places where you can park safely, get out of your car and refresh yourself before continuing on your journey. They are available 24 hours a day all year round and are clearly signposted. Service centres, petrol stations, parks and country towns are other places you can stop and take a break from driving.
