Drove my up for 28 hours straight from Melbourne, 2300km later we've finally reached Aryes Rock in NT.

Journey was very comfortable, speed averaged between 100-110kph, 3 people in the car and lots of luggage, 20L water and 20L reserve petrol. Averaged 5.3L/100km. Reserve petrol came in handy when the light came on telling me I had 50km left and the nearest petrol station was like 130km away!!!

Have a good day guys :)

That's very impressive, a place I would love to go. A bit of a trek from England though. Presumably you made it to the petrol station? It must have been pretty nerve wracking though. Any pictures?

Ah, the joys of outback driving! I may be taking mine to Victor Harbour in SA soon. I've a bet on with my mate that I can do it on one tank.....

What an awesome journey! I'm amazed that a crew of three and the required luggage could fit inside comfortably. I want to do aMelbournetoSydneyroad trip. Back roads only with no major highways allowed!

Very Jealous, I would absolutely love to do that. I have always wanted to drive over the Nullarbor plain. Maybe one day.....

Welcome, love Australia, was there in 2007. Got engaged in Sydney, we went to Ayers Rock, walked round it, did the dinner under the stars. Loved the people, great attitude.

Glad you're loving your up.
