We’re getting geared up to get back on the road again to see the rest of the east coast of Australia. Step one, buy a used car that will take us (hopefully!) all the way Cairns over the next 6 months.
We turn to the trusty gumtree.com.au, similar to craigslist.com but more popular here in Australia. With a major airport located in Sydney, it’s a great place to pick up a used car from other backpackers who are leaving the country after their travels. Many people are even selling the gear they have picked up along the way such as backpacks, camping gear, snorkeling gear etc. so there are lots of great package options available.
After a few test drives we decide on a 1994 Holden Commodore. It’s in great condition with low kilometer’s, and most importantly it is still registered until mid July which means we don’t have to worry about re-insuring a car while we are here. Just one more week to enjoy Sydney and then we are back on the road again!
