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.
