Even as the country's heading into winter, it's always a good time to take a family trip out of town, and, if you have a 4WD sitting in the garage, finding an area in which you can do some off-road exploring is the perfect way to make the most of your vehicle and share a wonderful adventure with your family!

In this blog, we'll go over some of the best off-road getaway ideas that we recommend for a May family adventure, and let you know just how you can get your hands on the perfect vehicle for one of these trips.

Visit a national park

Many Australians don't even know that our beautiful national parks exist, let alone visit them regularly, but if you're looking for a holiday destination, there might not be a better choice! Our expansive national parks have off-road trails, beautiful scenery, and camping spots for those of us looking for an overnight adventure.

If you're in NSW, you could visit the rugged terrain of Blue Mountains National Park and its mix of steep cliffs, waterfalls, and eucalyptus forests, or drive up to the North Coast and try out the exhilarating off-road drives of Werrikimbe National Park, which is packed with steep and winding dirt trails that your 4WD - and kids - will love!

Queensland is also packed with national parks that families will love - the rainforests of the parks in the Gold Coast and Hinterland, and Conondale National Park in the Sunshine Coast, will all provide the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable family holiday.

Head to an island

If zooming down sandy beaches in your 4WD is your thing, heading to a huge sand island like Fraser Island in NSW or Bribie Island in Queensland is the place to go! With amazing sea views, forests, lakes, and - of course - a lot of sand, a holiday on a beach island presents a very unique opportunity for a getaway, with lots of potential fun for kids!
