How to have an enjoyable family road trip with kids and teenagers
Family road trips are one of the best ways to get out of town and see the beauty of Australia. But it’s also the kind of adventure that can turn sour very quickly.
Times have changed since the parents of today were thrown in the back of a station wagon to play ‘I Spy’ – the only form of entertainment on the open road.
