Planning a big lap? Part 4 – Augusta, WA to ACT

Take our final journey of our Aussie Big Lap! This section starts us from Augusta WA, where you watch two oceans meet from the top of Australia’s tallest lighthouse! The tour was excellent – you can see we’re almost blasted off with the wind! And we think you’ll be blown away by all our tips along Australia’s south – for shorter breaks or your own lap.
