Plan Your Trip with Confidence

Dozens of maps for every state and territory ensure you always know where you are, and where to go next.

State view. Regional views. Interurban views. Suburban views. Metro street views. Accurate, detailed maps are the key to good planning and an enjoyable trip. All of the maps in Australia Free have been prepared to exacting standards by professional cartographers, and set a new benchmark for clarity and detail for travel guidebooks.

Further, all of our maps and locations are meticulously cross-referenced with icons and location numbers, so you can see at a glance what FREE activities or FREE accommodation options are available in your vicinity or en route .

At-a-glance symbols tell you what you need to know, FAST

There’s nothing worse than turning up to a campsite at 5pm, tired and hungry, only to find that won’t accept Fido. Or that they don’t have hot water for that three-day shower you’ve been hoping for. Or that it’s not suitable for big rigs. Or any one of a dozen other variables.

We’ve solved that. Custom icons throughout Australia Free let you know, at-a-glance, all manner of information vital to the budget (or or not-so-budget) traveller.

 Mike’s personal recommendations. There’s nothing to compare with advice from someone who has actually been there before you. This is not a collection of hearsays and rumours: Mike has personally visited and documented each and every site and attraction cited.
