The regions have been challenged like never before. Through drought, bushfires, floods and a pandemic - now is our time to give back and show up for local businesses. Australians yearn for renewal and road trips hold the key to recovery. On the road, we reconnect with family and friends, discover hidden gems and help others. So pick a town, call your mates, pack the car and celebrate #whyweroadtrip.
