The Search For This Summer’s Official Australian Ultimate Road Trip – Top 12 revealed!

Nextbase, the world’s leading Dash Cam manufacturers, are asking the Australian public where they will be road tripping this year – and win prizes by sharing their plans!

The world’s leading Dash Cam manufacturer Nextbase has announced they are seeking to find what will be Australia’s most popular road trip for summer 2022/23. With international travel proving expensive and traversing airports a nightmare, Australians are expected to pack the car and see the beauty of Australia this summer. Twelve iconic road trips have been shortlisted, including the Grand Pacific Drive in New South Wales and heading to Cape York in Queensland.

Full shortlist for The Ultimate Australian 2022/23 Summer Road Trip:

  1. Grand Pacific Drive, NSW

  2. Lismore Loop, NSW

  3. Great Ocean Road, VIC

  4. Great Alpine Road, VIC

  5. Tasmanian Ring Road, TAS

  6. Darwin to Katherine, NT

  7. Kangaroo Island, SA

  8. Adelaide to Coober Pedy, SA

  9. Cairns to Cape York, QLD

  10. Great Green Way, QLD

  11. Margaret River Coastline, WA

  12. Perth to Ningaloo, WA

After discovering last summer the Great Ocean Road is Australia’s favourite road trip, Nextbase is searching for what will be the most popular road trip to take this summer.

Nextbase Ambassador and Supercar driver David Reynolds said that the competition was set up to celebrate the great Australian road trip, coinciding with the looming summer and the opportunity to jump in the car with friends or family and get away for a holiday.

“After another hectic year it’s great to hear what people’s plans are for the summer. We are lucky to have such a beautiful country that has so many options for road trips – I know I’ll be going on one with my family. It’s also a fantastic idea to have a Dash Cam in the car with you, to keep you safe and insured should anything happen. The prizes for this competition are fantastic for your next road trip, so be sure to vote!” David Reynolds said.

All you need to do to enter is jump online and vote for the Ultimate Australian 2022/23 Summer Road Trip With Nextbase Dash Cams by picking your chosen road trip destination of the year. Entering takes two minutes, and you automatically go in the draw to win one of five Nextbase Dash Cams’ Summer Road Trip prize packs, valued at over $1,500 by explaining in 25 words or less why you deserve to win. Each prize pack features a Nextbase 622GW prize pack, $500 fuel voucher, and a $500 Airbnb voucher.

While the competition is designed to engage with the Australian people to get excited for summer adventure, there is a serious element to it too. In 2021, one in ten Australian drivers were in a car accident, and 56 percent reported concern with driving under changing conditions. 25 percent of Aussie drivers have also admitted that they change their driving behaviour if they believe that they are being recorded behind the wheel, while 80 percent have experienced road rage whilst behind the wheel.

Nextbase’s Head of Territory for Australia & New Zealand, Ben Sinica said: “You give yourself a critical layer of protection in the case of an incident by having a Dash Cam. From having the ability to use recorded footage as part of an insurance claim or criminal investigation, to benefiting from Nextbase’s world-first Emergency SOS feature which alerts authorities to your location if you have a serious accident, there’s absolutely no doubt that Aussies hitting the road this summer are safer if driving with a Dash Cam installed; leaving their loved ones with greater peace of mind in the process.”

Nextbase Dash Cams are the very best you can buy, with models ranging in price from just $99 to the globally multi-award winning premium 622GW 4K model, at $549.99. Nextbase’s 622GW model feature’s Nextbase’s world first Emergency SOS system, using what3words location system to alert authorities to your location, ability to record 4K quality video, digital image stabilisation which cancels out vibrations from the vehicle and bumpy roads and integrated Alexa voice control.

Nextbase Dash Cams are available from leading retailers including Repco, The Good Guys, Officeworks, Bing Lee, Harvey Norman, Ted’s Cameras and Camera House.
