Take a great drive in NSW this school holidays


Looking for a picturesque and entertaining drive to keep the family entertained these school holidays?

Using Sydney as a base, here are the routes we took during Season 1 of Drive TV.

Episode 1 – The Armidale-Kempsey Road

In Episode 1, Trent took the Land Rover Defender on the scenic route between Armidale and Kempsey in northern New South Wales.

As historic as it is beautiful, the road needs you to ignore the satellite navigation and just head out for the drive!


Episode 4 – Colo Back Roads


In Episode 4, Sam took the back roads out of Colo, and made his way to the Off-Road-Rush racing facility to put the Ford Ranger Raptor X to the test.

There’s plenty to see on a mixture of paved and unpaved roads, that lets you get any four-wheel-drive properly dirty!


Episode 8 – Capertee Valley

The drive took in some spectacular views as well as the abandoned Glen Davis Shale Oil Mine. A must-visit spot if ever there was one!
