Despite plane flights getting cheaper and more popular than ever, when we set off on holidays, Australians overwhelmingly want to jump in a car.
Figures from Tourism Australia (note: PDF link) suggest that while air travel went up by 17% in 2008, we're still more than three times as likely to use our own car than a plane when we head off on holidays. (Surprisingly, rail and coach are both more popular than hire cars for Aussie tourist.)
Obviously, there are large stretches of Australia which simply can't be reached without a vehicle. However, as someone who doesn't drive and spends lots of time on planes, I'd be interested in the broader perspective from Lifehacker readers. What's your favoured method of transport for Australian holidays, and why? Park your insights in the comments.
