In this leg of the road trip, Adam and crew head to Gloucester and try something new.
Riding the rapids
In Gloucester, Adam rides the rapids of an iconic Australian river, and happens upon the most awesome Aussie backyard complete with sheep and a goal post.
Give in to your thrill-seeking side
Regional travel is also the perfect opportunity to give in to try something new. Which is exactly what Adam and crew did in Gloucester.
Only a 3-hour drive from Sydney, the gorgeous town of Gloucester is the perfect mix of nature and adventure, great for bushwalking, camping and river adventures.
Barrington Outdoor Adventure Centre offers canoeing, kayaking, abseiling and mountain bike adventures — perfect if you’ve got energy to burn and looking for something active to do on your road trip.
