There’s nothing better than three whole days off work, heading off into the horizon with good friends and family for some good times. The team at GCFO have plenty of tips to help you celebrate the Queen’s birthday long weekend – even though Her Majesty’s actual birthday is in April!
Before you hit the road [Jack]
First up, make sure your car is roadworthy. Get it serviced, get those tyres checked and generally make sure it’s in good working order. Clean out the interior and give the outside a wash too. Don’t forget the GPS and it’s also a good idea to keep a budget in mind for petrol and road tolls.
Making That Playlist
The second item that is essential for any road trip – decent music! Will everyone in the car have the same taste in tunes? Probably not. But get everyone to make their own playlist and take turns listening in and turning it up. Who knows? You might discover a whole new sound.
Fill Up the Tank
Thirdly – and some would say this is the most vital ingredient – snacks. Here at GCFO, we know just how important it is to have tasty snacks on hand. We stock a wide range of lollies and chocolates for the sweet tooths, as well as chips and crackers for the savoury lovers. The team all have their favourite treats, so let us help you choose what to munch on as the kilometres roll on by. Muesli bars and dried fruit make for some healthier options and don’t forget to have plenty of water with you. Whatever tickles your taste buds, we stock it at GCFO.
As a nation of road-trippers, all Australians should know by now that safety is of the utmost importance. That means we need to stick to the speed limit, share the driving and make regular stops. Don’t drive tired or hungry, stop in at GCFO and stock up on all the snacks and treats you need for the trip. Stopping every two hours is also a great way to see all the little towns along the way. After all, a road trip is about the journey itself, not the destination and by taking a break in small towns, you’re bound to uncover some hidden gems. Chat with the locals and pop into the tourist information centre. You’ll be amazed at the amount of things to see and do in rural and regional Australia.
