Longest Roads in Australia

Longest Roads in Australia

Australia is a huge country, so it is common to travel long distances with epic, but long roads. With the population centres separated by vast distances, some roads are so long that they have trivia signs to keep drivers alert and reduce crashes and fatalities.
