Love the long way

At Subaru we believe the long way is the best way. Because when we focus less on the destination, we give ourselves more time to discover, a greater chance to connect, and more opportunities to learn, laugh and grow together. So welcome to our Great Australian Detour content hub where you’ll find some great inspiration on where you can go with your family to experience the wonder of the natural beauty, unique attractions and amazing people across our glorious country.

All you need is a spirit of adventure, and a car with the capability and flexibility you need to getaway. Cue Subaru. With the sure-footed control and car-like handling of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the effortless power of the horizontally-opposed Boxer engine and the impeccable technology and class-leading safety credentials, it’s time to take the road less travelled.

Because remember, life’s not about getting from A to B, it’s the moments you share along the way.

Drives of Reminiscence and Discovery

In this episode of Subaru's Great Australian Detour, Host and Subaru Ambassador Andrew Daddo takes a nostalgic trip down memory lane, reflecting on the best drives across Australia in some of our favourite Subaru models. Starting with the exhilarating west coast of Tasmania in the BRZ Coupe S Manual, he embarks on an unforgettable adventure. Next, he conquers the iconic Great Ocean Road in the Outback. The breath-taking Alpine Way becomes Andrew’s playground as he unleashes the performance of the legendary WRX. Venturing to the Flinders Ranges, he tackles the terrain in none other than the Subaru Outback. Finally, he heads westward in the all-new Subaru Solterra, exploring new horizons.
