I am looking at traveling from Perth over to Gold Coast, going along the south coast. I will be stopping off and working and staying in various places along the way. I was wondering if I will be able to drive while I am out their on my UK license? Also, if anyone has any ideas on the best way to do my trip it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

You need an international drivers license to drive in Oz if you don't hold an Australian/New Zealand license

Probably the site I would trust the most to get one from.

Not sure if this post would be of use to you

Quoting CliodhnaD

You need an international drivers license to drive in Oz if you don't hold an Australian/New Zealand license

This is not true. As long as your license is in English, you can drive without an "international driving permit" (note the name; this is as opposed to an "international drivers license" which is a scam). Besides planty's link, also see (for example) vicroads, the agency dealing with this in Victoria.
