Australia says hi. 110km/h is the posted speed for most major highways here. The Hume highway between Sydney and Melbourne has all towns bypassed, so you could easily do 600km in a bit under 5.5 hours.

In my experience a few years back, Australia also has a zero tolerance for speeding. This means that everyone drives at 108 kmh and slows down when there's merging. I found it surprisingly slow to make progress when driving up the Queensland coast on the M1/A1. It may be better when you're crossing the Outback, because then you're just flirting with death instead.

Australians have a very conflicted relationship with cars.

Noted Canadian scholars Bob and Doug McKenzie once taught me how to roughly convert temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit: Double it and add 30. 
 

Five degrees, forty. 
 

It's not foolproof, but neither are they.

Fun fact:

The McKenzie brothers came about because there were less commercials during the airing of the show in Canada than in the USA, resulting in some time left over.

The network asked SCTV to come up with some content that was "Uniquely Canadian" to fill the space.

600 kilometers is 6 hours away.  How long is 450 miles?

Trick question!  You're are obviously rounding 600km to 450 miles and want the same answer, but the truth is no country with speed limits and distances measured in km will you be able to do that distance in 6 hours.  It's easy to do 450miles in six hours in this country, I've done it many many time.  But you can't do it anywhere else legally or even illegally but safely.  Before you mention Germany and Autobahns, nope not possible.  More and more of Germany has speed limits on autobahns and the areas that don't aren't 600km apart and that's not taking into account traffic, which will never alow you to do those speeds for long enough!

Joking aside in all seriousbness I have a rule of thumb in main land Europe that it takes the same time to travel X km there as it does to travel X miles here.  Places are further apart, population density is magnitudes less and so freeways tend to be more direct so average speeds between points are much higher here.  

And that's todays lesson from a shiny happy person pedant.   I should buy myself the following.

I'm putting this to the test wink

I've got a trip to Germany coming up soon and I'm pretty sure I can make this happen.  Speed limits here are 130kph, and the cameras don't go off until 150kph...

now, 150 isnt really sustainable as you get people who clog the left lane but I think I can do this devil
