While nothing beats the convenience of flying from one destination to the next, there’s no denying that euphoric feeling of freedom when you hit the road. With no schedule to follow, it’s time to spark your spontaneity and embrace the unexpected.
Considering Queensland is seven times the size of Great Britain, and two and a half times the size of Texas, there’s more than enough road to go around. If you want to explore coastal havens, hinterland towns, and major cities along the east coast of Queensland, take your time on the Pacific Coast Way. Travelling from the Gold Coast up to Cairns, this 1784km drive will take you from coast to country to reef and beyond.
Or, how does a few days cruising the seam between two of the world’s most renowned heritage sites, sound? If you head further north on The Great Barrier Reef Drive from Cairns to Cape Tribulation, you’ll find the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics rainforest. Extend this 140km road trip into a week-long journey and make the most of each pitstop.
For those who want a taste of Outback life, set your GPS along the Matilda Way. Stretching from Cunnamulla on the New South Wales border up to Karumba in the Gulf of Carpentaria, you’ll meet friendly local characters, visit unique attractions and discover unspoiled natural sites along the way. If you’re chasing a different Queensland experience, one that is equal parts vast, unique, and stunning, this is the road trip.
Now that you’re feeling inspired to steer off the beaten track, explore local communities and see natural wonders – what are you waiting for? Roll down the windows, turn up the music and drive towards your next adventure.
