16 Day Queensland Pacific Coast Self Drive
Prices From £1949
prices are per person based on twin share, including flights


On this ultimate Queensland self drive you will discover all the coastal highlights the state has to offer. Your journey starts with two nights in the capital, Brisbane. This cosmopolitan city has lots to offer from the spectacular South Bank, trendy bars and restaurants as well as the famous Australia Zoo. Depart the city and drive north up the Sunshine Coast to spend two nights in Rainbow Beach. This idyllic beach getaway is a great place to truly relax but also has plenty of activities to offer. Why not hop on the ferry and spend the day on Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world. Continue on to Hervey Bay to spend a further two nights. This relaxed coastal town is one of the best places in Australia to see humpback whales so be sure to join a whale watching cruise if you’re travelling from July-November. The drive between Hervey Bay and Airlie Beach is a long one so we’ve thrown in an overnight stop in Yeppoon on the Central Queensland Coast. Meander down Yeppoon’s main street or stroll the esplanade to browse beach-chic boutiques and surf stores. On your drive up to Airlie Beach we recommend stopping in Cape Hillsborough, the place to capture the iconic Australian photo of wallabies and kangaroos bounding up and down the beach. You have two nights in Airlie Beach to get yourself acquainted with the Whitsundays. The choice of activities is endless, why not take a sailing trip to Whitehaven Beach, a scenic flight over Heart Reef or spend the day snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef – or do it all! Mission beach is the next stop on your drive; spend two nights here where rainforest meets the reef, there is plenty to do for all ages. As you carry on up to the tropical north you will travel through Cairns and onto the relaxed coastal town of Port Douglas. This is one of the best places to get out onto the Great Barrier Reef and you’ll have two days here to properly explore. Your trip finishes with a two night stay in Cape Tribulation, the world’s oldest rainforest. Car hire will be included throughout the duration of your itinerary.
