Queensland, known as the 'Sunshine State' is the perfect setting for the ultimate road trip. Its variety of landscapes mean that around each corner you are greeted with different sights and sounds, making for a stimulating and diverse holiday. A popular drive is to take your campervan hire Brisbane right up to Cairns in the North, a coastal trip which gives you the option of stopping in at various seaside towns along the way to break up your drive with some sun, surf and fun! The gorgeous Sunshine Coast, two hours north of Brisbane, is the first place that will entice you in for a stopover. The sunny beachside suburbs of Noosa and Maroochydore are nestled in amongst thick rainforest vegetation like perfect hideaways, but beware because you will probably never want to leave!
Four hours north of Brisbane lie the closely linked towns of Agnes Waters and the Town of 1770. Historically significant as Captain Cooks first landing place, the striking natural beauty of these cosy towns definitely makes it worthwhile stopping over in your budget camper. It is also your last opportunity to get a surf in, as the beach at Agnes is the most northerly beach with waves on the east coast. The locals here are friendly and welcoming, and there is a host of activities both water and land based to keep you entertained. The fishing is exceptional, so hire a boat and give your angling skills a test.
To experience a true Australian country city then call in at Rockhampton. Known as the 'beef capital of Australia', this is where the outback meets the reef and there are any number of things to do inland or on the coast here. For a true 'Rocky' experience then head into the centre of town and witness a thrilling bullride! When you strike out for Cairns again, make a point of stopping in at Mackay, a tropical wonderland of rainforest covered national parks and broad beaches. Base here for a couple of days and hire a boat and explore beautiful Brampton Island and its amazing world of colour lying under the waters surface.
Your final destination of Cairns is a tourist haven, and caters to all types of holiday makers - from those on a budget to those wanting a luxurious break.
