Massive rainforests, natural beaches, the dirt of the outback, Queensland has enough and more to make for an epic road trip
Queensland, the second-largest and third-most-populous state in Australia, has more 1.7 million square kilometres to uncover, so whatever the route you take, you’re heading in one direction—awesomeness.
Journey as far north as Cape York in Tropical North Queensland or trek alongside the New South Wales border via the Adventure Way, Queensland is best enjoyed at your own pace.
Here’s a quick purview of four road trips you can choose from
- Pacific Coast Way: Reef-rimmed beaches, fertile farmlands and a plethora of laid-back towns on this route from the Gold Coast to Cairns.
- Great Beach Drive: This trip connects the Sunshine Coast with the World Heritage-listed Fraser Island.
- Great Tropical Drive: The Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics rainforest are the major pit-stops for those who choose this path.
- Savannah Way: If you love the outbacks, this is the road to travel with its rugged landscapes, gorges and waterfalls, historic towns and cattle stations.
