Holiday reading for the Caribbean Holidays to Australia with Escape Worldwide - Great Barrier Reef QLD (copyright Tourism and Events Queensland) Holidays to Australia with Escape Worldwide - Magnetic Island QLD (copyright Townsville Enterprise Ltd)

This 1500 kilometre-long swathe of coastline from the Sunshine Coast to the Far North covers a diverse and fascinating area of Queensland, and is classic road-trip country - grab some wheels and head to the open roads of the Queensland Coast! From south to north you’ll pass through Hervey Bay & the Fraser Coast followed by the Capricorn Coast & the Southern Barrier Reef, as the miles slip by.


Next stop is the incredible Whitsunday Coast, home to spectacular beaches and incredible islands, and well worth a few days to explore. Then head in to Townsville & the Mission Beach coastline before arriving in to the heart of FNQ at Cairns. This journey with your own wheels is rewarding and fascinating, and the pace is up to you.
