The 1000km long scenic drive takes you on an adventure through lush national parks, stunning beaches, rolling green hills of the hinterland, and small yet vibrant off the beaten track towns full of charisma and authentic Australian culture.

Brisbane, the beautiful capital of Queensland is full of natural wonders and activities suited perfectly for travelers looking for an adventure in a sunny and vibrant city. Park up your Travelers Autobarn campervan and enjoy the following activities that won’t make a dent in your budget!
1. Explore South Bank
South Bank is the vibrant area on the riverside right across from the Brisbane City centre. Walk along Little Stanley Street or take a dip in Streets Beach before enjoying some live music while overlooking the Brisbane skyscrapers behind a slowly fading sunset. Sounds like a lovely (and romantic) afternoon!
Australia…is there any better country out there for a roadtrip? Okay, some come very close however the best way to discover our beautiful country is by your own 4 wheels.
One of the most common mistakes many drivers do is to underestimate the challenges of a long road trip…especially if you hire a campervan or car. So here are a few tips from us…
Brisbane to Cairns – it doesn’t look too far on the map – but it is! It is 2000 KM and if you manage to do 800 KM in a day you are a real champion (HOWEVER – please don’t!) – anything less than 14 days is really not worth the effort! Darwin to Perth is a whooping 4500 km – you really should be taking 3 weeks for those KM! Sydney to Melbourne – 10 days are more than enough and will allow you to chill out plenty of times during your trip! Darwin to Cairns – 4000 KM – you better off getting the plane – there is not much to see in between and you better take a tour in Darwin to see Kakadu National Park and all the other parks.
