Road trip: Sydney to Cairns Road Trip Itinerary

The drive from Sydney in New South Wales to Cairns in Queensland is no mean feat. This 2,400km trip is one to do when you have a couple of weeks free and takes you on an a great east coast adventure through rainforests, national parks and traditional Aussie beach towns. We recommend hiring a campervan from Sydney for about 21 – 28 days to really make the most of this trip.

Here’s a run down of the top destinations on the way, the best places to stop and great things to see and do.
