How many places are there in Australia, that everyone can go on holiday and enjoy? Well south East Queensland is a great start. From the fast paced lifestyle of the Gold Coast, with theme parks, nightlife, surfing and shopping, the Gold Coast is a great option for people looking for "Buzz" in their holiday experience.
Just up the road, only 45 minutes away is the growing city of Brisbane. Brisbane is a culmination of modern architecture and ancient sandstone buildings and over the years has developed a cosmopolitan atmosphere, with its bustling cafes, an extensive cultural calendar and idyllic riverside walks.
There are not too many capital cities in the world that have over 350 islands on the doorstep. Brisbane does. Most are only small rocky outcrops, but some, like Stadbroke Island, Moreton Island, St Helena Island & Bribie Island offer visitors quick access to a relaxing day on "The Islands". The Brisbane Islands may be only a short distance away from the city of Brisbane, but visitors feel they are worlds away from the city hustle and bustle when on a Brisbane Island escape.
"What a great place for a weekend away from Brisbane" These are the words expressed by many after visiting the colourful and relaxing regions of the Brisbane Hinterland area. The Brisbane Hinterland is a great region to spend a weekend or week away from the city, and takes in many diverse landscapes, from rural farmlands to natural bush and even ancient rainforests. There is a wonderful range of accommodations, from farmstays, to motels and camping, and the kids will love all the unique animals of the forest or at one of the marvelous habitats like the Walkabout Wildlife Centre in the Brisbane Forest National Park.
The Sunshine Coast is a fantastic destination for all ages. Relaxing beaches and waterways offering a range of activities from Surfing, fishing, sailing, stand up paddleboarding, deep sea fishing, diving and four wheel driving through to wonderful tourist drives, bush walking, camping, shopping and exciting night life escapades.
Another great option to take in a lot of this region is via a gool old fashioned "road trip" . If you like to pack as much into your road trip as possible, you would be hard pressed to find a more rewarding and memorable "Road-venture", than a holiday along the Sunshine Way - Byron Bay NSW - Hervey Bay QLD.
The Sunshine Way road tour holiday is suitable journey for all ages. You can do this trip in your normal car, motorhome or camper, but if you want some excellent "off road" adventure, we recommend you bring or hire a 4WD to reach some of the beautiful beach locations that are accessible by 4WD. Due to the ideal temperatures of the the Sunshine Way regions, this is a holiday that can be comfortably enjoyed most any month of the year. To fully appreciate this wonderful road journey the Sunshine Way, we recommend a minimum of 10 days, but you could easily spend a month and still have missed some highlights.
As you can see, the South East region of Queensland is packed with experiences for everyone of all ages to enjoy. And i reccommend it every chance i get. Because it a unique place no-one can ever tire of.
