AUSTRALIA is a popular adventure travel destination. The country is bigger than the USA and much larger than Europe, yet has a relatively small population.
The East Coast Journey starts in northern Queensland. The region from Cape Tribulation south to the Daintree River is famed for its superb scenery. It’s an incredibly beautiful stretch of coastline and one of the few places in Australia where the rainforest meets the beach. After taking the Skyrail gondola cable car from Cairns to Kuranda, there is time to explore the Atherton Tableland before journeying back down to the coast. A sailing trip out to Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island, a flight out for a few days on Lady Elliot Island (a small coral cay in the southern part of the Great Barrier Reef) and a visit to Fraser Island are just some of the fantastic things to do on a journey down the coast of Queensland. Brisbane is Australia’s third largest city. Warm to hot summers and pleasantly mild winters make Brisbane a year-round destination. Just before crossing over into New South Wales, there is tranquil Lamington National Park, where most of the vegetation is sub-tropical rainforest. Next there is Byron Bay, a small seaside resort famous for its surf beaches. The East Coast Journey comes to end in Sydney, one of the world’s greatest and most vibrant cities.
