We started the new year with an exciting trip along the Australian East Coast. A 3,000 km road trip from Cairns, where we spent the Christmas holidays, to Melbourne, our new home for the next few months.

We camped in a tent along the way, which was not without its challenges in the Queensland heat, not to mention the mosquitos and other wildlife friends.

This is the first part of our journey, along the coast of Queensland, from Cairns to Brisbane, which is about 2,000 km. Having done this drive before, we didn’t stay too long in Queensland, so we could spend more time exploring New South Wales.

Itinerary:

We stayed two full days in Brisbane, where we had more packing to do, my car to pickup, and some friends to catch up with, before we said our final goodbyes to this beautiful city.

This is our full itinerary:
