East Coast Australia

With a coastline that stretches around 4,000km from Melbourne, Victoria in the south to Cairns, Queensland in the North, Australia’s East Coast has it all. It’s a popular route taken as a self-drive or multi-centre itinerary with superb locations including Sydney, Byron Bay, Surfer’s Paradise, Brisbane, Noosa and Fraser Island – and of course, the amazing book-ends of Melbourne and Cairns themselves. In this vast part of the world, you’ll discover golden beaches, rainforest, vineyards, cosmopolitan cities and an abundance of nature. Many will travel the East Coast in 2 weeks, though to explore it more extensively, and if you have the time, 4 weeks is a real must!
