28 days to campervan around australia

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

First blog and first trip to Australia :)

Me and my partner (23 and 24 years old) have hired a campervan (car with a bed and kitchen - nothing too fancy!) and although I have read up about each place there is just too many things to choose from so I am hoping you can tell me some of the best (not just touristy) places to go.

We are also wanting to do the Fraser Island tour and the Whitsunday - Whitehaven Island with Great Barrier Reef tour - I would like advise on whether you think different Islands are better to visit.

The itinerary so far is:
- Land in Melbourne - 27th December
- Drive from Melbourne - Apolo Bay - Port Cambell 28th - 29th December
- Port Cambell - Geelong - 29th - 30th December
- Geelong - Wagga Wagga - 30th - 31st December
- Wagga Wagga - Sydney - 31st December
- Sydney - 31st - 3rd January

So we only have 2 days really for the GOR :( and then travel to Syndey for NYE

Then we are left with 16 days to see sites travelling up the East Coast to Cairns where we fly back to Melbourne on 20th January.

I know this isn't a lot of time but I think we need to try and cover:
Gold Coast - Hinterland
Brisbane
Sunshine Coast
Hervey Bay (Fraser Island)
Airlie Beach (Whitsundays)
Atherton Tablelands
Port Douglas

I realise we may not be ale to do all this but if you could advise on each any way it would really be appreciated so we can choose more wisely :)

From other blogs I read that gold cost is better than Sunshine, Bryon Bay isnt great and neither is Cape Tribulation, but please comment if you think differently to this!

Then our final 4 days are in Melbourne before we have to go back to the UK :(

We have hotel accommodation booked for Sydney and Melbourne but please recommend any other campsites for any other locations.

Thanks to any one who helps :)
