Solo trip - Qld, is it worth the trip to WA?

Jump to last reply

Hi! I'm traveling to Qld to visit family near Toowoomba in May. lived in Qld as a child and have been back a few times; (been to Sydney/Melbourne and not going back this trip) but never been to 'the other side'! It's my first solo trip (done it with my 6 kids/husband before, so this is very different!). Want to begin and end my trip in Qld, to spend time with my father, and thinking of 'hopping' over to WA for a new view of Aus. I have friends in Port Hedland. I'm interested in Aus history and particularly literature/arts. I'm in Aus for about a month (not booked yet!) and apart from the historical/Aboriginal interest I need a couple of 2-3 day stays with my Dad near Toowoomba and I'd like to fit in a day or so horse-riding, some rainforest walking, and a visit 'home' to FNQ. (Port Douglas/Mossman area). Help!! By the way, I'm a 54 year-old Grandmother :) x
