Travel options from Townsville

Jump to last reply

Hi all. I will be in the Townsville area with a group of undergraduate students for 4 weeks ( I'm a grad student). I am interested in staying another week or two and would like to travel to Sydney by car.

Is it safe for a female to travel that far solo? I'm independent and usually don't ask this question but I didn't want to assume.

Is this plan doable? I'm debating whether to cover a lot of land or spend a lot of time in one place... I could fly to Sydney instead but I kinda want to travel the coast. The only other issue I have is money. Any ideas on low cost places to stay?

This trip will be June 14-26ish.

Thanks!
