End Your Road Trip in Brisbane

The stretch of coast and landscapes between Sydney and Brisbane is a wonderful treasure of wine regions, pristine coastlines, surf breaks, primordial rainforests, waterfalls and swimming holes, kangaroos, and great campsites.

Like the Sydney to Gold Coast drive, you visit iconic places - Byron Bay, rainbow coloured Nimbin, the glittering Gold Coast, natural treasure Myall Lakes and the Hunter Valley wine region  - with the addition of the city of Brisbane, collecting memories that will last a life time.

The journey of 925 km (10.5 hours of drive time) plus detours can be made in two weeks, but give yourself longer if you’d like to explore properly.
