Brisbane to Cairns Drive

2,180 km | 27 hr drive | 15+ days

The Brisbane to Cairns drive takes in the entire east coast of Queensland. It's a stretch of tropical paradise dotted with unspoiled islands and fringed by the Great Barrier Reef. Many of the regions are so beautiful they're World Heritage Listed. We've included 7 optional extra days that you should really take advantage of if you have the time and budget, but you'll need to book ahead for Hinchinbrook Island, Fraser Island and Lady Musgrave Island.
