The Sydney to Cairns Drive

3,500 km | 37 hr drive | 30+ days

By the time you add in all the stops, the Sydney to Cairns Drive (or Cairns to Sydney Drive) is 3,500 km. That 's further than Edinburgh to Istanbul (2,280 km) or New York City to Los Angeles (2,780 km). But there's a lot to see along the way. Some of the places are so beautiful and unique they have been World Heritage Listed. 

Daily drive times average around 3 hours per day. We have suggested places where you might wish to spend more time. If you do all of these you'll add 10 or more days to your itinerary as well as memories that will last a lifetime
