Discovering the "must sees" and hidden gems can be like finding the proverbial needle in a haystack.
We want to give you the good oil on the best places to see that aren't necessarily the big tourist attractions. We figure you will find those anyway, and let's face it, if you've seen one bridge, you've seen them all!
Sometimes, it's as much fun, or more, to discover something that not many other people have before you. There are not many places in the world where this can happen. Australia is one of them.
We have given you some suggested routes (and will be adding plenty more) and some of the very special places to see along the way, many of which won't appear in your traditional tourist information booklets.
We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed putting them together. Now go and explore like never before!
But like any road trip, the journey is more important than the destination! There are plenty of other great sights to see.
To put this drive in context, it is further to drive from Brisbane to Cairns than it is from Melbourne to Brisbane. While this is a long drive, it is one of the best trips you will ever embark upon.
