Our six-week adventure on Australia's eastern coast from late March to early May (austral autumn), introduced us to an amazing variety of nature reserves and parks, towns with distinct personalities, and stunning coastal areas. Eastern Australia has it all: pristine, deserted beaches, lush forests with myriad trees and plants, scores of national parks, more birds than you can count, and very friendly people who speak a unique and highly entertaining form of English. (And of course we can't forget the 'roos.) The roads are mostly excellent, the urban areas very tidy, and there's a broad range of accommodations. We rented a car in Sydney for four weeks of touring through New South Wales and a bit of Victoria. Then we flew from Brisbane to Townsville in Queensland, took a three-day scuba-dive trip on the outer Great Barrier Reef, and finished up with two weeks in tropical Northern Queensland. We stayed in comfortable self-contained cottages and trailer parks. In total we drove about 3400 miles, and bush-walked over 150 miles.
We hope these pages will give you a flavor of the highlights of our trip. It was a winner! G'day, and no worries, mate!
