Gold Coast to Mackay

Post by mitgalant » Thu, 06 May 2010 3:46 pm

Hi people.

i will be visitin Australia during June.

I will be drivin from Gold Coast to Mackay from 10 June to 12 June morning.

My connecting flight will be from Mackay to Cairns.

Along the way from Gold Coast to Mackay, I will pass by Sunshine Coast, Bundaberg, Rockhampton and Mackay.

Is there any attractions on the road if i plan to stop over a night either at Bundaberg or Rockhampton?

How long will i reached Mackay from Gold Coast? Is 2 days enough to cover all places?

And lastly, i will be spendin 2 days in Cairns from 12 June in the evening to 14 June in the evenin.

Where is recommended for me to stay in Cairns and Port Douglas?

thanks for the help! 8-)

hmmm Bundaberg is a dump (no offense to anyone that lives there). Sunshine coast worth a stop over definitely. But otherewise i would spend more time in cairns/port douglas. In fact if your going to port douglas, i would spend no more than 1 night in cairns. Plenty of accomo in port douglas and the few times i went, i've stayed in a Service Apartment which i recommend. Good golf courses there as well.

As to what to do, just chill and enjoy qld. Its a tropical holiday so sight seeing is not the primary agenda, however definitely do a reef trip and definitely do a scuba dive.

enjoy and take plenty of photes!
