You’ve just booked your rental car from Cairns. The first leg of your road trip down the East Coast of Australia is beginning. However, do you know the hottest spots to check out before reaching Brisbane?
You might have heard of Bundaberg rum. Or maybe Bundaberg’s Lemon Lime and Bitters, Ginger beer or other craft-brewed drinks. If not, suffice it to say you won’t lack something to quench your thirst in this town.
However, your favourite drink isn’t the only reason to visit this town. From November until the end of March, heading out to the Mon Repos Turtle Rookery is a must. Can anyone really pass up seeing baby turtles hatching?
Airlie Beach When we talk about the hottest places to go, we can’t miss out listing one of the best places for working on your tan along the East Coast of Australia. Airlie Beach’s man-made lagoon is the ideal location for lazing in the sun or enjoying a dip. They even have barbecues set up for free use, so don’t forget to grab some sausages from a local supermarket! If you need a break from relaxing by the water, drive to Conway National Park to get some exercise. Check out the birds that make this location their home, and don’t step in any termite mounds!Jan 3, 2019 at 11:00am PST
