1) The Mary Valley
Only two hours from Brisbane sits the must-do Mary Valley and Mary River system, perfect for any Queensland road trip itinerary. The Mary Valley is defined by the tourist railway between Monkland (Gympie) and Imbil, but its watershed is much more extensive. You can see Yabba Creek and explore the Sunshine Coast Food Trail. Enjoy the scenic drive, the Fig Tree Walk and rent a canoe or a kayak to travel downstream.
2) Bunya Mountains National Park
Perfect for camping and lush mountain views is the beautiful Bunya Mountains National Park, just west of the Sunshine Coast. Perfect for a 7 day road trip from Brisbane or, if you’re after a more leisurely getaway, a 2 week road trip from Brisbane. You can explore the town of Kingaroy and the surrounding mountain range. Perfect for 4×4 campervans and motorhome travel, this protected rainforest boasts stunning landscapes, lush greenery and secluded camping spots that will see you waking you up each morning with birdsong and the fresh scent of flora.
3) Atherton Tablelands
Sitting in far north Queensland within the Hasties Swamp National Park is the Atherton Tablelands. Near the town of Yungaburra, Atherton is a rural town west of Cairns. The Tablelands, known as the Village in the Rainforest, offers wildlife attractions including the Koala Gardens, Butterfly Sanctuary and beautiful rainforests. There are also stunning waterfalls to explore, as well as markets, quaint cafes and boutiques, so it’s well worth the 7 day road trip from Brisbane. You can even fit this treasure in with a 4 day road trip from Brisbane, depending on your motorhome and your travel plans.
