Brisbane to Cape Tribulation Road Trip

About the Roadtrip

The A1 along the coast of Queensland brings drivers to island adventures, endless forests, and unique ways to experience nature. From live performances in the bowls of the earth to feeding wallabies on the beach to dining in the heart of the rainforest, a trip along this stretch of highway will be filled with unforgettable moments. Plan for just a few days or spend up to two weeks experiencing some of the larger attractions like the Whitsunday Islands to really get a feel for all that Queensland has to offer.
