What’s not to love about a roadtrip that hugs a totally natural wonder of the world - the Great Barrier Reef? There’s no shortage of jumping-off points along the Big Pacific Coast Touring Route to make sure you cover as much of this tropical, sea-life paradise as possible. And back on the mainland, there’s a bunch of kitschy Big Things this stretch of road is known for like the Big Mango in Bowen or the Giant Gumboot in Australia’s wettest town of Tully. There’s also ridiculously gorgeous rainforests, gold-rush towns stuck in a time-warp and the most bodacious selection of seafood to sample on your way as you travel across two states, from Sydney in New South Wales to Cairns in far north Queensland.

And if you can, a short ferry ride off the coast of Queensland will take you to one of the best beaches on the planet, Whitehaven, in The Whitsundays.
