Sydney, with its stunning harbour, complete with a backdrop of the Opera House and bridge, makes the perfect place to start, for any first time visitor to Australia. Just a couple of hours drive outside the city, you can explore the Blue Mountains, or take a trip to the Hunter Valley for a spot of Wine tasting.
Head up the stunning New South Wales coastline, passing through Port Stephens, which has a natural bay twice the size of Sydney Harbour, before reaching Port Macquarie, the half-way point to Brisbane and one of the state's oldest towns.
As you head to the Queensland border, a stop in Byron Bay is recommended, the most easterly point in Australia. Be sure to stop at the Gold Coast too, home to glorious beaches and a thriving surf culture, soak up the sun and enjoy the unique atmosphere, before reaching Brisbane. A city full of character, be sure to take a stroll along the popular South Bank, home to an array of cafes, restaurants and boutiques.
