    1. Yes! We set off at 6am most days, so we could get to our destination and chill or explore for the afternoon. Made the most of some amazing locations, like Byron Bay.

  1. You will need to keep travelling or come again, the south coast is delightful, much less developed than the north. With amazing beaches even if the water is cold.

    1. Yes! So much more to see. I spent some time in Melbourne and Adelaide and got to see some of the south coast but not as much as I would have liked. I know I only saw a tiny snapshot of Australia so can’t wait to return! πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve heard about this deal before! I’m going to Australia for 1 year and will be travelling round for 6 months. My plan was to buy a camper van with my boyfriend and travel round. Hopefully it’ll go to plan! Great post!

  3. I love this post! I guess most people would probably say you should spend a lot more time on this kind of journey, but your 6-day challenge sounds like such an amazing adventure! I love a good road trip, especially if the road is the actual highlight of the trip πŸ™‚ Sorry though that you had to miss snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef – I’m sure that would be awesome too!

  4. Wow, that’s quite the distance for such a short amount of time! I did Brisbane to Airlie in 6 days earlier this year, and that was still a bit of a stretch, so I’m really impressed how much you managed to do!

    1. Yes it was a long way to drive and I will definitely return to do the east coast over a longer period of time in the future but it was such a great experience and we have so many memories!

  5. I have always wanted to do one of those $/day campervan drives, but I’m not 25 yet 😦
    Glad you got to see so much of my beautiful country, every roadtrip is different and looks like this was a great one!

  6. Wow this looks like such an amazing road trip! Those beaches and views are beautiful. Definitely adding this to the bucket list!

  7. Awesome! How I wish I had moved there in my 20s as I had wanted to but its a bit too late now for one reason or another. But I can dream by means of your blogs, I love reading about your adventures. Got any more escapades to tell?

  8. Sounds amazing. I can’t wait to get to Australia in 2 weeks and see what the country has to offer. I’ll stay there for a year, and I’m so excited I can’t even put it into words :o)

      1. I got my plain ticket to Melbourne. Dats it :o) I’ve been a creature of habit for my whole life, so I figure it would be a good idea to see how I deal with absolutely no plan or known habits in a foreign country all alone. Please pray for me hahahhaha

          1. One more thing to note down – I’ll see if I can find it, even though I don’t really drink beverages :o)
            Yes, that’s my plan. I got a bunch of my old colleagues and my family and so on who wants to know that I’m alive throughout my trip, so I figured writing blogs as signs of life would be sustainable πŸ˜€
