Travel companions wanted for an amazing 10-12 day trip along the Queensland coast
Hello CS community :-)
My friend and I have been thinking about going on an awesome 12 day trip along the Queensland coast around the end of Oct/beginning of Nov and we would love it if some of you would join us on that adventure.
We are probably taking a flight from Melbourne up to Cairns on Oct 26. Lots of friends and family of mine have been to QLD heaps of times and have recommended me some great insider spots as well as hot deals for the regular touristy stuff (such as reef trips).
We would probably rent a car for a day up in Cairns to cover places like Cape Tribulation and Port Douglas. And then do a one day reef trip.
We also spotted a great deal at Thrifty car rental and we would hire a car for 6 days (they have a great one-way bargain on offer around that time) and drive down the QLD coast to Brisbane. Along the way we would of course try and cover all the major spots (Whitsunday Islands, Airlie Beach, Mission Beach, Fraser Island etc.) as well as the more remote insider ones (such as Atherton and the crocodile farms in Yeppoon).
Down in Brisbane we would probably do another day trip to Gold Coast and of course check out Surfer’s Paradise and maybe one of the water theme parks…
Our flight back to Melbourne would depart on Nov 5 (we booked via Tiger Airways – they currently have some great deals for that period of time!).
Those were just ideas that we came up with (mostly recommendations from friends actually ;-)). Of course, we’d love to do all which is fun and we’re not on a particular schedule or anything…
The thing is we’d love it if some of you would like to join us along the way (esp with the car rental thingy along the coast – share all costs) or even for the whole trip! It’s always great fun travelling with a crowd and we’ve both had some great experiences travelling with CSers, so yeah… there you go :-)
Long story short, if that sounds appealing to someone – feel free to drop me a message!
Meanwhile have a good day!
