Road trip from Cairns to Sydney, sun and beach in Fiji and big city, foodieheaven and adventure in Singapore. Three in one! Australia is a country located in Oceania according to elaineqho.
The world’s largest coral reef, one of the world’s oldest rainforests, the world’s largest sandy island, the world’s highest concentration of wild koala bears, one of the world’s most beautiful beaches, a giant pineapple – all just some of the highlights of a trip through Queensland, Australia. You experience everything in a rented minicamp, so you have full freedom to drive exactly where you want and be there for as long as you want. Almost. After Australia, the Pacific Ocean is waiting. You fly to Fiji, where next week is about sun, beach and relaxation. The trip is rounded off in Singapore, which offers big city soul and powershopping.
Day 1: Departure from Sweden
Travel from Sweden to Australia. Pga. the time difference you arrive in Cairns first day three. On the way there will be a stopover, and it is possible to make a stop on the way. Talk to your travel agent for more information.
Day 3: Arrival in Cairns
Arrival in Cairns. You take yourself to your centrally located hotel, where you will spend your first two nights. Cairns is Queensland’s most visited city and is the starting point for a wealth of exciting nature experiences.
Day 4: On a voyage of discovery in Cairns
The day is yours to do what you want with. You may choose to go on a day trip to the world’s largest coral reef, the Great Barrier Reef, or you may take a trip north to Cape Tribulation, where you will find one of the world’s oldest rainforests.
Day 5-13: On a road trip in a camper from Cairns to Brisbane
The next ten days are in the spirit of freedom. In a rented minicamp you drive south towards Brisbane. A mini camper is something in between a car and a camper. There is a small kitchen and a double bed as in a camper – in return it costs no more than a regular rental car. There is no toilet or shower in the mini camper – but it is much easier to get around with than a camper. If you want freedom and want to venture out into the Australian countryside, but still have the opportunity to spend the night in a hostel, motel or hotel, a mini camper is the perfect solution. The mini camper is equipped with everything you need: blankets, pillows, bedding, kitchen equipment, towels, dishcloths, gas stove, water tank, etc., so you can easily use the many campsites and accommodation options in the national parks. It is 1,700 km from Cairns to Brisbane. The entire coast offers a string of cities, national parks and beautiful beaches, but remember to also make some detours into the country from time to time. You should treat yourself to a boat trip among the 74 islands in the Whitsunday Archipelago and the world’s largest sandy island, Fraser Island, is also almost a “must”.
Day 14: Delivery of motorhome and flight to Sydney
Once you have left your camper in Brisbane, you will go to the airport and fly to Sydney. You will take yourself to your centrally located hotel in Sydney, where you will spend three nights.
Day 15-16: On a voyage of discovery in Sydney
You have the next few days available to explore Sydney. Sydney is the capital of New South Wales and Australia’s largest city. More than 4 million people live here, and the city is an enchanting and amazing experience. The Opera House is of course a great experience for most people who visit Sydney and is an absolute “must see”. Go on a guided tour here and find out how this architectural miracle was built. In the same area is Harbor Bridge. Here is a small museum about the construction of the bridge, and you can take the 200 steps to the top and look out over the city. The adventurous can climb the bridge. Next to the Opera House is the botanical garden, where eager exercisers run or cycle all day long. Make a lunch bag and enjoy lunch here, in the shade of a tree overlooking the harbor, the opera house and the bridge. It’s absolutely amazing.

Enjoy the sun, the water and the beach or take a diving trip, snorkeling trip, sailing trip, fishing trip, hiking trip – you can do just as little or as much as you want. The last night is spent again on the main island, so you are close to the airport.
