Are you driving? It is over 800 kms Sydney to Melbourne (fairly slow driving so it will be an overnight trip) and about 1700kms Melbourne to Brisbane (partially in "outback" terrain and will take at least 2 over nights). Rockhampton and Bundaberg are north of Brisbane. So, lots of time on the road. It is easy to underestimate the driving times between these places.mikek33 wrote: ↑Aug 19th, 2018 11:25 pmVisiting Australia for 15 days in late Sept into early Oct.
Seeing: Sydney, Melbourne, Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Brisbane.
Would love some first hand advice on things to do and places to see, particularly for Rockhampton and Bundaberg as they aren't as popular as the other locales.
Bundaberg is very close to Fraser Island (we stayed in Hervey Bay). Fraser Island is an amazing place, well worth the price of the tour. There are many tours to choose from.
Rockhampton is a town....in an unusually mountainous area of Queensland and that is unusual. The Capricorn Caves are worth a visit. http://capricorncaves.com.au/
Sunshine or Gold Coast are both typical tourist beach areas. Lots of restaurants, bars, clubs and of course, beaches.
