Are you thinking of going to Brisbane? Don't know how to get there or how far it is? Then discover what you can do on your drive to this city!
It doesn't matter if you will be using public transport of some sort (a train or bus), catching a plane, or driving, to Brisbane, I can help you out!
If you are driving from Sydney it will take you a whole day, as it is 921 kms away when driving the most direct route. There are many little scenic route detours you can take that will go through nation parks, the beach and other such natural wonders.
This will turn the one day trip into a two day trip, but I highly recommend it. Many people use the city of Coffs Harbour as their overnight stopover. And don't forget to stop at Byron Bay, just 2.5 hours south of Brisbane.
If you're coming from the north, it could take anywhere from one hour (if you're coming from the Sunshine Coast) to 2 full days or more (Cairns is 1,708 kms) away. You could even be coming from Darwin (the Northern Territory) which is a massive 3,423 kms away.
If you don't have your own transport, you have to make a decision. Will you take a camper van or take a rental car?
