The lazy person's guide for places to see, eat and stay.
Aussie East Coast
The cities of Gold Coast, Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast are perfect for a 10 day road trip.
If you are flying in to Gold Coast like I did, conquer the cities in a linear fashion by following my recommended sequence 1 – 4 below:
Glass House Mountains
Contrary to popular belief, you actually do not have to drive in Australia. There are inter-city buses available so you can do almost the whole trip via public transport. But if you have 4 pax or more, renting a car may overall be cheaper!
3. Glass House Mountains
The Mount Ngungun summit walking track is a 2.8 kilometre trail that begins in open forest and offers great views of the Glasshouse Mountains. One of the most memorable easy treks in my lifetime, because it offered such expansive views of the plains. Come at sunset to see the sky colours at its best, but note that it will be pitch dark shortly after as the trail does not have lights.
