Queensland is subtropical and has distinct wet and dry seasons. It is also home to the east coast’s pride and joy — the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef, making Far North Queensland the perfectly warm winter escape. With natural beauty abounding between the Reef, the Daintree and the Cape, the only way to experience the very best this area has on offer is to take your hotel room on the road with you.
Never mind if you don’t own an RV, simply join Australia’s largest RV sharing community and connect instantly with local owners of caravans, campervans, camper trailers and motorhomes willing to hire out their beloved holiday home. You can choose to either tow or drive a hired RV, or have the owner drop it off at your destination, so it’s ready when you get there. Now for the really tough decision, where to park it?
The gateway to Far North Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns is a vibrant and sophisticated coastal hub. Stroll along the Esplanade, cool off with a dip in the lagoon and take a culturally enriching Aboriginal walking tour. A short, scenic drive north of Cairns is the relaxed and idyllic town of Port Douglas, where you can walk or ride along some of Queensland’s most beautiful beaches.
Find yourself falling in love with the dramatic landscapes of the Daintree National Park, from the spiritual Mossman Gorge, to the luscious green wilderness of Cape Tribulation. Further north there’s the remote Jardine National Park with its sparkling waterfalls and crystal clear creeks. There are stacks of untamed nature reserves and national parks to camp in between Cairns and Cape York.
