Day 1: Arrival & City Exploration

Howard Smith Wharves under the Storey Bridge, Brisbane, Queensland

First things first, after grabbing your campervan, take some time to explore the city's beautiful riverfront, local cafes, and trendy neighbourhoods like Fortitude Valley and New Farm. You can also visit popular attractions like the Story Bridge Adventure Climb, the South Bank Parklands, and the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary to cuddle with the cutest creatures in Australia!

Day 2: Island Hopping

A number of sunken ships at Moreton Island off the coast of Brisbane in Queensland, Australia

Make time for some island time! Take a ferry to North Stradbroke or Moreton Island, just off the coast of Brisbane and get ready for some adventure. Both islands are gorgeous and have plenty to do, like snorkeling, kayaking, and hiking. You might even spot some dolphins if you're lucky!

Day 3: Hit the Beach

Noosa beach on the Sunshine Coast

Grab your sunscreen and head north to the Sunshine Coast. Noosa and Mooloolaba are both amazing beach towns with crystal-clear waters and some of the best seafood you'll ever taste.

Pro-tip: try the fish and chips from the Mooloolaba Fish Market. You won't regret it.

Day 4: Wildlife Encounters

Glass House Mountains, Queensland Australia

Today, we're headed to Australia Zoo, founded by the late Steve Irwin. Here you can see crocodiles, koalas and tigers, and even hold a python if you're feeling brave. And if you're up for a challenge check out Glass House Mountains National Park for some epic rock climbing.

Day 5: Hiking & Waterfalls

Purlingbrook Falls, Springbrook National Park, Queensland, Australia

Get your hiking boots on and head to Springbrook National Park, just an hour south of Brisbane, for a day of hiking and waterfall chasing. You'll find breathtaking waterfalls, such as Purling Brook Falls and Twin Falls. The park also has several walking tracks that will take you through lush rainforests and stunning scenery.

Day 6: Wine Tasting

Granite boulders in the Girraween National park in Queensland, Australia

If you're willing to venture out a bit and looking for a longer day trip to take in some magical scenery, drive out to the Granite Belt and experience some of the best wineries in Australia. Sip on wine, eat cheese and enjoy the stunning views of the countryside. Did you know that the Granite Belt is one of the highest wine regions in Australia? The altitude helps to create unique flavours in the grapes. And if wine isn't your thing, don't worry; they've got you covered with some microbreweries there as well.

Day 7: Farewell Brisbane

It's your last day in Brisbane city, so make it memorable! Take a stroll along the Brisbane River and enjoy the beautiful scenery. And remember to grab some souvenirs from the local markets. You'll find everything from handmade jewellery to unique artwork. If you’re visiting over the weekend, don’t miss out on Northshore’s famous Eat Street, filled with food vendors of every cuisine and rockin live music from 4 pm Friday to 9 pm Sunday every week of the year. There is also ample parking, even for larger sized motorhomes.
