Visits to Sydney,Brisbane,Noosa & Airlie Beach for starters

We are coming to Australia in Feb 2009 for 5 weeks. Starting off in Sydney, but want to go to Brisbane, Noosa and Airlie Beach (GBR). Looks like we can drive between Brisbane and Noosa. Seems like everything goes back to Brisbane to catch flights between the other cities. Is there an easier way? Is flying our only option? After these cities, we plan on flying to Perth. We have already been to Cairns and Port Douglas. Thanks for any help you can give me. Pam

Hi Pam, yes you are correct. You can drive between Brisbane and Noosa, but flights to Airlie (Proserpine or Hamilton Island airports) go from Brisbane. You'll also need to go back to Brisbane to transfer to a flight to Perth.

You could possibly go from Hamilton Island > Cairns > Perth, but I don't think it would be any better time/price wise.

You can fly with Qantas from Sunshine Coast airport ( Noosa) to Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide - not sure if that helps at all ??

Thanks for your help. We plan on flying from Sydney to Proserpine Airport. Will stay in Airlie Beach for a few days and then do a 3 day cruise (probably Pacific Sunrise). Will then fly to Brisbane, rent a car and drive to Noosa. Back to Brisbane for a few days and then fly to Perth. How's all that sounding? Thanks again. Pam
