Cairns to Sydney in seven weeks

Me and a friend are travelling from cairns to Sydney next July to august using the oz experience cobber pass.

Is this time frame about right or too long or short?

Is there any places on the way we mustn't miss? We are on a tight budget!!

This gives you plenty of time. It's good you're doing the Ozexperience -- you will make lots of friends (I took that bus 10 years ago and still have friends from it) and your fellow travellers will be as broke as you are, so you can find affordable activities together and stay at youth hostels. Make sure you stop for a few days in Byron Bay -- on your schedule, you could do a whole week there -- and take a side trip to Nimben while you're there, which is one of the most unique communities on Earth.

If you really have seven weeks, I would consider even going past Sydney, on to Melbourne or Adelaide or even Alice springs. Taking Oz experience up the middle of the country is unbelievable - staying in places like Alice Spring and Cooper Pedy...

Really, 2 weeks is all you really need to go from Cairns to Sydney and smell the roses along the way. I say keep on going beyond Sydney!
