Hi, I'll be in the Brisbane area for around two/three months. I'll probably be working a 5 day week with the weekend off. I want to explore these areas in the region if possible.

How much time would I need to stay in each place to make the trip actually worth while? There is a lot here but you can let me know what's possible. Thks

Springbrook & Lamington National Park

Australia zoo


Surfers Paradise

Fraser Island

Whitsunday Islands

Carnarvon Gorge

Cairns/Great Barrier Reef

Bloomfield Track

Boodjamulla National Park

Hi Screentrip.

While I cannot answer your question, I would recommend you to change the heading of your enquiry as it has nothing to do with work, then it will attract more people with appropriate knowledge.

The first four could be day trips from Brisbane, but after that you are talking weekends away and possibly up to 3-4 days. Fraser Island you could do in a weekend. As for the Bloomfield Track - if you are renting a vehicle you will need to ensure that you can drive it there. A lot of rental vehicles (even 4WDs) can't be driven on dirt roads ...

Vicki is right, the first 4 could be weekend trips, the others require more time to make a visit worthwhile as they are further away.

Enjoy your trip!
