Brisbane to Cairns

We've hired a campervan and have 11 days to get to Cairns from Brisbane in August. Any ideas for a route/what to do/where to go?? We have a 4 yr old and are not divers?

G'day, what are your interests?

Australia Zoo and Underwater World, Sunshine Coast

Hervey Bay - Fraser Island

Whitsundays

Townsville - Magnetic Island

Dunk Island, Hinchinbrook Island

Pronella Park

The Boulders, Josephine falls

Atherton Tableland - crater lakes

11 days will go quickly, however I suggest a few of the above.

Hi Firebucket and thanks

well Underwater world is at Mooloolaba and Noosa is apart of the Sunshine Coast.

I agree about Bundaberg and the rum distillery, Mon Repos is also worth a visit for turtle nesting season.

Cheers
