Our road trip continues with a cruise past the Big Banana icon before pulling into Byron Bay - where you can burn incense, sip chai and become a yoga teacher all in one day. Included today: -Byron Bay highlights Meals: - Breakfast
Day 3: Byron Bay
Anti-McDonald's and anti-anything mass produced (but juice bars, beer gardens and beards), laid-back Byron oozes small town vibes. Hit the shops, test out those newly acquired surfing skills, paddle a sea kayak, or watch whales breach from the lighthouse in winter. This is the town where peace and tranquillity go to relax. You should too. Or jump out of a plane. Byron dsn't care as long as you're happy. Meals: - Breakfast Optional activities: -Dolphin kayaking -Skydiving -Surf lessons

Day 5: Brisbane to Fraser Island
Our morning travels will take us to Noosa, where we’ll have a wander around the national park (ten points if you spot a koala!), then it’s onwards to the dormant volcans of the Glasshouse Mountains before we reach the cosmopolitan charm of Brisbane. Then, we’re off to Fraser Island. UNESCO World Heritage listed and the world’s largest sand island, this place is pretty special.

Fraser is literally one huge pile of sand – as if someone dropped the Sahara Desert into the Pacific Ocean and scattered it with dings and forests.

Included today: -Full-day Fraser Island 4WD experience -Lake McKenzie -Maheno Shipwreck -Eli Creek Meals: -Breakfast -Lunch Optional activities: -Scenic flights from the beach

Embrace your inner cowboy and prepare for some whip cracking and lassoing – today there’s a full day on the farm to sink your teeth into.
