With Brisbane as your Australian base, your road trip destinations are endless. Search with easyCar to find the perfect car for your coastal drives.

The Sunshine Coast

The drive of your life

If you’re tempted by great beaches, subtropical rainforest and plenty of sunshine, head north of Brisbane to the sunshine coast. Though quieter than its southern coastal drive (the Gold Coast), the Sunshine Coast impresses with pristine scenery and lookouts over the Pacific Ocean.

One of the first stops you should make after leaving the city is Glass House Mountains, a park filled with fantastical formations of rocky peaks, which seem to abruptly rise up from the landscape. Drive on to Noosa National Park, where you will find kilometres of hiking trails and the clear waters of Tea Tree Bay.

Next stop: Rainbow Beach. From Noosa the most spectacular route to Rainbow Beach is along the Great Beach Drive, but be aware – you need a 4x4 to make this part of the journey. To cap off your road trip, visit Fraser Island, the biggest sand island in the world.
