Pacific Coast Way

Brisbane City, Brisbane Area

The Pacific Coast Way links coastal havens, hinterland towns, and major cities all along the east coast, from the Gold Coast to Cairns. The Pacific Coast is a 'big' drive. Take your time: the real journey hides just out of sight, ready to be discovered off the highway.

From South East Queensland to the Tropical North discover world class resorts, lush farming regions, stunning coastline, and communities that inspire sea changes. Linger near the warm temperate Pacific Ocean, where cocktail hour includes a backdrop of blue waters crashing onto white shorelines. Detour inland and savour the hinterland bounty of fine food and wine, antique stores, and lovingly restored pubs and boutique accommodation. National Parks filled with waterfalls, rockpools, rare birds and animals transport you a million years away. Meander north to the golden beaches and country heart of regional Queensland. Uncover rainforest studded gorges, gemfields, stunning lakes, and long unbroken sandy white beaches stretching out to the Great Barrier Reef. Slip off the main highway and explore the best Australia has to offer, and good living alongside some of the most pristine, preserved natural beauties. Live the good life on, and off, the Pacific Coast Way.
