Full itinerary

Charleville

Charleville is the perfect outback getaway, you can do as much or as little as you like. Enjoy the diverse attractions, or find a shady spot to enjoy the country serenity.
For an appreciation of life in the outback, visit the Charleville School of Distance Education and go for a flight, so to speak, with a visit to the Royal Flying Doctors Service Visitor Centre. The Charleville base which has been around since 1943 and today services approximately 622,000 square kilometres of southwest Queensland - an area almost the size of the United Kingdom.

Get up close and personal with the locals at the Bilby experience and at night take in the star studded outback sky at the Cosmos Centre. There are plenty of accommodation choices and fabulous bakeries and butchers in Charleville. Alternatively, catch your own feed of fish in the Ward River. Fishing is popular in Charleville and with the local fishing club restocking the waters you can almost be assured of a catch.

Cunnamulla, meaning 'long stretch of water', sits neatly on the banks of the Warrego River. Feeling the need to stretch your legs, take the Warrego Self-Guided River Walk, go kayaking or drop a line.

This is a general service town with all the facilities that a traveller requires. Make the Cunnamulla Fella Information Centre your first stop, take a tour of the jam-packed museum and ask for directions to the Sandhill to take in the sunset. Historical sites range from the Bicentennial Museum and Old Masonic Lodge to the Robber's Tree. The latter was a short-term sanctuary for Joseph Wells, who bungled an attempt to rob the town branch of the Queensland National Bank.

Outback Art in Quilpie has taken off faster than the talented artists can keep up with.

Nine Mile Reef Dive Site

Coolangatta, Gold Coast Area

Nine Mile Reef, off Tweed Heads, has a reputation among locals as being a “sharky” spot. All year long, a good population of wobbegongs call the reef home, but are joined by leopard sharks in summer and grey nurse sharks in winter.

Snapper Rocks

Coolangatta, Gold Coast Area
Free Entry
Snapper Rocks is a small rocky outcrop on the northern side of Point Danger at the southern end of Rainbow Bay on the Gold Coast.

Kirra Reef Dive Site

Kirra Beach, Gold Coast Area
Free Entry
Not far from Kirra Beach, one of the Gold Coast’s top surfing destinations, is one of its most interesting dive sites; Kirra Reef. Consisting of scattered rocky outcrops covered in kelp fronds, there are scores of hidden gems throughout the reef.

Kirra

Kirra Beach, Gold Coast Area
There's variations on what the word Kirra actually means, but some believe Queensland Aborigines named it after a boomerang. Which makes sense as Kirra wraps evocatively around the bend separating Coolangatta and Kirra beaches and in front of Kirra Hill.

Currumbin Waters

Currumbin Waters, Gold Coast Area
Currumbin is an inspiring beachfront community where the epic Currumbin Creek waterway links to the pristine rainforest mountains of the region when heading west.

Cook Island Dive Site

Gold Coast, Gold Coast Area

Coolangatta

Coolangatta, Gold Coast Area
The southern Gold Coast's famous sandy beaches and world-class surf breaks conclude at Coolangatta, renowned for its casual beach-side culture. Spend the day surfing, SUP or swimming with the locals at Coolangatta, Greenmount, Duranbah, Palm Beach and into southern Rainbow Bay.

Tugun

Tugun, Gold Coast Area
Just when you thought the Gold Coast couldn't get any more relaxed you arrive over the hill and into Tugun. This southern Gold Coast suburb is so laid-back that locals fondly call her Tugz (pronounced choog-s) while ancient Aborigines referred to Tugun as a place of "breaking waves".

Currumbin Valley

Currumbin Valley, Gold Coast Area
Heading into the Currumbin Valley is a little like entering an Aladdin's Cave of adventure. From the coastline, head southwest into another world along Currumbin Creek Road which leads to Tomewin Mountain Road winding up to Tomewin Mountain.
