Cape Tribulation

When Crystal and I were planning before the start of our 2-month long road trip, we knew that we wanted to go as far north as possible on the east coast (while still driving on sealed roads only). That meant: Cape Tribulation! It’s in the Daintree Rainforest, and approximately 2h45m north of Cairns. We found…

Townsville

Right after our boat docked at Airlie Beach after a 2D/2N sail in the Whitsunday Islands, we grabbed lunch with a fun Danish couple we met aboard. Then we had a little car caravan going toward Townsville. I think one of the best parts about joining organized tours is meeting people of similar interests. We…

Fraser Island

After we drove north after visiting the Sunshine Coast, we knew we had to visit Fraser Island. It is the largest sand island in the world, and is a World Heritage Site. Because the island is made of sand, only 4x4s can be driven on the island. Neither Crystal nor I had any experience driving…

Road trip food hacks by lazy people for lazy people

Before we embarked on this trip, I had an ambitious meal plan all laid out with ingredients and a grocery list to go along with it. When we got on the road, this plan obviously went out the window and we ate like busy people who had little time on their hands to cook. We…
