Holiday here this year
We’ve listed the top 10 road trips across the state.
Queenslanders love a good road trip.
Whether it’s heading to the beach for a long weekend, hiring a motorhome for a family getaway or exploring somewhere off the beaten track in a 4WD – Queensland families are drawn to the outdoors.
With Queensland being the second largest state in Australia, and road-tripping being so popular, it was fitting for RACQ to highlight the state’s must-see destinations. We’ve featured our top 10 road trips in detail below with the help of motoring writer Barry Green and travel writer Lee Atkinson.
You’ll find the best maps, links to local attractions, discounts, images and safety tips to ensure you’re completely covered while on the road. The trips cover popular travel routes in Queensland and are suitable for all kinds of road-trippers. They include short weekend drives, challenging off-road tracks and long-distance adventures.
They strategically avoid well-trodden paths and focus on stunning rainforests, beaches, tourist attractions, lookouts and even bakeries to make your next road trip unforgettable.
RACQ can help you on your way, whether it’s providing maps and guides for your journey, car hire, discounted motorhome hire with Apollo Motorhome Holidays, insurance or roadside assistance so you’re covered 24/7 on your trip.
