Touch down in Brisbane, pick up your car and set off for Caloundra, a beautifully laid-back, beachside spot. The soft white sands and warm waters are the main attraction, offering a plethora of water sports including windsurfing, kayaking, fishing and stand-up paddle boarding. If you fancy break from all the beach lazing, head for the Queensland Air Museum, and don’t leave town without tucking into some freshly caught seafood or fish and chips on the beach.

Heading back south, you’ll stop for two days among the rainforest in the Hinterland. Staying in a rainforest retreat, you’ll be surrounded by trees, nature and the sounds of the forest. Spend two days enjoying rainforest walks to plunging waterfalls, learning about the intriguing Bunya Nut Tree, and looking out for the very shy platypus on the Maleny Trail. When not chilling out on your balcony or indulging in a spa treatment or two that is.
