The Great Inland Way is one of those great Australia drives, that actually connects Sydney to Cairns. However, you can also opt to only do the Queensland section of the drive, from the border village of Hebel to the tropical coastal city of Cairns. For those with time on their hand, they can include the option to pop up to Cooktown.

The tour route provides an alternative to the Pacific Coast Touring Route, providing a sort of "off the beaten track" inland drive, that gives you an insight of the Queensland outback or you can do a loop after completing the Great Inland Way, return via the Pacific Coast drive.

With some wonderful towns and attractions along the route, you can retrace the steps of the early explorers and pioneers, enjoy some wonderful inland fishing, enjoy vineyards and historic towns, fossicking for gemstones, explore some of the national parks, relive the heydays of the gold rush, experience the varied landscape as you pass over the Great Dividing Range, national pakrs and World Heritage listed rainforests. Unless you take one of the many enticing side detours, the entire route is fully sealed.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
