Driving from Brisbane to Sydney

by debbyws

I have about five days to drive from Brisbane to Sydney. As I have been along the coast, I need suggestions of sights to see and roads to travel. I want to see as much as possible. I will be leaving Brisbane October 16. Thanks for any help.

Re: Driving from Brisbane to Sydney

Well you have a bit of a choice here. You could go west for a while say via Toowoomba or Warwick. Maybe as far as St George ...then come down to Lightening Ridge...stopping at Hebel for scones...

Look at my album on my home page on St George. http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/tt/ac8c0/#TL

You could then cut over towards the coast again vie Moree and the hot springs leading you back to more civilized country and The New England Highway.

I have to go but will follow this up.

Or instead of going to St George go from Warwick down the New England Highway...you will pass through the Grape Growing district ..then on to Glen Innes, Armidale, Tamworth, Muswellbrook, Singleton, Maitland.

If you cut over from Tamworth to Gunnedah you can head to Dubbo and the Dubbo Zoo and to Canberra even and come to Sydney from that angle.

When you eventually cut over to Sydney you can as an alternative choose the route through the Blue Mountains.

Just back to my earlier answer re going via St George it can be very hot there esp in mid summer and esp in Lightning Ridge..also read up on hazards of driving on country roads...this is in the link I gave you on St George page.

If any of this appeals let us know and myself or another VTer will fill in the gaps.

Travel Tips for Brisbane

Blue Skies and Beaches

by unravelau

I was going to suggest Coffs Harbour because apart from the good climate, and friendly safe environment, we also have two substantial hospitals and umpteen nursing homes. On the other side of the coin we are only an hour away (by plane) to Sydney, yet a hop skip and a jump from the real bush. What more could anyone want?

Carole. Brisbane is a pretty busy place but you still have to travel a distance to get to choose a beach. Of course if you like the big city environment with a hot climate then you will have made the right choice. Think about the out of the city options and along the coast either way north or south. I have never regretted my move from the big city (Sydney) to the country area 30 years ago and still think that we have the best of both worlds here.

NATIONAL PARKS IN QUEENSLAND

by balhannah

Queesland has lots of beautiful National Parks where you can visit for a day, or, if you want, camp with a Tent, Campervan or Caravan for a longer time. Its a chance to experience the Wildlife up close. Lots are only about early morning or late afternoon, plus its so much quieter then, a greater chance of seeing them. There are lots & lots of walks to beautiful scenery as well. Peace, quiet, tranquillity, what a lovely way to wake up in the morning.

The website for all the information you need on Queensland National Parks is........

The Colour Purple - Take a look at the trees

by pedroswift

Well!?? maybe not purple?
People from Brisbane and nearby regions associate the brilliant displays of mauve flowers put on by the Jacaranda trees each Spring with examinations (school and university). The annual flowering of these wonderfully colourful bloomers every October-November coincides with the time of last desperate efforts to cram knowledge into students' heads before university or high school examinations.
I can recommend to visitors coming to Brisbane at this time of year to look about you for good examples of these trees ( and other varieties in bloom ). I find them gob-smackingly beautiful especially individual trees in their prime set amongst evergreens found unexpectedly as one drives around the suburbs.
New Farm Park is a good place to visit an area with lots them. Also a view from Red Hill over the inner western suburbs of the city will reveal a patchwork of mauve and gold( silky oak trees).
Other cities in Australia have beautiful Jacarandas and hold annual festivals to celebrate the flowering. However, Brisbane can claim the first of these South & Central American trees to be planted in Australia. check out: http://www.signaturebrisbane.com.au/?ref=MTYzMg==

WIVENHOE DAM

by balhannah

Wivenhoe Dam is a nice place to visit at any time, especially if you wish to make a day of it. Plenty of picnic areas and room for games, a great family destination.

Another time to visit, is when the Brisbane area has had a huge amount of rainfall and the Dam is full. The Dam's floodgates are open, usually a few at a time, but if necessary, the whole five are opened at once.

We, along with hundred's of others, went along for the look. There are several view points, and what a sight it was. The roar and force of the water, the water heading towards Brisbane down the Brisbane River, was one big, frothy, white mass!
If you didn't have a raincoat on, then you were quite wet from the spray.
We found the best area to view the sight was from upstairs, it wasn't until we went up, that other people realized there was another section for viewing.

If you can, try to go on a weekday, it still was busy, but was regulated well. We queued for a while, and as a car left, another was allowed in. I noticed the sign said to expect a 30min delay, this would be on weekends.

So, if you are here when this happens, go for a look as it doesn't happen very often at all.

The Dam is located 80kms from Brisbane, heading towards Ipswich and then to Esk. It is easy to find, just follow the Brown Tourist signs.
