Queensland Big Red Self-Drive Holiday

Looking for your next adventure? Try a self-drive holiday from Brisbane to Durham. Typically taking 3-4 days, we've added a few extra stops in to turn this self-drive caravan holiday into a magical trip to remember!

Day 1: Brisbane to Goondiwindi

On the first day, head out of the hectic day-to-day of Brisbane life by winding along the roads to Toowoomba where you can stop to stretch your legs and enjoy a coffee at one of the many highly-rated cafes this town has to offer. After your break, head south-east to Goondiwindi; which offers a range of attractions for the Queensland traveller, from the tobacco museum to the regional art gallery and the national heritage and water park.

Day 2: Goondiwindi to Nindigully

Before leaving Goondiwindi, drop into the botanic gardens and give your legs a good stretch before heading out to your next destination, Nindigully. Home to Queensland's oldest pub, and arguably, the best steak, Nindigully Tourist and Visitor Area, situated on the Moonie River, offers free accommodation for camping and caravans.

Day 3: Nindigully to Cunnamulla

After a peaceful night's rest along the banks of the Moonie River, set out for Cunnumulla. If time allows, stop in at Bollon and explore one of their many national parks or the Nullawokka First Nations Gallery.

Day 4: Cunnamulla

If you enjoy nature and history, it is worth spending an extra night or two (or three) in Cunnamulla. The Warrego River is a nature lover's paradise, offering kayaking, fishing and birdwatching. Fossil enthusiasts will love the chance to get up close with mega-fauna at Euromanga Natural History Museum. You may even want to try your hand at fossicking for opals at Yowlah.

Day 5: Cunnamulla to Noccundra

A 339km drive will bring you to your next destination, Noccundra. Give your legs a stretch and explore the ruins of the old town store and police station, visit the Hume Memorial or stop in at the pub and enjoy a cold drink and a chat with the locals.

Day 6: Noccunbdra to Durham

To experience an iconic part of Australian history, travel to Durham and see the historic Burke and Wills tree, part of the legendary and ill-fated expedition. A short, 30m walk down the riverbank brings you to Face Tree, where John Dick carved Burke's face into the tree.

Day 7: Where to next?

After resting in Durham, the choice is yours. Either make your way back to Brisbane or head across the border to Innamincka and continue an adventure into South Australia.
