With endless sun, sea and sand, Queensland has all the ingredients for a great ‘statecation’.

And what better way to explore all that the Sunshine State has to offer than on a campervan holiday. With pick-up/drop-off points in Brisbane and Cairns, you can drive one way and fly home. With amazing stops along the way, we’ve planned the perfect route so you need only pack your bags and set off in search of adventure.

Stop 1: The Sunshine Coast

With parks in three great locations, we’ve got you covered. Ingenia Holidays Landsborough is perfect for visiting iconic sites like the Glass House Mountains and Australia Zoo and if you want to take the inland route north through the hinterland towns of Maleny, Montville and Mapleton. If you prefer the coastal route, take your pick from Ingenia Holidays Rivershore or BIG4 Ingenia Holidays Noosa. Both are only a short drive from beautiful beaches. Try your hand at surfing, walk through the Noosa National Park or explore the Noosa everglades by kayak.

Stop 2: Hervey Bay

Hervey Bay is the world’s first Whale Heritage Site, so it’s no surprise that whale watching is one of the most popular activities in town, but it’s also the gateway to Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world. Unless you’re travelling in a 4WD campervan, you’re going to want to park up at Ingenia Holidays Hervey Bay and book a day trip for this one, which gives you a chance to sit back and let someone else to do the driving. Exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site is an adventure in itself. From dune bashing to splashing about in crystal clear creeks and lakes it’s amazing how much fun you can pack into a single day.

Stop 3: Townsville

When it’s time to get back on the road, head north to tropical Townsville. If you can, allow a few days here as there’s plenty to keep you entertained, although you might find it hard to drag the kids away from the water park at BIG4 Ingenia Holidays Townsville. Be sure to check out the view from Castle Hill Lookout, enjoy a stroll along The Strand and hop on a ferry to explore Magnetic Island for a day, to name just a few of the must-do adventures.

Final Stop: Cairns

Don’t be too quick to drop off your campervan, be sure you book a few days at Big 4 Ingenia Holidays Cairns Coconut. This resort-style holiday park is the perfect end to a road trip. The kids will go crazy for all the activities on offer within the park, allowing you a few blissful days of relaxation before heading back to the daily grind. Of course, adventures await outside the park too. The Kuranda Scenic Railway offers a fun day out and a trip to the Great Barrier Reef is a must. With an underwater observatory, even non-swimmers can marvel at the underwater world. One thing is sure, you’ll have plenty of adventures to talk about on your flight home.
