Brisbane to Byron Bay

Driving Time: 2hrs Distance: 166km

After collecting your hire campervan from Brisbane, drive an hour south to the legendary Gold Coast. Soak up some rays on the endless yellow beaches, take a surfing lesson, enjoy ‘the Goldie’s’ excellent dining or just pull up a chair and indulge in some world-class people watching. For a quieter experience, you could take a paddleboard out on Currumbin Creek or head into the hinterland to visit Springbrook National Park.

From the Gold Coast it’s an easy drive south to Byron Bay. If you’ve got the time, why not visit the new-age Crystal Castle or stop for fish and chips in gorgeous Kingscliff or Pottsville?
