As we leave Brisbane and Sunshine Coast we also leave heavy development, and small towns and cities change for more rular settings and back. One unplanned half-day long detour inland gives us a hint of how outback is going to look when we get there later, and we are back on coast.
Along the journey we pass great plains with cattle stations, but also mango countries and massive sugar cane countries. As we get to tropical north this is yet replaced by banana countries, saltwater croc countries and Cassowary land. Ultimately we get explore the Daintreee Rainforest full of amazing flora and fauna, and the famous Great Barrier Reef. What a start!
