There isn't a lot of outback between Brisbane and Cairns, I'd probably get a bus ticket and jump off at all the major destinations like:
- Hervey Bay for a Fraser Island tour
- Airlie Beach for a Whitsunday Island tour
- Cairns for a trip into the Daintree/Cape Tribulation and up into the Atherton tablelands

You might be able to book an outback trip from Cairns if you're keen.

I went into the outback between Brissy and cairns, but yeah there wasn't much going on in the way of tours. I just worked on a few farms. you just gotta co a couple hours inland and then bam!! there's nothing!

I say go on the tours that timtravels posted and add in the Great barrier reef when you get into the far north.
