Does anyone have any vital activites/recommendations to take part in, between Melbourne and Cairns? Apart from the obvious Whitsunday's and Fraser Island?

Cheers in advance

I'd recommend:
- Sydney for a couple of days
- Blue Mountains for a day trip
- Nelson bay
- Byron Bay for a couple of days
- Fraser Island for a few days
- Mackay (hiking and swimming in Eungella National Park)
- Airlie Beach (access to the Whitsundays) for a few days
- Cairns for access to Cape Tribulation, the Atherton Tablelands, snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef and Mission Beach

Byron Bay if you want some real bohemian culture. The Gold Coast if you like theme parks. I don't particularly like Brisbane myself though, so I wouldn't recommend stopping there lol

Yep, Byron Bay and surrounding areas, Noosa Heads in Queensland.

Hi nel.
Guess it depends on what floats your boat.
I found Lennox Head nice, if you like hand gliding/para gliding seems to be the place where the mad buggers
jump off cliffs.
Plenty to see in the cairns area too.
