The main usual stops are :

Byron Bay. Beautiful and laid back hippy atmosphere, great surfing, lighthouse walk. Worth going into the hinterland if you can. Nudist beach at Bilongil beach :)

Brisbane, and head out to Australia Zoo, Steve Erwin.

Noosa Heads, AYH is a really nice old building, clean and well priced. Nice ocean walk, nudist beach here too!

Fraser Island for 4x4 camping on the beach, the two stop offs are either Rainbow beach, or Hervey Bay.

Airlie beach for a boat trip out to Whitsunday Islands.

Possibly a stop at Mission beach.

Then up to Cairns.
