Hello everyone!
New to Travellerspoint and looking for advice re: road tripping from Geelong, Victoria to the gold coast QLD with my family, husband and two kids ages 12 and 10. We are going to travel inland there with definite stops in Parkes and Dubbo but otherwise we are looking for suggestions of great places to stop along the way. We have seven days to travel there. We then have a five day stop on the gold coast and then plan to travel back along the coast. Looking for suggestions of stops for both routes. Any info would be greatly appreciated
Many thanks :)

If you are going up through Walgett the Lightning Ridge is worth a couple of days especially Chamber of the Black Hand. Also Goondiwindi and surrounds are good to explore. It really depends on the route you are taking as so many of the little towns are great to visit. Make sure you have a pass for the Theme Parks on the Gold Coast and take a day trip to Tambourine. The coastal road back is supposed to be very beautiful and the blowhole at Kiama is great. Hope this helps a little.
