I need to do the East Coast on a budget (surprise surprise) and was wandering what people thought were the absolute must do's, don't you dare go home without doing them?!!

Obviously, Fraser Island & Whitsundays (and I've already done Cairns)!

Would be cool to hear how you did it etc too!

Look forward to hearing everyones experiences!!!

Hey! The things I enjoy on the east coast are:
- Cairns for access to Great Barrier Reef, Cape Tribulation, Atherton Tablelands and Mission Beach
- Airlie Beach for access to the Whitsundays
- Mackay for access to Eungella NP
- Fraser Island
- Byron Bay
- Nelson Bay
- Blue Mountains

Are you going all the way to Melbourne or just to Sydney?
