On the east coast highway

My wife and i are planning to drive a camper-van from Cairns to Sydney. We will be on the road for three weeks.

Could anyone recommend good campsites to stay at, and any places of interest to visit.

Thank you

My favourite stops,

Fingal Bay in Port Stephens area.

Crescent Head on the mid north coast of New South Wales

Coffs Harbour


Anywhere around Noosa

Seventeen Seventy


Airlie Beach

Etty Bay

Mission Beach and north of Cairns

Palm Cove

Ellis Beach

Port Douglas

These are all on the coast,many camping/caravan parks available and don't forget there are also many great National Parks you can visit, but depending on what time of the year you'll be here, it's best to visit a National Parks Office and see if they are open at that time.
