Australia is huge – you can fit 31 UKs into it and still have space left. Yet the backpackers, tourists and holiday-makers that travel to Australia all seem to stick to the same path. Start in Sydney, travel up the east coast and end in Cairns. Then they fly off to New Zealand or Asia in the wake of a million other people who have done the same.
Yet venture off the beaten path and you’ll discover a whole world of natural beauty – and not have to share your space with a hundred other travellers all carrying the same backpack as you, all wearing the same Havaianas as you and all going to the same places as you.
