The Bruce Highway is Queensland’s largest highway. It extends from the capital city, Brisbane, all the way north to Cairns; approximately 1700km. This is a must do road trip if you ever find yourself in Queensland.
There are many major tourist locations between Brisbane and Cairns, including those two cities themselves, as well as many small locations well worth the visit. Check out the following photos from some great spots along the Bruce Highway.
