DRIVING UP NORTH

Sydney to Cairns in 3 days...

Story by Filip Prochazka July 24th, 2016

DAY 1

Since I usually travel on my own I have countless options of altering my plans, routes and schedules in any way I like, at any time I like. So when I was in Sydney I came up with an idea of relocating a rental car all the way up to Cairns. However, the only Sydney - Cairns relocation available at the time was a large campervan which was scheduled for another rental in just five days. I love driving, so I figured why not. To save some time and miles I decided to skip the east coast roads and cities for the less usual, yet more serene and equally captivating inland route.

Despite their cute looks, kangaroos make a big threat to anyone driving the infinite stretches of Australia's highways. Their unpredictable behavior causes an estimate of 20.000 roadkills a year.
