The best journey is planned in advance, and retains a good bit of flexibility.
Please consider that by flying from city to city in Australia you will just be sitting in another jet-plane missing out on the scenery down below. But, by planning and allowing one or two days for a road trip between cities, your experience of Australia could be enhanced immeasurably.
Why fly when you can be driven there. NO-PROB-LIMO can provide secure comfortable transport between Sydney or Brisbane, or to just about anywhere in Australia. Couples and small groups up to four will find costs very competitive with flying.
Unlike Australia's Outback, much of the east coast is dominated by The Great Dividing Range. Apart from picturesque farms, pastures, human history and pre-history, the ranges are covered with the complex natural history of the worlds oldest landmass. Moist and dry eucalyptus forests, temperate - subtropical and tropical rainforests, high plains, volcanic outcrops, mountain streams, waterfalls, rivers and wetlands; all abundant with the unique plants, marsupials, reptiles, astonishing bird-life and biodiversity of “the land down-under”.
Some East Australia Natural & Historical Expedition Ideas
Obviously one could go on and on with potential journeys and routes. Below are some suggestions that may help. NO-PROB-LIMO can help develop the journey that meets your particular needs.
Finding Mungo Man - March through November is best. (Outback)
Lake Mungo sites the worlds oldest ritual burial. See the Finding Mungo Man page on this site.
Back of Bourke - March through November. (Outback)
Once a vital river port on the Darling River, Bourke is at the northern gateway to the far west of New South Wales. There are many ways to get to Bourke, some more interesting than others.
Darling River Run - Mountains to Mungo - March through November. (Outback)
This journey is a long one, it includes much of the Darling River length, and can end at Wentworth New South Wales or Goolwa (where the river meets the sea) in South Australia. Of course this journey could be made from Goolwa to Queensland travelling upstream.
Broken Hill - "The Silver City" March through November is best. (Outback)
Wilsons Peak or Mount Jiramon – This journey takes you from Queensland's Gold Coast or Northern NSW to the very head of The Darling River Basin near Killarney Queensland. Wilsons Peak intersects the Great Dividing Range and the Border Ranges that divide Queensland and New South Wales. Water run-off from Wilsons Peak forms three major rivers in the region; The Clarence, Logan and Condamine Rivers. The Condamine eventually becomes the Darling River, then the Murray River flowing to sea at Goolwa in South Australia, 3,925 kilometres away (2,438 miles).
Broken Hill New South Wales is an old mining town known for silver, lead and zinc mining. Broken Hill was the starting place of the worlds largest mining group BHP - Billiton. The geology there is astounding.
Interesting - The average drop of the Darling River is 16mm/kilometre.

Waterfall Way - From sea to mountain top and return.
Mid-North Coast New South Wales – Waterfall Way is a scenic/historic road from Urunga to Armidale via Bellingen and Dorrigo. Passing Bald Rock National park and Round Mountain at 1,560 metres (5,203') above sea level, (Australia’s highest point north of the Snowy Mountains), and Wollomombi Falls, with a stunning 220 metre drop (722'). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wollomombi_Falls
Starting in Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour or Armidale this journey can be made in a day or stretched out to be a great two or three day loop to include Uralla, Walcha, the Hastings River Valley.
