    That Gold Coast region has it all Michela. Heck; never visited for more than 2 hours but the descent and also endless travel blogger posts show the coast, and hinterland, provide travelers with an unforgettable experience.

    Wow! That’s an amazing list! I have been to Great Ocean Road and Yarra valley. Melbourne is an excellent base for all beautiful road journeys.

    Hi Michaela, I too have done most of these trips as a solo traveller and can also recommend them. Sounds very much like we have been on parallel journeys! I’m just planning another trip to far north Queensland myself and could not agree more about allowing time for the Atherton Tablelands. Also, the scrublands behind the great divide are truly rich in wildlife as well. Great country! I have also travelled solo within the Kimberley, staying on stations, which was also pretty amazing. So remote and the scenery is breathtaking. There is now a group, called Rolling Solo, for women travelling alone around Australia, who are happy to come to each other’s aid in the event things go wrong or for catch ups, skill sharing and to have some social time. I also found solo travel through Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Chile wonderful and Canad is another fabulous destination for solo travel. Like you, I have travelled solo extensively across Europe as well! Happy solo travels!
