Need advice from Brisbane to 1770 road trip with toddler

Hi there, I have 1 year old toddler. We are confused where to go for 4 day road trip - may be 1770.

How should we plan our iternary for 4 days? I mean where to stop and what to do in 1770? Please advise.

Any other good iternary from Springfield Lakes? Thanks

Do you want to do a drive with a different place to stay each night, or do you just want to drive "somewhere" and park up for a few days"?

It depends very much on your toddler, but if it were me, I would be driving to Caloundra and staying at Golden Beach or Currimundi Beach for the whole time.

Cheers.

We husband want to explore bit far like 1770 or witsunday. But we are not sure about activities with our walking toddler. We were doing beach daytrips so far :)

The Whitsundays are not suited to a toddler - it is all about sailing, drinking and partying. 1770 could be a good option, as is Noosaville or Hervey Bay.

South from Springfield, Byron Bay, Lennox Head, Ballina and Yamba are all great options (Avoid BB on a weekend though - super busy).

Cheers.

Hi,

You do have a few options available. Hamilton Island with toddler is okay if u don't want to do any water sports or sailing.

Town of 1770 is very nice & would suit a road trip from Brisbane. We usually stay at Pavilions Apartments 1770 which are very good for families.
