The east coast of Australia has a well worn travel path carved into it, running from Cairns to Melbourne in either direction.  Along the way there are a set of stops which virtually everyone picks, and all the tour agencies promote.  These include from south to north: The Great Ocean Road, Melbourne, Sydney, Byron Bay, Gold Coast / Surfers Paradise, Brisbane, Fraser Island, Agnes Water / 1770, Airlie Beach & The Whitsundays, Townsville / Magnetic Island, and finally Cairns.  Most people don't stray very far off this path, but some of these places were not even that developed until fairly recently, so why do people not explore new places more often?  Recently I took a road trip from the Gold Coast up to a place called Yeppoon on the Capricorn Coast, where we set off for a sail around the Great Barrier Reef and Keppel Islands.
