You'll have to look further than Sydney. I swear, guys like QFforever are like the 'Americans' of Australia -- there's no world outside of their city limits
You do have a talent for sweeping statements, I am most impressed. Because as we all know, there is nothing like a good old bout of Sydney bashing to show just how brilliantly metropolitan one is. Not to mention the fact that Sydney-siders so often desperately seek approval and comment from other Australians - we are rather fragile in this regard.
You might be a little interested to know (if you can actually see through that haze of Sydney-hatred you're producing) to know that I really love other parts of Australia, Canberra in particular.
It's extremely ironic that you would suggest I have a narrow view of Australia, when it is you who is excluding me (a proud Australian) from the collective population.
Tell me, where abouts are you from - Melbourne?
In the absence of an acute accent I have no idea what you're talking about.

Are most tourist places accessible with a Camry-like car or would a 4x4 be useful?
lol Perhaps you should take a hummer, those crocodiles that patrol the inner cities can get pretty angry at tourists in sedans.
Seriously though, Australia has very high quality roads and highways. However I will say that if you're planning to drive in Sydney or Melbourne - don't. It's best left to the experts (taxi drivers). I always feel on the verge of death when I drive in Melbourne, those damn trams come out of nowhere and stop in the middle of the road.
I should point out though that to drive from Sydney to Melbourne takes about 8 hours+. To drive north to the barrier reef takes quite a few days as well.
If it were me, I'd be surfing Virgin Blue's and Jetstar's websites for some cheap flights.
Fighting for the glory of the Australian Republic.
