A group of children are in trouble with more than just their parents after going on a 600-mile joyride.

The group, aged 10 to 14, packed up fishing rods in one of their parents cars, left a farewell note then drove down the Australian east coast before being pulled over by police.

On their way they allegedly stole fuel from two petrol stations in the 4×4 that belonged to one of their dads then refused to get out when they were stopped after a short chase.

A 13-year-old is suspected to have been driving when officers arrested them but they are believed to have split the driving between them.

They set off from Rockhampton, Queensland, late on Saturday night, and drove around 90 miles to the town of Banana where they needed fuel.

They allegedly stole a tank of petrol in the town of Banana in the early hours of yesterday before continuing on their journey.

They crossed the state border into Glen Innes, New South Wales, before finally ending up in Grafton where they were stopped.

Police are urgently seeking public assistance to help locate four children who are believed to have driven a four-wheel-drive from Rockhampton to New South Wales today. It is understood a 14-year-old boy, two 13-year-old boys, and a 10-year-old girl took the silver 2004 Nissan Patrol (pictured) with Queensland registration 271 JTT from Gracemere overnight. The group took fishing rods, cash and one of the children left a note to his family indicating he was leaving. The four-wheel drive was sighted at a service station in Banana at 4.45am when it was involved in a petrol stealing incident. It is believed the vehicle has since travelled across the border to New South Wales and was sighted near Glen Innes early this afternoon. The 14-year-old boy is described as Caucasian, 150cm tall with a solid build, brown hair, green eyes and a fair complexion. One of the 13-year-olds is described as Caucasian, 160cm tall with a slim build, brown hair, blue eyes and a fair complexion.
