Home to some of the world’s most remarkable reefs and award-winning beaches; Queensland is understandably one of Australia’s most popular state destinations.
Fondly known as Australia’s ‘Sunshine State’, Queensland boasts some of the country’s best weather. Most visitors come here to soak up the sun, enjoy the massive sandy beaches, see the Great Barrier Reef and sail around the exquisite Whitsunday Islands. From beach lovers to the adventurous traveller, Queensland holidays offer something for everyone.
From Brisbane to up to Cairns, the coast is lined with golden beaches where you’ll find Queenslanders making the most of the sunshine and great surf. The Nature Coast reaches along the state’s southern coastline, while further north you’ll find the famous Great Barrier Reef – one of the seven natural wonders of the world and a bucket list favourite (and rightly so).
The Queensland Hinterland also lures those who like to keep active on their holidays. Discover the walking trails of Lamington National Park or go on an escorted walkabout into the Queensland bush to meet the locals and learn more about the area’s indigenous ancestry. Perhaps try a different perspective – did you know that Tropical North Queensland is among the world’s best locations for hot air ballooning? You do now!
With five UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the world’s largest natural wonder and lively coastal cities, not to mention perfect BBQ weather – holidays to Queensland are sure to leave you wanting to return again and again.
