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, 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 up to Cairns, you’ll find Queenslanders making the most of the sunshine, their golden beaches and great surf. Australia's Nature Coast – north of Brisbane to the Fraser Coast – reaches along the state’s southern coastline. While further north you’ll find one of the seven natural wonders of the world – the Great Barrier Reef. Always a favourite on bucket lists (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. Then perhaps see the rainforest from a different perspective. Did you know that Tropical North Queensland is among the world’s best places to go hot air ballooning? You do now!
With five UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the world’s largest natural wonder, not to mention perfect BBQ weather – a holiday to Queensland is sure to leave you wanting to return again and again.
