Queensland Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local Queensland Area
Home to one of the 7 wonders of the natural world, the Great Barrier Reef, and with more than 200 national parks covering 6 million hectares, Queensland is a mecca for Australia’s wonderful and unique flora and fauna. Let us be your local guide to just a few of the many exciting attractions that Queensland has to offer.
Beginning in Northern Queensland, be sure to prepare your senses for an assault of immense fascination as you adjust to the state’s distinctive traits. Townsville , The Billabong Sanctuary , and the delights of The Great Barrier Reef await you!
Step into the wild and head south for a trip to gorgeous Tropical North Queensland , where the golden sands hover in an elegant limbo between rolling desert hills, lush tropical rainforests and sparkling blue waters. Meander with the tourists and experience the full-frontal beauty of Palm Cove with a dive or a snorkel into the depths of aquatic desire.
Come up for some air and some refreshment as you head south towards the Sunshine Coast , but make sure you stop off at Hamilton Island and Daydream Island on the way. As you approach the southern parts of the state, you’ll begin to pick up speed, hitting the trifecta of titillating tourist destinations at the Sunshine Coast, the Gold Coast and the centrepiece of humble Queensland, Brisbane .
Gaining speed, your senses are bombarded with hundreds of things to do and see, so take out your check-list and start marking off a few of Queensland’s infamous attractions. Wedged between the sands of the Sunshine Coast and the thriving nightlife of the Gold Coast, be sure to immerse yourself in busy Brisbane. Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane Lookout and the family-friendly Sea World all call South Queensland home, so make sure you finish on a high and take in some these home-grown delights.
In Queensland, there are things to do all year round, so make sure you add the Sunshine State to your list of places to go!
