Queensland Holidays

With its long golden beaches, vast expanses of emerald green rainforest and breath-taking marine life boasting every colour of the rainbow, the Sunshine State offers nearly 4,350 miles of sun-kissed coastline, perfect for exploring on a road trip alone, as a family or couple.

Queensland holidays offer you the chance to explore some of the world’s best beaches, with the powdery white sands of Fraser Island, the stunning sunrise surf spots in Noosa, and the tropical shores of Cape Tribulation, fringed by the lush green flora and fauna of the ancient Daintree rainforest.

Get your city fix in cosmopolitan Brisbane, the region’s capital. Alternatively, if you’re looking to escape the bright lights and big buildings then hit the road and head north for a tropical slice of paradise.

Cairns is the gateway to great Aussie adventures where you can embark on an unforgettable cruise, sailing past the 74 Whitsunday Islands, snorkelling over the Great Barrier Reef. You can even spend the day swinging in the treetops on a Jungle Surfing canopy tour in Cape Tribulation.

Queensland Holidays: The Sunshine State

With plenty of beaches to choose from, catering to all levels of ability, why not book a surf lesson on the Gold Coast? If you’re travelling with your family and looking for plenty of fun, then you can enjoy an action-packed day at one of the many adventure parks such as Seaworld, Movieworld or Dreamworld.

Or you can head towards the Sunshine Coast and spend a day at the world-famous Australia Zoo.

Queensland is a haven for wildlife lovers, with natural events such as the whale migration in Hervey Bay and turtle-hatching in Bundaberg. This is your chance to see some of the greatest spectacles in the world.
