    Holidays to Queensland

    Marking the start of Queensland is the glittering Gold Coast, renowned for its epic theme parks and the iconic stretch of sand that is Surfers Paradise. An array of exciting activities are on offer in this iconic Australian city, including skydiving, surfing and gliding through the air on some of the world’s tallest rollercoasters.

    Queensland’s Capital City

    At the heart of the Gold and Nature Coast regions lies Queensland’s capital city Brisbane. Home to endless street cafes and restaurants, fine historical buildings, museums, and galleries, this laidback destination makes for the perfect place to either begin your Queensland holiday or stopover as you make your way up the East Coast from Sydney to Cairns.

    Just 25km off Brisbane’s shore lies the third largest sand island in the world, Moreton Island. Hand feed the friendly locals of Tangalooma Island Resort​, snorkel amongst mysterious wrecks, or take a thrilling toboggan or quad bike ride down Mount Tempest, the highest coastal sand dune in the world.

    Beautiful Nature Coast

    North of Brisbane is Australia’s beautiful Nature Coast, home of fashionable resort area Noosa. In this charming town, designer boutiques, stylish restaurants and superb day spas sit within metres of lush hinterland and glorious golden beach. Australia’s Nature Coast is also home to Hervey Bay, dubbed the “whale watching capital of the world” thanks to the humpbacks that frequent the waters from mid-July to early November.

    World Heritage Fraser Island

    A highlight of most Queensland holidays is a trip to incredible Fraser Island, a World Heritage Listed wonder where tropical rainforest meets sandy beach, freshwater lakes contrast against marine abundant seas and you can spot unique wildlife from the sky to the sea. You can experience its highlights on a day tour from Hervey Bay, but to see the best of this breathtaking island, we recommend an overnight stay at the eco-friendly Kingfisher Bay Resort.

    Mesmerising Whitsundays

    Begin your adventure in this epic region by cruising the breathtaking Whitsundays, 74 pristine islands in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Take in the sight of the mesmerising swirls of Hill Inlet, sink your toes into the silica sands of Whitehaven Beach and snorkel in azure waters – the Whitsundays are a truly highlight of most Australia itineraries.

    Incredible Great Barrier Reef

    For those looking to experience the Great Barrier Reef, we recommend Cairns as your base. This laidback city offers plenty of ways to experience this World Heritage Listed wonder, including cruises, dives and even scenic helicopter flights. After a day exploring the reef, take the opportunity to dine in one of Cairns’ fine restaurants or wander its quirky market stalls.

    Ancient Rainforest

    From Cairns, take a trip to Australia’s oldest rainforest, Daintree. Hike through dense emerald canopies, hear the chorus of over 430 different species of bird and cruise along the crocodile-filled waters of the Daintree River. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must on any Queensland itinerary.
