‘The Sunshine State’

Brisbane Click through to flora emblem of Queensland...Queensland is Australia’s most popular holiday destination; a paradise for sun worshippers, with magnificent tropical islands, rainforests, creeks, rivers and waterfalls, wonderful coastlines, crystal clear water and beautiful beaches. As you travel inland, into the arid regions, you can have a taste of the other side of Queensland, the outback experience.

The state of Queensland is about 25% of the landmass of Australia. Sharing borders with New South Wales, South Australia and the Northern Territory, this huge state offers a huge range of activities and experiences for the tourist.

Whether you are seeking getting back to nature and our wonderful flora and fauna, or enjoying the cosmopolitan lifestyle of our towns and cities, exploring the history and heritage or experiencing our indigenous art and culture, there is sure to be something for you.

Renown as the ‘Sunshine State’, Queensland has a coastline that stretches 4,350 km. There are several large cities in Queensland offering access to all the attractions of modern urban lifestyles. The capital is Brisbane, with Cairns and Townsville up north, the Sunshine Coast, and the popular Gold Coast in the south. These cities of high rise resorts, hotels, motels, shopping, and entertainment facilities including theme parks, have easy access to the coast and beaches, some offering activities along rivers and lakes, or you can do a self-drive exploring providing an easy way to get around, or better yet book on a guided charter or tour.

Next door to the coast is of course the worlds most famous and worlds largest living organism, The Great Barrier Reef spanning 2,000 km from the tip of Cape York to Gladstone in the south. Make this the year to visit the reef, select your accommodation from our listed destinations.

For those who want something different, head inland to experience the vast outback, whether it is the wonderful Overlander's Way, a 1,550 km drive connecting Townsville to Tennant Creek or the very special Dinosaur Trail, where creatures that have been dead for over 100,000 million years are carefully brought back to life, in some wonderful recreations of what they look like and what life was like when outback Queensland was once covered by an Cretaceous Inland Sea. You can even get involved, as more and more discoveries are made, or head out to some of the designated places to do your own fossil fossicking.
