If there’s one thing Queensland has coming out is proverbial ears, it’s excuses to be in the ocean. Snorkel or scuba dive to explore one of the world’s richest and most mysterious underwater “landscapes”. Throw a line in the water to catch jumbo fish, catch glimpses of migrating whales, or say “aw!” while watching nesting sea turtles. And that’s not all. You can also hang ten in one of several world-famous surf destinations, or escape to a romantic tropical island with your one and only.
Still think dryer climes are more your style? No problem. Just head west or south, past farmlands and forests to the red crags, canyons and towns of the interior. And you thought Queensland holidays were all about beaches and rainforests.
The seat of awesomeness is most certainly Brisbane. The territory’s capital city offers plenty of neighbourhoods to explore, each with their own flair. Check out our Brisbane car rental options and cruise over to the parties of Fortitude Valley, flashy Paddington, or the bohemian coffee shops of the West End. And grub? This place is a foodie haven. Please, save some room for dessert.
When you’re ready to explore other cities with our Queensland holiday packages, explore the glimmering skyscrapers of Gold Coast or night markets of Cairns. Mackay boasts Art Deco architecture, while Townsville offers all flavours of the nearby food and wine country.
With so many items to check off your bucket list, where can you begin QLD holidays? Our advice is start with the Great Barrier Reef and the waves of the Gold Coast. Take a break from it all by going on your own walkabout in Munga-Thirri National Park or Currawinya National Park. Miss the ocean already? Then head north to the Sunshine Coast and the dreamy Whitsundays Islands.
